Scout Programs

Build confidence, leadership, and outdoor skills in the Backcountry! The Backcountry Wilderness Area provides close-to-home opportunities for exploration, observation, and creation in the natural world. Our Scout programs are tailored to meet the activity and badge requirements for troops. We are happy to work with you on specific needs for your troop, including any additional badge and Journey opportunities.
