The Academy is a terrific place for Scouts! We offer exciting activity days, popular Safari Overnight sleepovers, and interactive daytime workshops designed to help scouts earn badges. In addition to scheduled programs, private workshops can be scheduled for scout groups of 20–30, and private overnights can be arranged for groups of 100–300. Check out specific programs below. We look forward to seeing you at the Academy!
