SPRINGDALE, Ark. - The Northwest Arkansas Naturals are excited to partner with Whataburger for three Scout Night Campouts at Arvest Ballpark during the 2017 season. Scout Nights presented by Whataburger are open to Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and Cub Scouts and will be on Friday, April 21, Saturday, June 10, and Friday, August 25.

The annual fan favorite is not only open to scouts but their friends and family as well. These designated event nights give scouts from Northwest Arkansas and the surrounding area the opportunity to attend a Naturals game for a discounted ticket price. The game is just the beginning as after the game scouts will get the chance to watch a kid-friendly movie on the videoboard as well as camp overnight in the outfield for no additional cost. All scouts and leaders in attendance will receive a commemorative 2017 scout patch courtesy of the Naturals and a coupon courtesy of Whataburger that is redeemable at any of their Northwest Arkansas locations.

All three Scout Nights will feature a post-game Fireworks Spectacular. Friday, April 21 is a Post-Game Fireworks Spectacular with Popular Player Walk-Up Songs presented by SeaPak while Friday, August 25 is a Post-Game Fireworks Spectacular with Fan Vote Music Theme by Farm Rich. Saturday, June 10 is our popular Star Wars Night Post-Game Fireworks Spectacular. Saturday, June 10 begins at 6:35 p.m. while both Friday games start at 7:05 p.m.

"Scout Nights at Arvest Ballpark give us the opportunity to support a fun, safe event for the kids that they'll remember for a long time," said Whataburger Director of Operations Mark Wallace. "We know that some of the best memories come from the ballpark and all of us at Whataburger are excited to join the Naturals for a few fun nights under the stars."
