Age Groups: J (click for more information)
Who: Girl Scout Juniors
Fly into summer vacation by learning about the habitats of our nocturnal friends and engaging in the new sport of geocaching! Meet the requirements to earn two badges - Geocacher & Animal Habitats. During your fun-filled visit, learn to use geo-slang, track a Travel Bug, make trade items, and go on a scout themed geocaching hunt. Girls will also learn how to use a GPS unit and find coordinates. In the Animal Habitat badge, 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.
