Cranbrook Institute of Science can help your Scouts discover more about the world around us through our engaging workshops.

Custom On-Site Workshops Now Available!

We’re offering small, in-person badge workshops for a select list of our most popular BSA and GSA programs! Unless otherwise noted, each workshop will fulfill all associated badge requirements during the session.

  • Bear Forensics - Scouts are responsible for completing Requirement 4 on their own
  • Brownie Bugs - Scouts will be sent home with supplies to complete Step 2 on their own
  • Brownie Hiker - Scouts should complete Step 4 in advance and bring their trail snack of choice to the workshop
  • Webelos Adventures in Science - Scouts are responsible for completing Requirement 1 on their own

Who? At this time, Scout workshops are limited to groups of 12 or fewer.
While total group size is currently 12, you are welcome to register up to 11 Scouts for any one session and are not limited to 6 Scouts and 6 adults.
Need more spots? Consider scheduling multiple workshops to meet the needs of your group’s roster. Your pack, den, or troop could schedule two workshops back-to-back on a Saturday afternoon, or schedule multiple workshops during one month.

When? Workshops are 45 minutes in length and are available on select Friday evenings, Saturdays, and Sundays. Contact us with your top dates and we can compare calendars: CISReservations@cranbrook.edu | 248 645.3210

How much? Custom workshops are $30/Scout. New this year: price includes 1 free participating adult with each Scout registration. In addition, the fee includes museum admission the day of the program for both the Scout and accompanying adult.
Refunds will not be available, though workshops credit will be issued for cancellations made 21 days or more prior to the start of the workshop.
Please contact our Reservations Office for changes to your registration. All credits must be used before April 2021.
