Scouting programs are ongoing throughout the year and give scouts an opportunity to complete nature-related badges, achievements or journeys. All or most requirements are met during these sessions. These programs can be attended by individual scouts or troops.
Girl Scout Juniors | Geocacher
Juniors will meet a geocacher who will get them started on learning all about how to use a GPS receiver to go on or set up a geocache hunt. They will each make a trade item, go on a geocaching adventure and discover travel bugs. It is not mandatory but if available, bring a smart phone or GPS unit to help facilitate learning.
