Plan Your Next Scout / Youth Event in Montgomery County

Montgomery County is the place to look when planning next summer’s youth event.  Perfect lodging and attractions for Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts, American Heritage Girls and youth groups.  Come and explore the options.

No matter yIndiana-Zipline-Tours.jpgour budget, Montgomery County can give your group an experience filled with memory making opportunities with just the right mix of education and action.  Zipline at Indiana Zipline Tours, canoe or tube down the beautiful Sugar Creek by taking advantage of equipment rental at Clement’s Canoes & Outdoor Center or Sugar Creek Campground, hike the trails at Shades State Park, Sugar Creek Community Trail or the Sugar Creek Nature Park which features 12 outdoor classroom workstations throughout the 4,000 feet of trail or hunt for crinoid fossils along Sugar Creek.

The Carnegie Museum, an interdisciplinary and interactive museum of history, science and art, is open year round with free admission, and the Lew Wallace Study & Museum is a National Landmark dedicated to celebrating the legacy of Lew Wallace, Civil War Major General, diplomat, inventor and world-renowned author of Ben-Hur.  The grounds of the Lane Place are perfect for a picnic style lunch.  The staff have even been known to loan out croquet sets and corn toss games to visiting groups.  The Rotary Jail Museum is a must see, as it is the ONLY jail left in the country where the cell block rotates 360 degrees.  Contact museums in advance and let them know if you are working on a specific badge and if possible they will tie the topic into your tour experience.
