Scouts

The EcoTarium's museum and grounds make a unique and exciting trip for Scouts of all ages.

The EcoTarium is a great place to take your badge work to the next level. Our wide variety of exhibits and program experiences connect to badges on many topics, such as animals, conservation, space, and engineering. Visit with your scouts to introduce them to a new badge topic or to inspire them to connect their badge work to the real world in a new way! With advance reservations, the EcoTarium offers discounted admission of $8 per person for groups of 10 or more.

Two ways to do an EcoTarium scout overnight:

  • Groups of 28 or more – Contact our reservations department to reserve space for your group on an available night of your choice. See our Night Journey page for more information.
  • Groups of 27 or fewer – Contact our reservations department to reserve space for your group in one of our scouts-only Night Out events.

How to book your scout overnight:

  • Estimate your group size and consider some possible dates.
  • Email us at reservations@ecotarium.org or call 508.929.2703 to find an available date and reserve space for your group. A $150 non-refundable deposit is required at booking. Many dates fill quickly, so we recommend groups reserve space early.
  • Final group size and remaining balance are due no later than one month prior to your overnight.
