Scout Camps

 

Explore CSC Day or Night with Scout Programs
Camp-ins, Theme Days and Evening Classes

During camp-ins, scouts participate in classes about a variety of exciting science concepts related to elective requirements, then spend the night among exhibits. There’s also time to explore the science center while it is closed to the public.
