Scout Programs

Do you need help meeting the requirements of a nature-themed badge? Look no further than White Memorial Conservation Center. Programs last up to 1½ hours and cost $115 (25 people maximum). This cost also includes free admission into our Nature Museum. Programs take place either in White Memorial’s classroom or out on our 4,000 acre property. During a guided scout program at White Memorial, you can complete the minimum requirements for the following awards:


  • Bear Scouts – Sharing Your World with Wildlife
  • Cub Scout Academic Awards – Wildlife Conservation Belt Loop or Pin, Geology Belt Loop, Hiking Belt Loop and/or Pin
  • Webelos Activity Badges – Geologist, Naturalist, Forester
  • Conservation Good Turn Award – we can work together to develop a project for your group


  • Daisies – Clover (Use Resources Wisely)
  • Brownies – Hiker, Bugs, Senses
  • Juniors – Animal Habitats
  • Cadettes – Night Owl, Trees

We can also conduct a program that fulfills any one aspect of a nature-related scout requirement. Examples include:

  • Learn 7 trail signs (Hiking Pin)
  • Participate in a nature hike (Outdoor Activity Award)
  • Keep a checklist of birds on a field trip (Bird Study Merit Badge)
  • Take a hike and make a leaf rubbing (Tiger Scouts – Let’s Go Outdoors)
  • Identify 5 different kinds of fish (Wolf Scouts – Fishing Elective and World Conservation Award)

Just ask how we can design a program to meet your needs.

Feel free to also peruse the many other group programs we can offer, from guided hikes to live animal demonstrations to Pond Prowls, and more. Why not turn your field trip to White Memorial into an overnight adventure? Camping for scout groups and other non-profits is available at White Memorial’s Pine Grove Campgrounds at no charge! Reservations are required, however.
