Scouting Programs

Calling all troop leaders!

Day and night, we have lots of activites for Scouts to explore at the Seaport Museum. Perfect for Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts or Girl Scouts, our Seaport Slumbers and day programs all you to work towards a loop or badge, get out on the Delaware River, explore National Historic Landmark Ships Cruiser Olympia and Submarine Becuna, connect with our exhibits and more. 

Our scouting programs include: 

Finding Your Way (Cub Scouts) 
Gain a navigation loop when completing fun activities. Learn about maps, including how to draw a compass rose and a map to scale. Take on a scavenger hunt in the Museum with your troop by only using a compass to guide your way. Earn a "Finding Your Way" adventure loop during this overnight program. 

Playing the Past (Girl Scouts) 
Go back in history and discover what it was like to be an immigrant arriving to Philadelphia at the turn of the century. Learn about the hardships of what it was like traveling to a new world with family when coming to America. 

Signs, Signals and Codes (Boy Scouts) 
Learn how to use visual communication through Morse code, signal flags and more. 

Wonders of the Water (Girl Scouts) 
Learn about healthy waterways and investigate the impact that humans have on marine habitats, and solutions to help. Strategies will be learned that can be passed on to friends and communities making any Girl Scout of this program an ambassador of clean and healthy waterways. 

Woodworker (Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts) 
Experience what it's like to work in our very own Workshop on the Water. Learn all the basics to woodworking while creating your own toolbox. This day program works towards the Boy Scouts woodworking merit badge or the Cub Scouts Baloo the Builder Adventure Loop. This day program is also available for Girl Scouts.
