Best Night Ever!

I am an assistant troop leader for my daughter’s Girl Scouts Daisy troop.  Last night, they had an overnight lock-in at the Discovery Zone in Binghamton, NY.

The day started out a little nerve-racking as the troop leader (who does both Brownies and Daisies) was sick and couldn’t attend.  For our group of girls, I was the only parent there.  However, we had 6 girls total and a few other troops were there with all their leaders and a few parents; everyone was really great and helpful.  This was my first experience doing this.

We arrived at the Discovery Zone at about 6:30ish. 

The girls dropped off their sleeping bags and they had dinner in one of the classrooms. 

Then, they were able to play around the center for about 1 hour and 30 minutes. 

Then, they went into another classroom to do some scheduled activities. 

That was followed by a question and answer style treasure hunt in the dark with flashlights! 

The girls were then able to have a popcorn snack before bed.

For sleeping, the girls could sleep anywhere in the play museum (expect for up high or in a tunnel).

In the morning, the girls woke up, had breakfast, and were able to play for about 30 minutes.  And then, it was time to leave.

I’m going to do a few more posts in a minute with pictures of the Discovery Zone, but it is a great place to go with your children for a fun filled day.
