Each will last approximately one hour and be led by a program coordinator from Jackson’s Mill. Scouts and their Scout-age guests can sign up for one, two, three or all four of the special programs offered for a fee of $10 for each Scout or Scout-age guest. Class spots will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Each class will be offered five times throughout the day with a limited capacity for each offering.
