Maple Syrup Days

Weekend 1 - March 29 to 31
Weekend 2 - April 5 to 7 
Day Program and STEM Weekend Options
for Scouts & Venture Scouts


As winter melts into spring, the sugar bush comes alive at Bear Paw Scout Camp in Mountain, WI. This sweet Scouting program will offer hands on experience in the process of making maple syrup from bucket to bottle.

This program is intended for Scouts and Adult Leaders. They should be capable of participating in physical activities and 6th grade science based principles.

Sap runs occur when the daytime temperature is above freezing (32°F) and the previous night was below freezing. Full buckets will make everyone happy, but we cannot control the weather, we just hope it cooperates. Dress appropriately for the weather.

Weekend Programs
March 29-31 & April 5-7
The program starts on Friday evening with check-in at 7:00 p.m. and concludes on Sunday morning at 10:00 a.m. Participants will learn about the process of making maple syrup from tree to bottle in both modern and traditional methods. During the weekend Scouts will also experience STEM activities which will help them in working towards completing NOVA Awards. The cost of the weekend program is only $50.00 per person and includes all activities, commemorative patch, 8 oz. bottle of Bear Paw Maple Syrup customized with their name, and room and board.

One Day Saturday Programs
March 30 & April 6
