Scout Day Structure

8 a.m.: Check-in Opens
8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.: Programs and Activities
1 p.m. to 5 p.m.: Merit Badge Counseling (Boy Scout Days Only)*

At the National Constitution Center’s Scout Days, scouts and their leaders will participate in a wide variety of activities throughout the museum. Activities include both independent museum exploration as well as programs led by our staff, including games, tours, and workshops. Most activities last about 30 minutes.

Every group will receive a customized agenda, which will serve as their “cheat sheet” for the day. Each scout will also receive a Scout Day Activity Packet, designed to guide them through their experience and help them accomplish their badge requirements. 

The customized agendas will list the times and locations of each activity, the page in the Scout Day Activity Packet that each activity corresponds with, and the badge requirements the scouts will be accomplishing.

Group leaders are responsible for guiding the scouts from one activity to another.

For more information, please visit our Frequently Asked Questions page.

*Scouts BSA: After they have participated in the day’s activities, Scouts BSA scouts have the option of meeting with a National Constitution Center Merit Badge Counselor, who can recap the programs and sign Blue Cards. Scouts should click here for important information about our Merit Badge counseling process. Please be aware that we have a limited number of Merit Badge Counselors; if you wish to meet with one of our counselors there may be an extensive wait. This step is not necessary for Cub Scouts or Girl Scouts of the USA.
