Scout and School Programs

Dutchess County Parks Scout and School programs are designed to give students hands-on learning through experience rather than lecture. The most important lesson conveyed in all the programs offered is that even in the modern world, we are still interconnected and dependent on nature in many ways. 

Scout and School programs can focus on the following topics and can be combined depending on areas of interest:

Animal Track ID, Compass, Mammal Studies, Map Skills, Maple Education, Nature Awareness, Nature Exploration, Pond Exploration, Prehistoric Native American Studies, and Woodland Survival

Cost: $5 per class, per person
