Overnight Camps

Spend a night at the museum and snooze under the SR-71 Blackbird! Grab your sleeping bag and land under the SR-71B Blackbird because you're in for an overnight adventure!

Our Overnight Camps are designed to give you an after-hours experience like no other! Choose from a space or aviation theme! Our Overnight Camps include:

  • A glider (aviation theme) or a model rocket (space theme) for each person
  • A scavenger hunt
  • A tour of the museum
  • Free time to explore the museum prior to the Overnight -or- after the Overnight
  • Pizza and pop for dinner
  • A snack and juice for snack time
  • Cereal, a pastry and juice for breakfast

Plus, kids will receive a special Air Zoo Overnight Camp patch!

The Overnight Camp programs are designed to meet a number of requirements for both the Boy Scout Aviation and Space Exploration merit badges. Our camps also meet certain elective requirements for Cub Scouts and Girl Scouts (leaders are responsible for recording applicable accomplishments).

Student Overnights can also be adapted to work with your curriculum.

Please download our overnight information packet for more information, including FAQs, rules and what to bring!
