GREAT IDEAS FOR DENS:


Space Center Houston Scout Camp-In

Space Center Houston engages Scouts in an interactive and hands-on learning environment. Scouts will have an enriched experience in our Camp-In that teaches Scouts about the science, technology, engineering and mathematics involved with space exploration. Each camp-in is tailored to the individual ages of the Scouts. The activities are badge-inspired, STEM-based and all about space!

Wolves, Bears, Webelos, and Arrow of Light Only. Check website for dates. Register for Space Center Houston Camp-In
