Guided and Self-Guided Programs

Book a Scout Pack or Den to visit to Norfolk Botanical Garden! We feature a variety of opportunities for many of the different Scout age levels. Program options include:

  • Lion “Ready, Set, Grow” Elective Adventure
  • Tiger “My Tiger Jungle” Core Adventure
  • Wolf “Grow Something” Elective Adventure
  • Bear “Fur, Feathers, and Ferns” Core Adventure
  • Cub Scout/Webelos/AOL “Into the Woods” Elective Adventure
  • Cub Scout/Webelos/AOL “Into the Wild” Elective Adventure

All Scout programs must be registered through NBG. Scouts will not be permitted to receive the group rate or program materials without a scheduled reservation. Scouts will be provided their work materials and a pin or loop upon check in. At that time, they will be able to explore the Garden, and complete the required activities. If a guided program is booked, a Youth Educator will the group on an approximately one and half hour tour.

Self-Guided Program: $16/Scout, $14/chaperone and tag-alongs. (Only the Into the Woods Elective Adventure has a self-guided option.)

All Guided Programs: $20/Scout, $14/chaperone and tag-alongs. 

A $50 deposit is required at the time of booking for all self-guided and guided tours.

Program times are available at any point during the week. Self-guided programs must be booked at least a week in advance, with guided programs requiring a minimum of two weeks in advance of the intended visit date. All program rates include Garden admission. NBG Member adults are permitted to chaperone Scout programs for free. Even if a member of the Garden, the Scout fee must be paid to receive the program materials and patch or badge.
