Boy Scouts Programs

You and your scouts will discover the unique ecosystem created by the San Marcos Springs. Scout program participants have unlimited access to the park grounds, the picnic area and all of the exhibits, and displays prior to and after all programs.  Please wear field trip type clothing - loose comfortable clothes and sturdy outdoor rubber soled shoes.

Badges are not given out during the tour.  Our programs are inspired by Boy Scout badges but are not official badge programs and do not meet all badge requirements. It is the responsibility of the troop leader to check current Boy Scouts of America's current badge requirements and have scouts complete the remainer of the program in accordance with them.
