Scout Patch Program at Onondaga Cave State Park in May and September

Scout troops can participate in a two-day event at Onondaga Cave State Park in May and September. Sponsored by Missouri State Parks, patch programs will be held on May 2-3 and Sept. 12-13.

Scouts will be introduced to the Missouri State Park and Historic Site Jr. Explorer program and all scouts completing the requirements associated with this event will receive a unique patch to add to their collection. Patch requirements include a number of interesting activities and a service project.

Space is limited and reservations are required. Applications for the program can be found at and must be completed and signed by the scout leader. Group or individual camping is available. Some fees apply.

Onondaga Cave State Park is located seven miles southeast of the Leasburg exit off of Interstate 44 on Highway H. For more on the event, contact the park at 573-245-6576.
