Scout Day stations will be open between 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. and you will get to choose your tour time when purchasing tickets. This will give troops flexibility in scheduling their visit to participate in stations before or after the tour. A vendor will be on site selling food and drink during the event, as well.
