Scout Groups

Boyscout Club Scout Program

Want some help earning badges? Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Cub Scouts are encouraged to call our office to schedule a custom program that meets your Scout level and requirements. The Ney Nature Center also allows for Scout groups to camp on site. Below is a list of programs we can offer. We have the potential to develop other topics upon request. Click here to view our Group Program Cancellation Policy.

Contact the Ney Nature Center for more information about cost, camping, and to schedule a program.

COVID19 Communications with Groups/Field Trips:

Please note due to COVID19 we conduct the full program outside, the staff wears masks at all times and we request participants and chaperones wear masks. Masks are required to enter the building for the flush bathrooms, there is a porta-potty on site if masks cannot be worn for whatever reason. We have installed an outside hand washing station, we remind participants to physically distance, we don’t have participants share equipment if possible. If the equipment is shared it is sanitized between use. We also use a google form for participants (or their adult) and chaperones to fill out the health check survey the day of their program, asking about fever, exposure, and such.
