Scavenger Hunt Sheets



The Fox Valley Scout Program Collaboration is a group of field trip providers that have developed programs based on the requirements of BSA cub scout awards of merit We have collaborated to provide a range of professionally-led programs that give scouts of all levels an opportunity to earn awards in field trip settings throughout the Fox Valley. Our efforts are published in a single brochure to make it easier for scout leaders to find the programs they need. This collaboration is voluntary and is organized by the providers.  Collaboration members have updated program content to reflect new Core and Elective Adventures.

Heckrodt’s cub scout clinics are concluded for the 2015/2016 season.  See our 2016/2017 listings below.
