You’re not just a camper, but a pilot in training! Enjoy an evening with friends, take a tour of the Museum, and learn about aviation and space. Perform missions together side-by-side as teammates including hands-on projects that excite your youth and get them thinking! Our Overnight Programs are an exciting way for kids to have fun and learn about aviation, space exploration, or astronomy. Participants will tour the museum collection, experience hands-on activities, have a snack, watch a movie, and maybe even sleep in a *C-119 aircraft!
We offer a variety of Overnights geared for different types of groups. We have Overnights built just for Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts, and non-scout groups too. We will also work with you to create a customized Overnight to suit your needs.
If you are interested please call the Education Department at 402.944.3100 x209.
Overnight Policy: The Museum requires a minimum of 75 youth (combined from all groups) and has a limit of 150 youth for an overnight. A 5-to-1 youth to adult ratio is required. Call the Museum with your group information and the date you would prefer and we will work to help fill the minimum. The cost per youth is $25 for regular overnights (except scouts for merit badge programs; $32 for Boy or Girl Scouts, $25 for cub scouts); cost per adult is $15. The Museum reserves the right to cancel any overnight that doesn’t meet the minimum. All of our programs are safe, supervised, and highly educational.
