Scout Programs

Contact us today to schedule a visit with your troop!

We are excited to offer all included programs for your troop! Below are the initial programs we will offer at the Arboretum, however if your group has special needs or interests do not hesitate to let us know and we can create the best program for you. We have many other opportunities at the Arboretum as well including volunteer work, Eagle Scout projects, Gold Award projects, and space to hold meetings. All programs have a minimum of 10 scouts, consider joining another troop if you have only a few members.

Orienteering 

Learn about using a compass and map before setting off in the Arboretum to find ten stations with flags and punches. This is a fun way to get active as a troop. Depending on the scouts level will change the difficulty of the course. This program is about 2 hours long and can be offered weekdays during the spring and fall and only on weekends in the summer.

Investment: $10 per scout

Hike and Campfire

Come to the Arboretum for a guided hike to learn about native plants and signs of wildlife. After enjoy a campfire with smore’s! The more singing, the better! Ideally this would be an evening program depending on sunset. This is a 1 and a half hour program.

Investment: $5 per scout

 

Girl Scout Badge Workshop

Join us for a half day badge workshop where every girl will complete the requirements to earn a badge. Everything will be taken care of for the leader, so you can just show up. This program is about 4 hours and only offered on weekends. Some examples of badges we can run are below.

Brownie: Hiker, Bugs, Household Elf, Senses
Junior: Gardener, Animal Habitats, Flowers, Camper
Cadette: Trailblazing, Trees

Investment: $15 per girl
