Scouting Programs

Adventure Science Center believes in inspiring young members of the community by facilitating the learning of science through dynamic leadership. One of many organizations that the Science Center recognizes as a young leader organization is the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts.

Experience the ultimate exploration of science with an all-night sleepover! Your overnight experience is from 5:30 p.m. until 8:30 a.m. and includes an educational cart activity, a planetarium show, and time to adventure around the Science Center. Each Sleepover includes a light breakfast.
