Scout BSA Mammal Study & Geocaching Camporee

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

Scout BSA Mammal Study & Geocaching Camporee

Saturday, work toward earning the Mammal Study Merit Badge through hands-on workshops learning all about bats as mammals. Discuss the importance of bats in ecosystems where they live, and each troop will build a bat house to put up in their community.  Saturday evening, engage in a pre-tour presentation about cave conservation, cave formation, and cave life.  Then descend into the cave for an evening Dark Zone tour with blacklights and flashlights, through two beautiful crystal caverns.  On Sunday, rotate your thinking towards geocaching - scouts will engage in activities to learn the use of a GPS unit, learn the importance of compass skills when geocaching, and head outside on their own geocache hunt. One day/one night options 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.
