DISCOVER THE MUSEUM

Scouts of all kinds can explore STEM and discover history at Yankee Air Museum. We encourage scouts to book a field trip and add on a flight lab, or bring our education partners from Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum and Leslie Science & Nature Center to your site for an outreach program. You can also book a custom overnight adventure for your troop or pack and “camp in” at The Museum. Not ready for a sleepover? Make a day of it when you add on a film screening or flight simulator experience.

Start booking your adventure online now, or contact our Unity In Learning partners at Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum: (734) 205-9543 or fieldtrips@aahom.org.

Scout Camp

CAMP IN ADVENTURES

A limited number of overnight “Camp In” adventures are available at The Museum for groups of 60 or more. Whether you are getting all the Pack families together, or organizing a retreat for all the Girl Scouts in your area, our custom Camp In programs will fill your night with fun, play, and plenty of STEM Learning.

Scout leaders can create a custom program selected from list of activities suited for mixed ages, or from a selection of short lab workshops that help fulfill badge and loop requirements. Your fee includes all programming, plus a late-night snack and bagel breakfast (with plenty of coffee!).

Scout leaders are responsible for making sure that adult chaperones comply with all rules and ratios outlined by Boy Scouts of America or Girl Scouts. Camp Ins are appropriate for participants age 6 and up.
