Custom Scout Program Packages now available!

Join us for an adventurous day, weekend, or week at Trees For Tomorrow of having fun in the outdoors while working towards badges, patches, or pins. Get to know other scouts, go fishing, catch critters, learn about reptiles, learn how to survive, and much more! Lodging available or bring a tent. Cook over a campfire and/or enjoy a home-cooked meal in our historic dining hall. Custom programs available to all scout groups young and old, male or female!

 

"I think that they (other scouts) should come to learn about things and have fun in the things that we did, like the Bog walk, or telemetry, or the group activities. This was fun!" - Girl Scout participant, July 2013.

"I think it would be fun for other troops to come because if they did not know a lot about nature, they would learn a lot." - Girl Scout participant, July 2013.

"So many different things the scouts can choose from that they may not be able to do at home." - Girl Scout leader/parent participant, July 2013.

The best part of the weekend at Trees For Tomorrow was "the enthusiastic staff - very knowledgable. The facilities were very nice too." - Girl Scout leader/parent participant, July 2013.
