I'm with Veerle.
My former council, Istrouma Area Council, Baton Rouge, used to have an
all-nighter called "Baton Rouge After Dark." We had school buses and
church buses to carry the kids, and visited places like hospital, jail,
refinery control center, newspaper printing plant, then bowling and
My district planned (I left before we did it) a similar "St Tammany After
Dark" that was to include hospital, National Weather Service office, NASA
computer center, and jail, postal service distribution center, plus
bowling and breakfast.
There are certainly plenty of places to visit in most districts. I was
looking for places that would have some action, be a little bit out of
the ordinary, and also have the opportunity for the kids to ask questions
and learn something, career-wise.
Kids this age tend to like the idea of staying out all night and parents
like the idea of letting them in the controlled environment we can
Susan, thanks for bringing the idea up. I think I'll ask my Exploring
Chair to plan one of these this fall.
