Cub Scout Free Visits
Any age Cub Scout (Bobcat through Arrow of Light) and pack leaders are eligible for free admission to the Lancaster Science Factory! To reserve your group visit please download our Scout Reservation Request Form. Completed forms may be sent to Whitney Lupton at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Individual scouts do not require reservation. Additional parents and/or siblings are admitted at the group rate.
Cub Scout Commemorative Science Patch
Cub Scouts may also earn the Lancaster Science Factory Commemorative Science Patch during their visit. Scouts are given an activity guide that directs them to complete certain tasks and answer questions about certain exhibits in the Hall of Science. Adult answer guides are available upon request. When all requirements are met the activity guide can be turned in to the front desk to receive the commemorative patch. Most groups can complete the patch within their regular two-hour visit and still have time to explore and enjoy the rest of the Lancaster Science Factory. The cost for this program is $3 per scout, which covers the activity guide and the patch.
Webelos Engineer Adventure Workshop – Second Saturday Scout Nights
The Second Saturday of every month, from 2-6pm, the Lancaster Science Factory offers Webelos a chance to earn the Engineering Adventure Pin. The pin requirements are set by the Boy Scouts of America and are quite challenging!
The program generally takes 4 hours of work to complete. During that time, scouts are engaged in several hands-on activities as they complete the requirements for the pin. Scouts receive their pins and the Den Leader also receives the Webelos Activity Badge Cards. Leaders are responsible for filling out the Advancement Report for their scouts.
The Engineering Adventure program requires advance registration by a scout leader. The price is $10 per scout which includes all materials, instruction, and cost of the pin.
Scout groups with at least 30 guests can choose to extend their visit to the Science Factory overnight. Please visit the Overnight page for details and cost of overnight programming!
Our sincere thanks to the Arnold Family Foundation for generously sponsoring Cub Scout Programming at the Lancaster Science Factory.
