2016-17 Scouting Events
With more than 100 interactive exhibits and an incredible array of fun and educational opportunities, the Kirby Science Discovery Center offers numerous ways to earn scouting badges year-round.
Set up camp at the Pavilion for a one-of-a-kind indoor program exclusively offered to Scouts! From September through May, science center staff including trained instructors lead overnight camp-ins for Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts.
Scout Camp-In highlights:
• Scout leaders and parents just need to register their Scouts. Chaperones are required to participate during the program, but Pavilion staff plan it all. Your entire overnight experience is organized from the schedule to snacks and meals to the hands-on activities.
• Activities are designed so that each Scout earns the designated badge or belt loop during the camp-in. All requirements are completed at the Pavilion unless pre- or post-activities are necessary per the guidelines.
• Each Scout and chaperone receives a Washington Pavilion patch. Packs or Troops are responsible for purchasing the official scout badge or patch.
• Explore the science center after-hours! Enjoy free time in the science center, a film in the Wells Fargo CineDome and sleeping on our exhibit floors.
• Science center coordinators are registered and trained through Boy Scouts of America and Girl Scouts of the USA.
Join us for an educational experience that any Scout will remember for a lifetime!
