Tours, Programs and Badge/Patch Workshops for Scouts of All Ages!
The Hiller Aviation Museum is pleased to provide aviation-themed experiences to Scouts of all ages. Tours and short hands-on programs may be scheduled for troops or packs, and more extensive full-day programs meeting Boy Scout Merit Badge and Girl Scout Interest Patch requirements are available for both individual Scouts and qualified groups.
- Group Tours provide groups of 12 or more Scouts and their adult leaders with an after-school or weekend field trip experience of 1-3 hours. Admission includes a guided tour, and an additional hands-on program may be added.
- Boy Scout Merit Badge Programs are intensive, all-day programs for Boy Scouts Grades 5 and up that allow the Scout to complete all requirements for the Aviation or Weather Merit Badge. Individual Scouts or small groups of Scouts from the same Troop may join one of the many open enrollment dates offered throughout the year, and Troops of 12 or more can make a special reservation for additional dates. All registrations are handled through the Hiller Aviation Museum.
- Girl Scout Programs provide Juniors (Grades 4-5), Cadettes (Grades 6-8) and Seniors (Grades 9-10) with an intensive, hands-on aviation experience. Juniors receive a special Hiller Museum patch, and Cadettes and Seniors earn the Aviation Interest Patch while completing requirements for the Sky badge.
- Scout Saturdays are special days during which Scouts in uniform are admitted free of charge, and former Scouts make presentations on their careers in aviation. Scout Saturdays for 2013-2014 are September 21st, November 9th and January 11th.
