Scout Programs

Scout Adventures!

The Parklands of Floyds Fork is proud to offer scout programs designed to build outdoor skills and scientific literacy in the scouting community. The Parklands Interpretive Team designs hands-on programs that engage scouts in the outdoors while fulfilling requirements for badges, belt loops and pins.

Day programs can include guided hikes, aquatic ecology activities, and fullfillment of merit badge requirements with Parklands interpretive rangers. The cost for these roughly two-hour programs is $8/scout.

Overnight camping programs can include canoeing the many miles of Floyds Fork with Blue Moon Canoe & Kayak of Kentucky, hands-on astronomy instruction with the Louisville Astronomical Society, guied hikes with Parklands rangers, and a night camping under the stars in The Parklands of Floyds Fork! The cost for overnight programs is $30-$45/person.

Each scout program can be customized to help your troop achieve multiple requirements.
