The Schuylkill Center offers guided scout programs for both Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts groups, designed for specific age groups and interests.  Our naturalists help scouts earn badges while exploring the Center’s 340 acres of natural area and four miles of hiking trails.

Choose from the Center’s array of Scouting Programs that includes 2-hour badge programs and various other offerings.  Create any combination of badge programs, service projects, night hikes and campfires!  Design a program to fit the interests of your troop.

Programs for all Scouts

Night Hikes – The Schuylkill Center trails are more fun after dark! Learn about our nocturnal residents and explore their habitats by flashlight or moonlight.

Campfires – Sing songs or tell stories around a campfire in our rustic pavilion. Roasting marshmallows and making s’mores is an added bonus!

Service Projects – There are many opportunities for individual Scouts or entire troops interested in service projects, including monitoring nest boxes, planting trees and habitat restoration. Combine service projects with a badge program and pizza party for a daylong event!
