Cub Scout Programs
"I was overly impressed with the entire program & facility. Our staff person was excellent. She kept the boys engaged and made the presentation fun & enjoyable." - Scout Leader
"Boys had a great time, am looking to come back to do another one." - Scout Leader
Come to the Oakes Museum of Natural History for a fun-filled learning experience and let our trained staff help your troop meet badge requirements! Our programs last 2 hours and supplies are provided. We do not provide any of the badges, belt loops or pins.
We are in the process of updating our programs to reflect the new Cub Scout requirements. This should be done by mid-September. Please contact us with any questions, firstname.lastname@example.org.
* American Indian Lore - See some of the museum's Native American artifacts and make an instrument.
(These two can both be completed in the timeframe.)
*American Indian Life - Learn about the Native Americans who lived in Pennsylvania, what games they would have played, and make a model of a typical shelter.
* Forester Badge - Be ready to hike through the forest learning about the trees found there and how they grow.
Girl Scouts are encouraged to contact us to ask how we can help you meet a badge requirement! We offer insect, animal, geology, and museum discovery programs for girl scout troops.
