Girl Scout Junior Event Combo - Going Batty & Geocacher Badges

Fly into spring by learning about our nocturnal friends and engaging in the new sport of geocaching!

Girl Scout Junior Event Combo - Going Batty & Geocacher Badges

Go Batty with us this spring, learning about geocaching and bats at the same time. Meet the requirements to earn the Geocacher Badge & Going Batty Patch. During your fun-filled visit, learn to use geo-slang, track a Travel Bug, make trade items, and go on a scout themed geocaching hunt.  Girls will also learn how to use a GPS unit and find coordinates.  Learn about the importance of bats in ecosystems where they live. Play a game, create a poster, and make a craft that will help remind scouts and others, to be good neighbors to bats everywhere. Each troop will build a bat house to put up in their community. This event includes a presentation about cave conservation, cave animals, and cavern formation. The highlight of your trip will be touring TWO beautiful crystal caverns. Sleeping accommodations are slumber party style in the visitor's center.

Pre-registration is required and payment in full is due with registration. For more information about the Girl Scout Junior Badge Combos or to find out about our other scout programs, visit the Scout Leader Area.
