Scout & Explorer Weekend

Park naturalists invite, not only Girl Scouts, but all youth to “Scout & Explorer Weekend.” A variety of hands-on activities are planned and scheduled outdoors. Open to the public, activities are designed for youth ages 6-16, however, any age is welcome to participate.

Activities planned at Pipestem Resort State Park will focus on a Friday night “NIGHT OWL – An Owl Prowl,” “CRITTER CRAWL, POLLINATOR WALK and ANIMAL HABITATS” programs and activities on Saturday and “PLANTS: What grows down in the Bluestone Gorge” on Sunday as a hike and identification program. Activities typically include a hike or easy walk, include an interactive approach and are about an hour of time or longer of participant engagement.

For participation interest by youth groups such as Girl Scouts, please contact Julie McQuade, Naturalist at 304-466-1800. If calling for activity information or to plan activities for a group, please leave a message if the naturalist isn’t available when you call or email [email protected]
