Youth Groups

Youth group leaders can take advantage of a wide variety of free learning and service opportunities appropriate for all ages. Perhaps your group is looking to take part in a service project or staff-guided program, or is looking for ways to accomplish requirements for a specific patch or badge.

Staff Guided Programs
Staff-guided programs are free for McHenry County groups and a minimum attendance of 12 children is  required. We typically schedule programs after school, between the hours of 3:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. However, there is some flexibility for evening and weekend hours.

Email or call (815) 338-6223 for additional information or to schedule a program.
