Scout Programs

Looking for a fun way to earn a Scout badge? Love animals? Then Rescue Ranch Scout Programs are for you and your troop!

Each program is 2 hours long and includes at least three hands-on animal encounters and activities. Programs meet most, if not all, badge requirements.

The cost of the program is $7.00 per Scout and sibling* and $10.00 per parent. We allow up to two free leaders per program. (One free leader for troops with five to nine Scouts; 2 free leaders for troops of 10 Scouts or more.) We also have Rescue Ranch patches available. They are $3 if purchased with a program and $5 if purchased separately.

In order to book the program we require a $50 non-refundable deposit. This deposit will go towards the total amount due on the day of the program.
If you have a group with 20 or more participants, you can schedule a private badge program on a weeknight or weekend that we have available but you must pay in full at the time of booking. Please call at least a month in advance to arrange your date and let us know how many are attending. If the number of scouts attending the program has changed from when the program was booked, Rescue Ranch must be made aware at least two weeks prior to the scout program otherwise they will be charged for the number of scouts on the reservation form. Final payment is due the day of the program.

*We recommend that siblings be 5 years or older to attend the program.
