Scouts and Youth Leaders

Find numerous events for scouts of all ages, like outdoor exploration, badge programs, overnight stays, and more. Scouts can fulfill badge requirements and personal interests by attending one of the many scheduled scout programs. They can also develop an understanding of science, the natural world, history, agriculture, art and learn new life-long recreation skills. Program topics include archery, orienteering, survival, and more.
