Scout Troop or Pack Overnight
This overnight program includes a guided hike on our nature trails and a nighttime campfire complete with s’mores.

Troops can choose to sleep inside the Nature Center, or bring tents to overnight in the great outdoors. We encourage small groups to join together and share your overnight experience to make it more cost effective.
