Vacation Week | Youth Activities SCHOOL OF FISH! It’s Back by Popular Demand — Extraordinary Program! We are thrilled to offer this unique, one-ofvacation week a-kind program and partner with our friends at Benson’s Pet Center! A Benson’s educator will discuss the care and handling of your child’s new pet — a Betta Fish! Children will learn about proper care and the responsibility of caring for a new member of the family! They will set up a tank and bring it home with a Betta. To make transport easier and safer for the fish, they will bring the tank home with no water, the Betta in a cup (all in a box for carrying), and a gallon of pre-treated water to use once you arrive at home. Included will be care sheets, a small tank, substrate (gravel) for the tank, deco items for inside the tank, a gallon of safe water, starter food, a Betta fish, and a coupon valued at $5 for a future purchase for your wonderful, new pet fish! Kids can bring special deco items from home, too. Small, plastic figurines make great tank additions.
