Scouts

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

 

When planning your visit, be sure to check out our fun-filled educational sleepovers, specifically designed to help scouts work towards their badge requirements.

 

  • Scout groups of 28 or more are invited to book a private Night Journey, which allows them to select a date for their overnight.
  • Night Out events are pre-scheduled overnight opportunities for scouts who are unable to meet the 28-person minimum booking for a private event.
