Scouts at Chabot
Chabot Scout activities take Boy and Girl Scouts from Earth into the great unknown! Through workshops, telescope viewing and planetarium shows, your Scouts will have the opportunity to expand their knowledge of space and science while earning their badge or patch. Our custom workshops will teach scouts how to navigate the nights sky, the evolution of our solar system, explore nature, and ultimately provide a better understanding of the relationship between us and the universe. This is an adventure your troop won't soon forget.

What Scouts are Saying
"Everyone raved about the program, the exhibits, and the telescope viewing. After such a great experience we will definitely do another sleep-over odyssey event at Chabot in the future."
"Both the boys (cub scouts) and all the parents that attended enjoyed it tremendously, and we'll encourage other packs to take advantage of the program that Chabot offers to groups."
"Our pack enjoyed the trip immensely. Thank you for your hospitality and instruction."
