Boy Scout Mammal Study & Geology Winter Camporee

Come out of hibernation!


Boy Scout Mammal Study & Geology Winter Camporee

Two days of learning and hands-on fun specifically designed to fulfill Mammal Study & Geology Merit Badge requirements.  Saturday, work toward earning the Mammal Study Merit Badge.  Discuss the importance of bats in the mammal world and to the ecosystems they live in, learn about bat families and species, and each troop builds 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 flashlight tour, through two beautiful crystal caverns.  On Sunday, boys will attend workshops to complete the requirements for the Geology Merit Badge. Boys will learn about rocks & minerals, fossils, mineral resources, and career opportunities in the field of geology.  Each boy will get both a rock & fossil collection to take home.   Sleeping accommodations are slumber party style in the visitor’s center. Includes two nights lodging, lunch both days, rock & fossil collections for each boy, a bat house for each troop, and flashlight cavern tours.  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.
