Scout Overnights

Overnights are held at the Aldo Leopold Nature Center Black Earth Campus and are offered year round. Three overnight options exist (see below for descriptions). Activities include badge work, night hike, and a nighttime snack around the campfire.

All overnight reservations require a $100 non-refundable deposit to hold your dates. We recommend scheduling at least 3 months in advance. To set up your overnight program or for more information please call (608) 216-9370 or email alncreg@naturenet.com.
