Troop Trip - Both Boys and Girls!
Learn about ways to protect the environment and explore the Discovery Center at the same time! Schedule a “troop trip” that includes our Environmental Pathway! This self-guided scavenger hunt points participants to some of the many features of our LEED Gold Certified green building. From deciding between choices for packing zero-waste lunch, to exploring energy use of different types of lighting, your scouts will discover a number of environmental concepts, and be able to consider how to do some of the same things in their own homes! To schedule a trip, contact Hayley Budd, Program Facilitator, at least 7 days prior to trip date or 417-862-9910x726.
Groups of 12 or more paying participants who schedule in advance receive our group rate of $6 per person. Groups must have a ratio of 1 adult per 5 scouts. Request the Environmental Pathway Scavenger Hunt at the time of your reservation and we’ll have copies ready for you when you check in! (Best suited for scouts ages 8 and above.) Or, just bring your troop for a day of scientific exploration! With over 200 exhibits and 50,000 square feet to explore, you’re guaranteed to have a day filled with learning AND fun! Follow the same procedures as above for scheduling a troop trip!
The museum is also a perfect venue for a scouting outing! Bring a scout group on a field trip to explore the museum at your own pace! Groups of 12 or more paid admissions qualify for our group rate of $6 per person if reserved 7 days in advance or $7 per person walk up registration for groups of 12 or more. To reserve a group visit to DCS, contact Hayley Budd, Program Facilitator, at 417-862-9910x726.
