Scout Programs

Consisting of over twenty-five separate offerings for boys and girls, the Meadowlands Environment Center’s scout program is designed to use the unique landscape that surrounds our facility to engage scouts and effectively address requirements of several badges.

Programs are generally scheduled on Saturdays with two session times available: 10:00-11:30 and 1:00-2:30. The program fee is $7 per scout for single session programs, $10 per scout for double sessions. There is no charge for scout leaders or chaperones.

For information on cost, our cancellation policy, and related details, please review the program policies.
