Scout Adventures for Girl Scouts & Boy Scouts

Enjoy exciting, educational opportunities exclusively for Girl Scouts & Boy Scouts at Port Discovery Children’s Museum! Book now to receive private museum free play that includes three floors of hands-on exhibits and unique programming and activities designed just for scouts!

Scout Adventures are great for Daisy, Brownie, Junior and Cadette Girl Scouts and Cub Scouts & Boy Scouts


Using special gloves, uniquely designed bubble solutions, and a Port Discovery adapted fog blower, scouts will catch fog-filled bubbles and pass them from hand to hand while learning about the surface tension that makes all bubbles round and the iridescence that gives them their beautiful colors.


In this hands-on experience, scouts will explore how forensic chemists solve crimes. Someone has stolen our cookies, and the daring thief left behind a note that read “ Haha! I took the cookies!” By using markers, water filter paper, and chromatography, scouts will use forensic chemistry to figure out which pen wrote the note to solve the mystery.t.


In this program, students will learn how coding and robotics can be used to solve real world problems, and see technology and engineering as something they can do themselves! This program debunks stereotypes, while fostering self-agency and social-emotional learning, and provides endless opportunities for risk taking, problem solving, goal setting, storytelling, and team work
