Home School and Scout Days

Participate in hands-on, interactive events designed specifically for your Scout troop or Home School student and family.


Our Home School Days complement curricula in science, social studies, language arts, and art! These special days accommodate children ages 4-14 with a range of ability levels and learning styles, while encouraging free-choice learning. You can also add ice skating to your day. The Schulz Museum offers two to four Home School Days a year, which also include ice skating at Snoopy’s Home Ice. See below for upcoming Home School Days.

Home school groups are also invited to visit the Museum for a field trip on the day and time of their choice. Field trips are designed for groups of 15-90 students. For more information, visit the School Field Trip page.

Scout Days are designed to support badge requirements in a fun, inquiry-based, hands-on environment. Upcoming Scout Days are listed below.
