Girl Scout Troop 42504 of Asheville got the chance to spend the night at Ripley’s Aquarium in Gatlinburg. The girls had the whole aquarium to themselves! They participated in a trivia game and scavenger hunt and made penguin art on T-shirts and pillowcases. They also watched a stingray dive show and got to touch jellyfish, horseshoe crabs and stingrays. After a midnight snack, they bunked down for the night next to the penguin enclosure. The next morning, they had a one-on-one penguin encounter after breakfast. The girls had a great time with this unique experience!
