Plunge into the underground world!  Earn two badges during this weekend combo event.  The Geocacher badge program teaches girls how to use a GPS unit and find coordinates. Girls will also learn to use geo-slang, track a Travel Bug, make trade items, and go on a scout themed geocaching hunt.  In the Animal Habitats badge program, learn why animals live where they do and how we can protect those areas.  Girls will discuss cave animals and habitats, create a poster about endangered species, and build a bat house to put up in their communities.  This event includes a presentation about cave conservation, cave animals, and cavern formation. The highlight of your trip will be touring TWO beautiful crystal caverns. Included are workshops to fulfill badge/patch requirements, indoor “slumber party” style lodging, evening snack, and a lunch-time meal.  Optional:  Get more out of your event by adding the Junior Going Batty Patch.  Discover why bats are such great neighbors and what we can do to help them during this patch program.  Each troop will build a bat house to put up in their community.  Learn more by visiting our website www.lincolncaverns.com.  

Fee: $55.00 per person, includes indoor lodging, evening snack, lunch on Sunday
