Frequently Asked Questions

What is the minimum number required to book a camp-in?
We require a minimum of 10 scouts and 2 adults ($390.00) per program. If you do not have the minimum amount but another troop has already booked you can be added to their numbers.

·What time does the camp-in start and end?
Camp-in check-in is at 6:00 p.m. The camp-in is over at 10:00 a.m. the next day.

Do you provide dinner?
No. We provide a evening snack and breakfast the next morning.

Can we bring our own food?
No. If someone in your troop has a food allergy or medical reason that requires special dietary restrictions, please contact Parrish Crosby at least 2 weeks before the camp-in.

·My other child wants to attend. What is the cost for a sibling?
Siblings are charged $20.00 per person. All siblings must be of kindergarten age or older.

·We want to work on two badges, is that possible?
No, due to the time it takes to complete a badge we can only complete one a night.

Can an individual scout participate in the camp-in or does the whole troop need to participate?
Yes. If we have another troop booked and have room in the camp-in you can sign-up individually.

What do we need to bring?
Sleeping bag, toothbrush, other toiletries, and we recommend some kind of pad or air mattress.

Can I get a refund if someone cancels at the last minute?
A refund of 80% of the program cost will be given if you cancel 10 business days before the camp-in, no refunds will be given after that date.

Can I add scouts after the final payment has been made?
If there is room available and payment is received before the camp-in.

Are there other groups camping with us that night?
Yes. Scouts of the same level and type will be combined in the classroom portion
of the evening. During a camp-in there may be Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts and school groups present, but they sleep on different floors at night and use separate bathrooms.

Does the price include an IMAX?
Unfortunately, we do not include an IMAX in our camp-in. Many of the IMAX movies
at night are rated PG, PG-13 and they are not appropriate for all ages. If you would like to add a movie to your camp-in, contact Parrish Crosby to discuss your options.

Do you provide the badges, belt loops, pins, etc. that the scouts have earned?
We provide a VASC Camp-in patch but not the official scout awards.

Do members to the museum get a discount?
We do not offer member discounts on Group Events.

Who can do rockets?
We think that rockets are fun, really fun, so all Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Junior Girl Scouts and Cadette/Senior/Ambassador Girl Scouts can build rockets.
