Scout Badges for Girl and Cub Scout Troops Offered March through October at Gibson Woods

Scout leaders looking for fun and exciting ways for troop members to earn badges may make reservations at Gibson Woods Nature Preserve. A park naturalist will guide participants in exploring the wonderful world of nature. Our “Into the Woods” presentation can be tailored to fill several badge requirements for nature related badges (badge not included in program). For more information on program content please call Gibson Woods at 219-844-3188

Troop Registration: Badge programming is $2 per person, including adults, with a $20 minimum and a 30 person maximum.
Workshops are offered on Wednesdays and Thursdays 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. March through October. To register, call the park department office at 219-769-PARK. Groups must register at least two weeks in advance. Only one badge will be presented per workshop.

SCOUTS AT DEEP RIVER COUNTY PARK: “Build-Your-Own Scout Experience” as you meet requirements towards earning badges regarding nature and history.
