Cub Scout Adventures! Satellite Programs
If your Den wants to do special programs, you don't have to come all the way to Base Camp! We have different Satellite locations in Gloucester, North Andover and Wakefield that run programming specific to each rank: Lions, Tigers, Wolves, Bears & Webelos. With the Adventure Card (which all cubs have) participating in satellite programs are free! Check out our programs and pick a location near you!
Museum of Science Overnights
An overnight at the Museum of Science is a special program that inspires children to discover science in fun and educational ways. Campers have an opportunity to sleep on the floors of the Museum Exhibit Halls and participate in activities after the Museum closes. A typical Overnight stay includes a variety of hands-on science activities, demonstrations, a Planetarium show, and Omni film, and time to explore the Museum with chaperones.
