Scouting: Girl Scout Programs

Girl Scout Activities at the Air Zoo!

Earn badges and awards! Register for scheduled Saturday events or schedule your own private event! 

Super Science Saturdays
During the Air Zoo's Super Science Saturdays, Girl Scouts complete the requirements for one or more badges in one exciting day! Each Super Science Saturday is tailored for a particular Girl Scout level. Other children may attend with the Girl Scout, but must be accompanied by an adult. The Air Zoo does not have the badges, but each participating scout will receive an Air Zoo fun patch! Every registrant also receives a wrist band so that they can explore the exhibits and rides after the program is over. Participants may bring in their own lunches or purchase lunch from the Kitty Hawk Cafe. See upcoming Super Science Saturday programs below. 

In addition to our scheduled scouting activities, an event can be customized for your pack or troop! For details or questions regarding any of our scouting activities, contact our Events Department via email at Events@airzoo.org, or via telephone at 269-350-2848!
