Scout Programs at METC

  COVID-19 Policies

METC is currently offering in-person scout programs either outside on the Museum’s lawn (weather-permitting) or in the METC Education Annex, a large open space allowing scouts to be socially distanced throughout the program. The safety of participating scouts, chaperones and staff is our top priority. Please see the link below for our COVID-19 Youth Program Policies. Please reach out to the METC Education Department at or 973-377-2982 ext. 12 with questions or to book a program.

The museum staff has developed a number of programs for cub scouts and girl scouts that fulfill all or part of different badges. These hands-on programs take advantage of our collection and offer a historical perspective on the history, art, science and citizenship aspects of scouting. These programs can be scheduled year-round and can be adapted for your troop’s needs. The links below lead to the program offerings for each rank.
