SCOUT OVERNIGHTERS Grab your sleeping bag! We are allowing scouts and their chaperones a unique opportunity to pitch their tents and spend the night at McCloud Nature Park! Several campsites, each with its own campfire, will provide scouts a temporary home to have fun with their troops. Scouts are welcome to participate in naturalist-led activities, and scout leaders are also encouraged to lead their scouts in activities around the park. Bring something to cook for dinner, and we’ll provide s’mores and a continental breakfast! All levels of scouts are welcome; however, no tagalongs or non-scout children will be permitted. Families with non-scouts should explore our Family Campout opportunity (see below). Chaperones must be either scout leaders or the legal guardians of attending scouts.
