"I wanted to drop you a note to indicate how well I thought our trip to the zoo went. The staff did a fantastic job with the scouts. As a leader and a parent, I know how hard it is to keep the attention of young boys. Your team did a great job mixing up the agenda so as to not lose their attention. In particular, the boys loved the opportunity to meet the animals in the classroom. They also thought that the night time tour was just super. It felt like quite the adventure!"  Mike Robillard, Cubmaster, Pack 62
