Evening Programs

For Scouts and Guides, the Johnson Geo Centre has a range of evening visits that can fit the time frame of your regular scheduled group meetings.

Evening visits can be scheduled any time from 5:30 pm to 8:00 pm from Monday to Thursday and are generally 60–90 minutes in duration.

Troops can choose the type of activity that best suits their group’s interests. Plus, by changing the activities for each visit, they can visit again and again and find something new every time.

Troops can:

  • Explore our fun and educational exhibit halls;
  • Receive a specialized guided talk or tour by a knowledgeable science interpreter;
  • Participate in a super science activity
