Scouting Program


Scouting Programs:

Yankee Air Museum is great place for Cub, Boy, and Girl Scouts to explore STEM concepts through activities, games, and experiments. We offer many hands-on workshops specifically designed to fulfill the requirements for a variety of badges, loops and pins.

Cub Scouts

Belt Loop and NOVA Award requirements are generally designed to happen over the course of three Den meetings. Often visits to museums are encouraged in order to enrich the experience. Our Belt Loop programs are not meant to complete the requirements in one whirlwind session but rather to complement your Pack’s activities and to motivate and excite your Cubs as they complete their adventures with their Dens and adult leaders.

Tiger- Stories in Shapes, Family Stories; Wolf- Code of the Wolf, Motor Away; Bear- Forensics, Make It Move; Webelos- Adventures in Science, Engineer

NOVA Awards- Tech Talk, 123 Go!, Swing!
