Bring your group to the Museum for an exciting overnight adventure.  Youth Group Camp-ins offer 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!  And several times a year the Museum also offers special themed Family Overnights for families with school-aged children.


$36 per child and $20 per chaperone. Includes all activities, pizza dinner, access to the exhibits, and spending the night in the Museum. Add an IMAX film to your overnight camp-in:  $8.00 per person for a 45-minute documentary IMAX film and $12.00 per person for a Hollywood film.


To book an overnight camp-in for your group, please call our reservations line at  954.713.0930 or e-mail us at sales@mods.net.




Youth 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 (and no mosquitoes!). If you’re brave enough, you can sleep near the insects and other creepy-crawlies that live in the Museum!
