Cub Scouts

Adventure workshops and STEAM Night engage Scouts in science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM) related activities designed specifically for Cub Scouts. The Amazeum also offers workshops and events for Girl Scouts. Check out the FAQ Sheet for additional information.

Adventure Workshops 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are providing multiple options for Cub Scout workshops for Fall 2020: virtual and in-person at the Amazeum.  All workshops in January-April 2021 will be in person at Amazeum.  

Virtual:  Scouts will engage in a variety of unique, hands-on STEAM challenges and experiences from their homes. Materials for activities will be provided in kits. Kits can be picked up a week in advance from the Scout Shop. During the workshop, an Amazeum educator will lead the scouts through activities via Zoom video call. 

In-Person: Workshops will have a reduced capacity of 10 scouts and up to 4 leaders per workshop. Educators, scouts, and leaders will be required to wear face coverings during the workshop. Scouts will be given a kit that will include all supplies needed to complete their discoveries – no sharing required! After the program, Amazeum educators will clean and sanitize the kits.  

Pack Leaders: to register your pack for this Adventure workshop, contact the Amazeum reservation specialist at 479-268-4542 or reservations@amazeum.org. Advanced registration and payment required. Registration is now open for all workshops.   

Fee per Scout: $15 

Chaperones: 1 Pack Leader and 1 Co-Leader are free (Wolf, Bear, Webelos/Arrow of Light) 
                       1 adult Leader per Lion and Tiger Scout are free

Amazeum STEAM Zingo for Cub Scouts 

You've heard of bingo, but ZINGO has an Amazeum twist! Just like regular bingo, you need to complete five challenges in a row, column, or diagonal. But this is where it gets Amazeum-ified! We've come up with fun, community-based challenges for you to complete with your pack virtually, in the community, and at the Amazeum. Each square on your Zingo card is an activity, game or adventure. Zingo is self-paced and you have the whole month of April to complete it. You'll earn a special Amazeum whistle once you complete a Zingo! 

$10 program fee includes: digital Zingo card, one Amazeum whistle, admission for one Cub Scout and one adult to the Amazeum during regular museum hours during the month of April. 
Available for all Cub Scout levels
