Join us for a Scout Thursday to earn badges! Workshops are booked on a first come, first serve basis. The first group booked on any given day will choose the workshop for that date (see above for dates and workshops booked). Workshops must have at least 10 participants registered two weeks before the workshop date, or the workshop will be canceled. Workshops do not include actual badge patches.
All workshops are $15 per participant and include a Museum admission pass to be used at a later date.

1 adult chaperone must be present for every 1 to 6 children per reservation. Workshop chaperones are free.
Supervision & safety
The supervision and safety of all children is the responsibility of their chaperones. Children must be accompanied by their chaperone at all times.
The fee listed for each program is per child. Any extra children, such as siblings, will be counted as participants and are subject to the program fee.
Limited spots available
Reservations are not complete until you receive a confirmation letter and The Building for Kids receives any applicable deposit. Reservations are honored in the order that they are completed.
