Session Information

The registration materials are ready and we are looking forward to Youth in the Outdoors 2018. All kids are welcome to participate.

We know that many of you like to bring your scout groups out so we have aligned our activities with with the Girl and Boy Scout requirements to the best of our ability. You will notice after each brief activity description a list of possible badge, patch, or achievements related to each organization. This is to help you plan your trip better and hopefully help your scouts meet the requirements for each badge. We can't meet all the requirements for a badge during our programs, but with a little planning you should be able to help your scouts earn their patches.

Below you will find the registration materials as well as a photo permission. If you could have parents sign this form before arriving at the Refuge it would be greatly appreciated. We love to use photos we take during the day but we need permission from parents to do so.
