Bring your troop, pack or den for a 2 hour afternoon of learning and fun. Each Scout receives a Museum fun patch and Certificate of Completion for badges or awards earned. Dress for hiking on our trails and the weather.

If there are more than 10 scouts attending, then the adult requirement is a 5:1 ratio of scouts to adults.  *Siblings are not permitted to attend any scout workshops. See below: A $50 deposit will hold your reservation -  Payment in full is due 2 weeks prior to event.
