Squire Boon Caverns

Event:  Squire Boone Caverns
Date:  June 10th, 2017
Time:  10:00 AM EST (9:00 AM CST our time)
Location:  100 Squire Boone Rd, Mauckport, IN 47142
Details:

 Guided Caverns Tour
Panning for gems and minerals at the sluice
Candle-making Demonstration
Each participant will dip their own candle to take home
Lye Soap-making Demonstration
Grist Mill History and Demonstration
Nature trail
Scavenger Hunts are also available for kids to earn a free Rock Crystal Candy stick

Let’s plan on arriving at the caverns at 10:00am eastern time (that is 9:00am our time). It is about a 2 hour drive to Squire Boone Caverns, so it is a full day of activities.

On past trips to Squire Boone families have brought their sack lunch and used the shelters and picnic tables for lunch.

Scouts and children under 4 yrs old are free (or paid for by the Pack) additional children are $9.50 each. Registered leaders will be paid for by the Pack. Each youth participant will need to have an parent/guardian present. Additional adults will be $18 each. This is a great deal as the cave tour alone is more than the group rate and does not include any of the other activities.

Please use the link below to sign up for the trip by June 8th so that we can finalize our reservations and cave tour times.

5 If camping: BSA rules are one family per tent. Scouts are not allowed in any tent with anyone but their parent or guardian. This is to protect the scout AND the adults.

7 Please be respectful of other campers/park users re: noise, activity levels. Remember we are scouts!

8 Any adult may cut the corner of a whittling chip card if you witness a Current Bear or Webelos Scout that is not practicing safe knife procedures. They are the ONLY scouts permitted to have pocketknives at pack campouts and ONLY if they have their whittling chip (card) on their body!
