Get your badges here! The IMAG is now offering workshops on the weekends for you and your troop! Please click on your title of the workshop in the table below to register. Descriptions, pricing, and pre-requisites are below. Can’t make the workshop date? Request a private workshop for your troop with the link below! Scout Camp-Ins are also now available! Scroll below for dates.

Please note: All workshops are led by one instructor and space in the classrooms is limited. Due to the intensity of the curriculum and badge requirements, the instructor will need to exclusively focus on leading the activities. Scouts must have an adult present in the classroom during the workshop. For siblings or groups of scouts, one adult may be the designee for up to 10 students, but the designated adult must take full responsibility for accompanying the scout(s) to the restroom or assisting the scout as needed. Sibling attendance is not recommended due to space constraints. Should you need to bring additional children, you will need to designate an adult to accompany and assist your scout or bring another adult to visit the IMAG with your other children (admission fees apply). As a public facility, all children must be accompanied by an adult at all times throughout the museum grounds to ensure the safety and security of all children and guests. Thank you for your understanding and compliance to offer all scouts an optimal learning experience.
