Scout and Youth Programs

Bring your Boy Scout, Girl Scout, Y Guides, Junior Garden Club, 4-H Club or other youth group to Raleigh to spend an exciting day in the JC Raulston Arboretum gardens. Programs are designed to support your group's exploration of nature offering activities that work toward completion of badges, adventures, or requirements. We also work with Eagle Scouts looking for projects to do.

Seasonal programs are scheduled on our calendar. Scouts and 4H students can attend as individuals or as a troop.

Looking for something not listed on the calendar? Contact the children's program coordinator to discuss your group's needs and interests. Custom programs and scout field trips can be arranged for groups of at least 10 participants.
