The Air Zoo does not have the badges, but each participating scout will receive an Air Zoo fun patch! Every registrant also receives a wrist band so that they can explore the exhibits and rides after the program is over. Participants may bring in their own lunches or plan to purchase lunch from the Kitty Hawk Cafe.

Options for troops

Scouting Ovenights at the Air Zoo!

Grab your sleeping bag and land under the SR-71B Blackbird, because you’re in for an overnight adventure! Our Overnights are designed to give you an after-hours experience like no other. Choose from three available themes:

Super Sleuths

Do you have what it takes to investigate a crime scene and figure out “who dunnit?” Put your all of your senses and scientific skills to the test in finding clues, examining fingerprints and “blood” splatter, and breaking secret codes to solve a puzzling crime.

Rocketry

Gain a working knowledge of physical forces and Newton’s Laws of Motion through racing the force of gravity, creating real-life action/reaction scenarios, and building and launching (weather permitting) your own re-usable model rockets.

Aviation

Explore the science and history of aviation during this exciting hands-on experience. Young aviators experiment with the four forces of flight and learn about the dynamics of airplane flight while building take-home gliders.

Book your troop’s private overnight by contacting Events@AirZoo.org or (269) 350-2848!
