The DSC Loves Scouts!

Scout out some science fun at the Detroit Science Center! We offer camp-ins and workshops for scouts in several different badge areas. Scouts receive a badge, pin or other recognition for select workshops.

Check out our website for the many programs offered to scouts of all levels. There are additional programs for young scouts at the Detroit Children’s Museum. At the Detroit Children's Museum, we just installed a new display case in celebration of 100 years in scouting. We have a copy of the first ever Scoutmasters handbook, an Eagle scout patch and many more items.

This year (2010) is the 100th anniversary celebration of Scouting in the U.S.! In celebration, the Detroit Science Center will be attending the 2010 Centennial Rendezvous (a national jamboree-like experience) sponsored by the Great Lakes Council, the coordinating body for scouting in the tri-county area. The Science Center will be there on Saturday, September 25th, presenting science-based demonstrations and promoting our Scout programs for 2010/11. The objective of the Rendezvous is to instill values, leadership and character in each of the approximately 27,000 scouts in the Great Lakes Council area.

The 2010/11 scout program at the Detroit Science Center begins on Saturday, October 2nd, with a Cub Scout Academics belt loop program on weather. The highlight of the program will be a talk presented by WDIV-TV Local 4 weathercaster Andrew Humphrey.

If you know a scout group looking for some engaging workshops or camp-in, please contact our Manager of Scouts Programs and Outreach, Don Klaser at
