Bring Your Troop to PEEC

The Pocono Environmental Education Center (PEEC) offers a variety of classes and activities that will help fulfill requirements for environmental and outdoor scout badges. 

A day or weekend program at PEEC can be individually designed to meet each scout troop's needs.  In addition to badgework, troops can add activities such as team building, challenge courses, or a campfire. 

Stay Overnight with Us!

 Turn your day trip into an overnight adventure! Join us for Badge Fest and we'll provide 1 night's lodging, dinner and breakfast, plus a campfire for only $43 per person. 

Spend an evening fireside, stargazing and telling stories in our heated cabins. Enjoy a warm shower and hit the trails the next morning for a hike! Evening or morning classes are available with an instructor for an additional fee. *Registration for Badge Fest required prior to overnight bookings*

Scout Program Discounts

PEEC offers discounts for scout groups that schedule programs outside our Badge Fests or Scout Weekends.

Our instructors love teaching outdoor, nature, and environmental badgework and programs. We also have several Merit Badge Counselors on staff who are available to teach badges and sign blue cards.
