Giant Center Sleepover April 6, 2013 - sign-up now!


Come out and enjoy a night full of fun with Pack 65.  Join CoCo the Bear, and the Hershey Bears Hockey Team as they take on the Syracuse Crunch on Saturday April 6th.        

The game starts at 7:00 PM.  This event is for the entire family, so invite anyone you like: Grandpa's, cousins, neighbors, or friends.  The seats are on the 200 level and our Pack will be able to sit together as a group.  We have 100 seats reserved.   Wear your Hershey Bears gear and maybe some binoculars to see the action up close.

Ticket prices are $13.00 per person.


Then, after the game is over, the real fun begins.  Hershey's 8th Annual Cub Scout / Boy Scout Sleepover!!!

Once the Hockey game is over and the crowd starts to leave, the Extra Activities begin.  There will be a chance for ice skating on the floor of the Giant Center.  There will be skates available to rent, or you may bring your own.  Later, we will be treated to a presentation from Hershey Park's   Zoo America.  After that, they will dim the lights and show a movie on the "Giant Screen."

There will lots of other Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts there to mingle with, share stories, and share adventures.  We will be sleeping in our sleeping bags overnight in the Giant Center concourse.  On Sunday morning we can enjoy a hot breakfast before departing.

The cost for each person staying for the sleepover will be $ 41.00 which includes:

  • Hockey Game admission ticket;
  • a Giant Center meal voucher;
  • a Hershey Bears Scout Patch;
  • a parking pass ( 1 per 4 people);
  • all of the evening entertainment;
  • and breakfast!

The Sleepover Event has a limited number they can allow overnight and usually sells out.  Our order must be paid in full to be considered complete and space guaranteed.  We need to get the ball rolling on this fairly quickly.  The deadline for the Sleepover registration and payment will be Sunday, 27 January.  We'll be taking the numbers to the Giant Center Box Office Monday Jan 28th.   Send checks payable to "Pack 65" to Richard Rager at 555 Randall Circle, Hummelstown, PA 17036.     Remember that funds from the popcorn credits may be used.  Any comments or question please contact Rick Rager, Wolf Den co-leader, at tw0crazykids@verizon.net or 717-303-8228 (cell).  See you there!
