Solar Eclipse Extravaganza

Event Details

This event is open to ALL families of ALL ages and open to the public!  

Join us for an extraordinary celestial experience at Miami Valley Council's Solar Eclipse Extravaganza, hosted by our enthusiastic and knowledgeable scout leaders. This unique gathering invites the public to witness the mesmerizing dance of the sun and moon in perfect harmony.

Set against the backdrop of the beautiful Cricket Holler Scout Camp, this event promises a day of celestial wonder and educational exploration. Our scouts, armed with their passion for astronomy, will guide attendees through the intricacies of a solar eclipse, providing fascinating insights into this rare celestial phenomenon.

Bring your family and friends to enjoy a day filled with awe-inspiring moments as the moon gracefully obscures the sun, casting a temporary twilight over the camp. With specially designed viewing glasses, attendees can safely observe the eclipse through solar filters ensuring a memorable and safe experience for all.

Aside from the celestial spectacle, the event will feature engaging activities, informative presentations, and hands-on demonstrations about astronomy and space exploration as well as traditional camp activities such as archery and nature walks. Whether you're a seasoned stargazer or a newcomer to the wonders of the night sky, our scouts are dedicated to making this Solar Eclipse event an accessible and enjoyable experience for everyone.

Don't miss this chance to connect with nature, learn about the cosmos, and witness a celestial event that transcends generations. Join us at Cricket Holler Scout Camp for an unforgettable day under the sun, or rather, under the moon's momentary shadow.
