Camp overnight at the Virginia Living Museum! Participants will solve a “whodunnit” style mystery by engaging in hands-on activities which reveal clues throughout the evening. Can you figure out which suspect committed the crime by using science and your five senses? Scouts will also visit the Abbitt Observatory for some live stargazing (weather permitting), meet some live animals, and get to sleep in the Museum’s exhibits!

Brownie Girl Scouts will earn the Sense Badge during the event, while Junior Girl Scouts will earn the Detective Badge.  Note: Badges are not provided. There will also be a Swap Event during the Camp-in – the museum will provide information regarding the number of troops/scouts attending approximately 2 weeks before the camp-in date.

Cub scouts leaders may choose whether or not to apply certain activities towards merit awards.
