Bass Pro Shops in Destin and stores nationwide will be be teaming up with the Boy Scouts of America again this year for Boy Scout Appreciation Month during September. During the month, we will be hosting various Scouting Units to solicit donations. All Funds collected will be divided equally between the local Gulf Coast Council and the National BSA Office.
The Destin Bass Pro Shops will again be offering the Fishing and Rifle Shooting Merit Badge Classes on Tuesday and Thursday evenings beginning at 6 pm. Class size is limited and pre-registration is required by calling our Customer Service Department at 269-6200, beginning in late August. Only registered Boy Scouts may apply. There is no fee for the Boy Scout Merit Badge Classes.
Scout Units will again be selling popcorn in the front of our store beginning in late August through the end of October. This annual fundraiser provides the needed money to finance Troop and Pack events throughout the year.
For the 4th year in a row, Destin Bass Pro Shops will host the annual Scout Fun Day on Saturday, October 26th beginning at noon. Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts from all around will be setting up games of chance, skill challenges, and booths for the public to enjoy Free of Charge. This huge event takes place in the Bass Pro Shops parking lot on the northeast side of the building and is fun for the entire family! Just around sunset, when the skies turn dark, the famous HAUNTED TENT opens to the public. Boy and Cub Scouts from all over try to put-on the scariest, most gruesome displays that their imaginations can think of. The Haunted Tent is actually a series of linked military tents connected together so that visitors who dare are led through a maze of dimly lit displays and live action. There is a small charge for the Haunted Tent. While all of this is going on outside, Trick-or-Treaters can come get candy inside the store as we will be in the midst of a week-long celebration of Halloween.
