Scouting at The Schiele

Scouting at The Schiele

Scouts can experience an exciting after-hours event at the Schiele Museum!

Your troop or group can explore the museum all evening, or even spend the night! Scouting at The Schiele offers after-hours programs that are perfect for helping scouts complete badge or pin requirements. They also provide enrichment opportunities for groups who want to experience nature, science, and culture.

Each after-hours event includes interactive activities, museum exploration, evening snacks, and breakfast (for those who spend the night). 

Every participant earns a Schiele Camp patch!

Registration is required.

Overnight Camp-In

Spread your sleeping bags in the museum exhibit galleries and sleep surrounded by wild animals, dinosaurs, or Native American Indian chiefs!

During the evening, enjoy activities like a Meet the Animals program or a planetarium show, then explore the museum exhibits.  On Saturday morning, explore The Farm, see the Catawba Village, and enjoy the Nature Trail. Camp-In includes an evening snack, breakfast, and a museum patch for each participant.
