2022-2023 Programs

Boy Scouts at the Air ZooSuper Science Saturdays 

During the Air Zoo’s Super Science Saturdays, Cub Scouts complete many of the requirements for one or more Elective Adventure Loops and Webelo Adventure Pins in one exciting day! Each Super Science Saturday is tailored for a particular Cub Scout level. Other children may attend with the Cub Scout, but must be accompanied by an adult. The Air Zoo does not have the Adventure Loops and Pins, 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. For full day programs participants may bring in their own lunches or plan to purchase lunch from the Kitty Hawk Café (prepaid at registration). View our Cub Scouts & Scouts BSA guide here.

For details or questions regarding any of our scouting opportunities, contact our Events Department via email or phone at 269.350.2848!  Each troop must have a minimum of one adult present.
