The New England Air Museum offers an array of exciting programs for Scouts including overnights, day workshops, and group visits.
Scout Overnights feature open cockpit experiences in real aircraft, opportunities to meet aerospace engineers and pilots, hands-on activities, flight simulators, a film screening, and so much more! The $65 per person fee includes a buffet dinner, late-night snack, hot breakfast, and a New England Air Museum Overnight patch for all participants. Participants also receive a full day’s admission to the museum the day their Overnight ends, as well as half-price admission for immediate family members who join them that day.
Scout Overnights can accommodate up to 165 participants, and reservations are taken on a first-come, first-served basis with a $35 per person non-refundable deposit required to reserve a spot. Registration closes 30 days prior to the Overnight, or when the Overnight sells out, whichever occurs first. These popular events often sell out months in advance, so it's best to reserve early!
Stay tuned for updates about our Fall 2020-Spring 2021 Overnight Program!
