Badge Programs

Pringle Nature Center offers private badge programs for Girl and Boy Scouts, both as pre-scheduled Scouts Days and by request. Most badge programs are $5/Scout with a $50 minimum, no charge for chaperones, and are 1.5-2 hours in length. Badge patches are not included. It is unlikely that badge programs may be scheduled outside of our regular business hours (9 am-4 pm, Tuesday-Saturday). Some badge programs are season-dependent and not offered year-round.
