Join the crew of Scallywags for a fun family adventure. Your adventure begins with dressing as a pirate, hoisting the colors, tattoo and face painting. Once underway, our pirate crew will teach you how to talk, sing and dance like a pirate. They will share the tales of Lake Erie and explain how the evil pirate Peg Legged Pete stole a chest of this fortune. The crew of Scallywags has been searching for Peg Legged Pete to reclaim the lost booty. If you are prepared, we can find him and get the treasure back on board. All guest pirates aboard “Scallywags” that assist with capturing the treasure will share in the booty, so keep your eyes open and be on the lookout for enemy pirates.

Scallywags’ 16 water cannons are ready to fire when we enter battle during our journey. We will explore a couple of pirate hangouts, along the way, so be prepared! All crew and pirates should stand ready for battle.  Prepare yourselves for thrills, music, and treasure Aarrgghh.

Annual Household Membership

Children are special gifts. Many of us search for that perfect toy car, doll, video game, or gift card to give a child for birthdays and holidays. At the Autism Society Northwestern Pennsylvania, we have a great gift idea for the growing number of families and professionals helping those with Autism…an annual membership. 

This membership includes the sensory and social family outings for free or at reduced cost to many local sites and events in Erie.  We also offer member-only and member appreciation events. 

The cost for the membership is only $25 per household. 

In addition to the events and great support from other families and children, the benefits of community resources are abundant.  

Don't forget the grandparents!  Memberships are a perfect way to include grandparents all year long.

Contact the office at (814) 455-3540 if you would like to gift a membership for a family.
