Nature Retreat for Little Scouts and Friends


Do you have a child looking for a fun summer activity? Search no further! Valley Crest will host a Nature Retreat this summer designed especially for young scouts and their friends. All children (whether they are scouts or not) are invited to have some summer fun on the farm. Each day children will hike, play games, craft, learn about nature and make new memories! Scouts will complete all requirements for a badge appropriate to their scouting level each day. That's right! By the end of your scout's retreat week they will come home with five new badges!

Scouts will complete the following badges during their week at Valley Crest:

Daisy Petals- Rosie, Mari, Clover, Lupe and Gloria

Brownies- Senses, Bugs, Hiker, Letterboxer and Household Elf badges.

Juniors- Animal Habitats, Drawing, Flowers, Simple Meals and Outdoor Art Explorer.
