Summer Scout Nights 2015

At eight inch telescope Inside 22 inch telescope Binocs Leo

Scout Nights are open to Boy & Girl Scout Troops only and are specially priced at $7/scout and scout leader .. these programs are not open to the general public. Families of scouts are strongly discouraged from attending these programs and are encouraged to attend one of our regularly scheduled Star Parties, instead. If necessary, family members may join a Scout Night but will be charged at the Center's private program rate of $20/person and will be counted against the limited number of passes available (that is, fewer actual scouts will be able to attend.)

NEW FOR 2015, to provide those attending the programs the best possible experience even on cloudy/rainy evenings, Scout Night reservations will be limited to 180 participants (scouts & scout leaders combined) per program.


If the evening you'd planned to participate is already sold out or does not have enough available passes to accommodate your troop, you may add your troop to the waiting list.

Troops attempting to participate without either a reservation or a wait-list request that has been approved earlier on the day of the program WILL BE TURNED AWAY! Please do not plan to just "show up" and expect to participate. The Visitors Center will be strictly adhering to this reservation and wait-list process.


Scout Night Behavior Expectations

YOU and your fellow leaders are responsible for your scouts' behavior at all times. Please have your scout leaders with your scouts at all times and particularly while they shop in the Gift Shop or eat in the Café. By making reservations, you are agreeing to abide by the following behavioral expectations:

Please share the above rules with each member of your troop.  It only takes poor behavior on the part of one scout to ruin the night for the entire group.

Only troops agreeing to the above will be permitted to remain at the program. By making reservations, you are agreeing to abide by these behavioral expectations.

A formatted PDF document of these expectations suitable for printing and distributing to your scouts and leaders is available via this link.
