Reptile and Amphibian Study

In this session, Scouts will develop knowledge about reptiles and amphibians in order to lead them to a stronger appreciation for all native wildlife.  Requirement 8 will not be completed at camp, as it requires a Scout to keep a reptile or amphibian for at least one month.

Additionally, participants are required to attend the "frog hunt," an evening quest for wildlife observation hosted by the Nature staff at 9:00pm on Tuesday night.

Reptile and Amphibian Study is not recommended for Scouts who are very afraid of snakes, although the week's activities may help lessen any mild fears.  The Nature staff is well-trained in the safe capture and handling of venomous and non-venomous snakes.
