Our programming covers Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts. We offer:
- Pre-scheduled tours. The cost for general admission is $7 per scout. If a program/activity is scheduled, the cost is a minimum of $8 per scout depending on the program/activity.
- Troop meetings plus tour. Troop meetings can be held in our classroom, which holds approximately 32 people.
Afterwards, the scouts can tour the exhibits. Cost is $7 per person.
- Merit Badge Programs. A regular schedule of merit badge programs is held for Scouts. See below for upcoming programs.
- Special Events. We look for opportunities to hold special events for Boy Scouts and are open to suggestions from troop leaders or parents.
Boy Scout Merit Badge Programs
At this time, all scout programs are limited to 16 participants and will require a minimum of six registrants to hold the program. Please e-mail or call ahead to register and reserve a spot. If needed, we will utilize a wait list for any spaces that may become available. As well, if we receive enrollments that exceed our limit of 16, we will consider scheduling an additional session in which we will first inform and invite those who were waitlisted. If you register for a program and realize you cannot attend, please let us know so another scout may have the opportunity to participate.
Scout health and safety is of great importance, therefore we recommend the use of face coverings. Other precautions include spacing attendees apart, regularly disinfecting equipment and materials, and having hand sanitizer/soap and water readily available. Thank you.
