News

Since its inception in 2003, Repticon Reptile and Exotic Animal Expos has welcomed Boy and Girl Scouts and their leaders to our shows with discount tickets for family members and FREE ADMISSION for any Scout or leader wearing his/her uniform.

The Cub Scout Roundtable, Boy Scout Roundtable, and High Adventure-Venturing Forum are being combined for December only.  Arrival is earlier than usual to allow time for food and the program so plan to arrive at 6:30PM.  Everyone is encouraged to bring a pot-luck item to share, but please don't let that stop you from attending!

Check out the pictures. A great time was had by all!
