Geology Merit Badge for Scouts

Materials are provided for this 2.5 hour class in geology that covers all the merit badge requirements. Discussions led by a geologist, using pictures and samples, help the students gain an understanding of the earth, mining, road building, careers, rocks and minerals. Following the class time, students sift through a bag of dirt to find semi-precious gemstones. Using what they find, they start a rock collection which they keep in a craft box.

  • Class usually starts at 10:00 a.m.
  • Cost is $15 per scout. Reservations required.
  • After the badge, take a lunch break – we have a picnic area – then take one of our cave tours, specially priced for scouts.
