Launch your scout into an adventure!

We offer educational programs that include exciting hands-on activities that align with badge requirements. Our Overnight Programs are an exciting way for scouts to have fun and learn about science, technology, engineering, math, robotics, and aviation. Scouts sleep beneath our SR-71 "Blackbird" and wake up to the sights of an amazing aircraft and a hot breakfast!

Offerings for Boy Scouts

  • Aviation: Through this in-depth hands-on overnight, scouts will learn the principles of flight and navigation, as well as build FPG-9 gliders and perform a pre-flight inspection.
  • Engineering: Engineers are changing the world all the time. They dream up creative, practical solutions and work with other smart, inspiring people to invent, design, and create things that matter. Scouts will think like an engineer as they participate in engineering design challenges, build simple machines, work as a team, and more!
  • Robotics: Enjoy a full night of robotics. Scouts will learn basic programming using Lego EV3 Mindstorms, create a model of a working robot on the International Space Station, and more! “Get into gear” for this awesome overnight experience!

Offerings for Cub Scouts

  • SAC Adventures: Scouts will participate in aviation-themed activities like using modular robotics, a tour of the hangars, planetarium show, and air powered rockets!

Overnight Pricing

Our overnights are great experiences for scouts aged 8 - 18, and are open for individual scouts or group registration. The Museum requires a minimum of 35 scouts / leaders (combined from all groups). The Museum reserves the right to cancel any overnight that doesn’t meet the minimum. An individual scout must be accompanied by a guardian. For groups we require a 5-to-1 youth to adult ratio.

Payment/Refund/Cancellation Policy

Payment is due upon registration, and all sales are final, as this money is used to purchase resources necessary for overnights. In order to provide the best experience possible for our scouts, space is limited in each overnight.
