Scout Camp Ins

Whether you are getting all the Pack families together, or organizing a retreat for all the Girl Scouts in your area, our custom Camp In programs will fill your night with fun, play, and plenty of STEM Learning.

Scout leaders can create a custom program selected from list of activities suited for mixed ages, or from a selection of short lab workshops that help fulfill badge and loop requirements. Your fee includes all programming, plus a late-night snack and bagel breakfast (with plenty of coffee!).

Scout leaders are responsible for making sure that adult chaperones comply with all rules and ratios outlined by Boy Scouts of America or Girl Scouts. Camp Ins are appropriate for participants age 6 and up.
