Family Pioneering Day at the Science Museum of Long Island

10:00am to 11:30am ET
5+ (children under age 7 must be accompanied by an adult)
$20 for non-members

Work together to survive in the great outdoors! Head to the preserve and explore the essentials to roughing it in the wild: shelter building and making a fire.


First, meet in the museum for a quick crash course. Learn the many types of survival shelters and the dos-and-don'ts of building them, then explore what you'll need for an effective fire and how to choose the right one for your purposes.

With some new information under your belt, venture out to the preserve to put your new skills to the test!
