Scout BSA Geocaching & Geology Camporee

Join scouts from PA and surrounding states to earn one or two merit badges and enjoy a weekend of camping.


Scout BSA Geocaching & Geology Camporee

Two days of learning and hands-on fun specifically designed to fulfill the Geocaching & Geology Merit Badges.  On Saturday, scouts will attend workshops to complete the requirements for the Geocaching Merit Badge. Scouts will learn about navigating with a GPS and a compass, discuss rules of geocaching, and make a CITO craft to take home.  Saturday evening, engage in a pre-tour presentation about cave conservation, cave formation, and cave life. Then descend into the cave for an evening flashlight tour, through two beautiful crystal caverns. On Sunday, scouts will attend workshops to complete the requirements for the Geology Merit Badge.  Scouts will learn about rocks & minerals, fossils, mineral resources, and career opportunities in the field of geology.  Each scout will get both a rock & fossil collection to take home.  Your weekend includes two nights camping, lunch both days, two days of workshops, rock and fossil collections, a CITO craft, plus evening flashlight cavern tours.  One day/one night option is also available. 

Pre-registration is required.   Deposit accepted at the time of registration, with balance due two weeks prior to the event date.  For more information about this event and other scout programs, please visit our Scout Leader Area.
