Scout Merit Badge Program

For many years, Discovery Hall Programs educators have worked with scout groups and conducted activities that have allowed troops to complete specific merit badges, awards, pin, or journey requirements.

Our badge workshops focus on science, nature, environmental or STEM-themed activities. Whether it is studying oceanography, being a citizen scientist, kayaking, using GPS technology, building an underwater robot, or career exploration, we bring our hands-on approach, facilities, equipment, and expertise to making Scout workshops an authentic and high-quality experience.

Assuming availability, Scouts can be housed and fed here at the Dauphin Island Sea Lab or can stay in the campground or elsewhere on the island and participate in activities during the day.

To book a field trip to DISL, to inquire about the availability of dates, or simply to get additional information about this or our other programs, please contact Scheduling Coordinator Jennifer Latour at or by phone at (251) 861-2141 x7511.

For scheduling reasons, we do not currently offer Scout workshops during our Summer program (June - August).
