Ritter Planetarium and Brooks Observatory

Scout Programs

Throughout the year, Ritter Planetarium offers specialized programs for Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and Cub Scouts. These programs not only assist scouts in completing astronomy requirements, but also inspire them to stargaze in the future.  


Our BSA programs are designed around merit badge requirements. Scouts will learn about the night sky, telescopes, celestial objects and more.  The Cub program is $10 per person (including adults) while the BSA program is $12 per person (including adults). 

Girl Scout Space Science Program

Our Girl Scout programs are designed around the new Astronomy badge requirements. Scouts will learn about the night sky, planets, the color spectrum, and more. Programs are available for each badge, but multi-level troops can be accomidated.  Daisies and Brownies are $10 per person (including adults) while Juniors, Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors are $12 per person (including adults).
