Scouting the Zoo 2014

It’s time once again for one of the coolest events of the year – Scouting the Zoo! Units from all over will join us for a fun weekend of camping on the Zoo grounds, and one of the best public displays of Scouting in the Midwest!

During the day units have displays and are open to visitors walking around throughout the Zoo. Show off your monkey bridge, bake some box cookies, or teach visitors all about tracking animals – hundreds of Cubs, Boy Scouts and Venturers will be there to show the best of Scouting. But when the Zoo closes, we really know how to have fun with movies, games, train and zoo mobile rides, and much, much more! Sunday morning there are church services on the grounds and another day of fun and aventure!

Won’t your Pack, Troop or Crew join us this year?

Find more information on the Council site HERE!
