Search & Rescue/ Geocaching Weekend

Leader’s Guide  & Registration Form

Another Specialty Event brought to you by Pipsico Scout Reservation, the Search and Rescue/ Geocaching Weekend will be an awesome opportunity for scouts to experience more of the adventurous programs in the Boy Scouts of America. This event is designed for scouts to complete either the Search and Rescue Merit Badge OR the Geocaching Merit badge. Additionally, and new for 2014, the program will have specific attributes and activities worked into the schedule for Venture scouts to accomplish certain advancement requirements.

Camping is available beginning at 5:30pm on Friday through 11:00am on Sunday. Saturday lunch will be made on the grill and is the only meal provided. The “Snack Shack” and Pipsico Trading Post will be open for the weekend and serving some hot food (including breakfast) on Saturday. All Provisional Scouts (those registering individually without a unit) Welcome!!!

Highlights include a full, large scale hypothetical search and rescue scenario encompassing many acres of Pipsico Scout Reservation, tracking down where some of the more than 20 private caches are located on Pipsico Scout Reservation, and of course good fellowship and fun!
