Girl Scout Overnight Programs

We are excited to offer our popular Girl Scout Overnight programs again this fall!  Join us for an exciting weekend of badges, s’mores, and crafts at the Outdoor Education Center!  Troops will work on completing two badges and will share songs, skits, and stories at the campfire!  Troops will be housed together in a heated cabin and meals will be provided in the Dining Hall. Gather your troop and get ready for two days of badges and fun!

Scout Overnight Registration 

Registration opens in late summer/early fall for troop leaders/representatives to reserve a cabin for their troop. A deposit of $25 is due at the time of registration and reserves 1 cabin, sleeping a maximum of 20 people. If your troop requires more than 20 beds, you must make two separate reservations. A minimum of 6 scouts and 1 adult is required to make a reservation. Troop leaders will send out registration information after a cabin has been reserved for your troop.

Scout Badge Opportunities

We offer badge programs by appointment for Girl Scouts and Cub Scouts. Badge programs focus on outdoor education skills and activities. Programs are customizable and many can be adapted to fit your troop’s needs. Appointments are scheduled on a first come, first serve basis and availability depends on the Outdoor Education Center schedule. Register online or call 636-458-3048. There is a minimum of 5 scouts to reserve a program.
