 Important Program Information


Scoop on Poop Overnights

Join us as we discuss some interesting information about the subject of poop. You’ll learn some fun fecal facts and have the opportunity to touch some dried out droppings. Wanna know how long it would take for an elephant to digest you? (If they ate meat of course.) Come get the Scoop on Poop during this scat-tastic overnight adventure.

Scout Overnights

Badge Wild Winks include everything in the general program, plus participants will complete badge requirements.

Badge programs offered:

  • Cub Scouts – Conservation Belt Loop and Academic Pin
  • Girl Scouts – Night Owl Badge for Cadettes

In designated Girl Scout overnights, siblings or participants of the opposite gender are permitted to spend the night but will be required to sleep in a location separate from the female participants.
