Scouting Programs

The Ogden Nature Center provides the perfect outdoor classroom for scout activities. To enjoy scouting at the Nature Center, there are three options:

1. Lead your own activities.

Pay regular admission of $3.00 per child and $5.00 per adult. No reservation needed! We have activity backpacks available for check-out at the front desk. This service is free with paid admission.

2. Get some help.

Have our teacher/naturalists help your scout pass off badge requirements for $5.00 per scout/ 45 minute class on Scout Saturdays at the nature center. Reservation and a non-refundable deposit required.

3. Have a private class.

Private 45 minute tours/classes can be pre-arranged through the education department by calling 801-621-7595. These classes are the same classes offered during scout saturday programs. Private classes/tours are only available during the week between 3 and 5pm. All private tours/classes must finish by 5:00pm. There is a minumum requirement of 10 students and the cost is $10 per scout. 1 adult scout leader per group can attend for free, and all other participants pay general admission rates.
