Open to Girl Scouts in grades 2–3 You have five senses that work together to let you see, hear, smell, taste, and touch the world around you. And you’re surrounded by science in your own home! Spend a day with us exploring these things and earn both the Senses and the Home Scientist badges. Be sure to bring a bag lunch as there is no food at the program. Both badges are included with this program.

If your idea of a museum is old and musty artifacts, think again! Spend a night at the Antique Boat Museum and discover another kind of artifact. Start with dinner overlooking the St. Lawrence river. After dinner make a craft, and then learn how to row a skiff. Next, take part in a museum scavenger hunt. Finally, see a movie before lights out! Bring your sleeping bag and a pillow—you can sleep in the museum or you can bring your own tent to pitch right on the grounds! Sunday morning wake up to the sounds of the St. Lawrence River and have breakfast before you leave. The museum will open at 9 a.m. so you can show your parents the collection of antique boats!
