Badge Workshops

The Children’s Museum of Virginia offers an exciting location and passionate educators that will lead workshops to help your troop earn badges or patches*. The cost is $12.00 per scout, with every five scouts; one chaperone is required and admitted free. Your workshop fees include admission to the Children’s Museum, so you can explore the Museum after the workshop is complete. Badge workshops must be booked at least one month in advance. A 50% deposit is required at the time of registration. No refunds will be issued if canceled less than two weeks before the program date. We do not permit tag-a- longs; additional parents and siblings can pay the General Admission rate and enjoy the Museum while they await those attending the workshop.
