Scout Programs

 Snakes-N-Scales has always supported all types of Scouting; with Scout Programs for Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Brownie Scouts and Girl Scouts.  

We have provided hundreds of reasonably priced Scout Programs for pack meetings, Blue and Gold Dinners, camporees and fairs.

A Snakes-N-Scales presentation is a unique experience. Our shows are thematic so you can choose which show your scouts prefer or have us back many times and not see the same show! We use jokes, stories, animal’s eyes views of the world, anecdotes, factoids, questions and answers and a gentle, controlled, touching experience to make everyone laugh, think and feel. They will laugh because it’s fun, so they will remember it. They will think, thanks to our engaging, experienced teachers. They will touch some animals so they will feel its reality and hopefully someday, when they look back on this event, remember and understand that these creatures are our neighbors on Earth.

The programs are listed as school assemblies. This is done for the sake of ease of searching, we are aware that scout shows need to different from an assembly!

Due to changes in the Federal and State laws animals maybe different outside NJ. We endeavor to bring legal animals of equal interest. Please enquire about changes.

    Dear Bill,

    As you of course know, your colleague Pete Signorelli called me on the day of our Cub Scout picnic to tell me that you were recently injured by a newly rescued animal and would be unable to perform your show for our scouts. I was very sorry to hear about your injury, and I hope that you are recovering well.

    I am writing to thank you, on behalf of all of the cub scouts and families of Pack 55, for your dedication to your work. I could not believe that, given your present circumstances (and the fact that we had only a handshake agreement on your show), you pulled through for us. With nearly one hundred scouts on hand, plus siblings and parents, we would have been running a very large (and disappointing) impromptu kickball game in your absence………

    I am also writing to tell you that you are well represented by Pete. Pete and I had conversations early in the day about the impossible NJ-Long Island Friday afternoon traffic, and I forwarned him that it could take 3 or more hours to get to Long Island, something that I had not considered when I booked the show. Pete came anyway. He spent nearly four hours in the car, with the animals, and somehow managed to get out of the driver’s seat in a good mood. He knew his audience well, and the kids took to him immediately. I speak for all of the parents when I say that his knowledge of the animals was impressive, as was the way in which he imparted it to the boys. He really spoke their language and all of us had a great time.

    So thank you again for your committment to your work. It really helped us end the scouting year on a high note.

    Be well,
    Kim DeMaro
