Lowndes County - A South Georgia amusement park will soon be invaded by hundreds of Boy Scouts.

Wild Adventures Theme Park is teaming up with the Alapaha Area Council of Boy Scouts for a wild scouting adventure. The two organizations have designed a program where scouts can spend a weekend working at the park to earn a Wild Adventures badge.

"Scouts are going to produce and run an arena show, and do so many things that they could not do normally," said Matt Hart.

"We hope this will become a tri-state event for scouts from Georgia, Florida, and Alabama and will run for many years to come," said Kent Beuscher, Park Owner.

To kick off the program, Wild Adventures donated $2,500.00 to the Boy Scouts Friday.

The first scouting adventure weekend will be in February of 2005.
