Bring your group to the Museum for an exciting overnight adventure.  Supervised age-appropriate science activities, workshops, exhibit explorations, and live animal encounters and a pizza dinner round out a fun-filled evening before “lights-out” in the exhibit sleeping area. Group camp-ins are open to scout groups, schools, church groups, recreation center groups and other youth organizations looking for a night of fun and unique activities. Camp-ins are a great way for scouts to fulfill badge requirements!  Your camp-in will be in air-conditioned comfort (no mosquitoes!). If you’re brave enough, you can sleep near the insects and other creepy-crawlies that live in the Museum!  Check out the camp-ins listed below for ideas, or let our programs staff plan an evening of fun just for your special group.

Overnight camp-ins run from 6:30 .m. to 8:00 a.m.
