NEW DATE: Girl Scout Shapes in Nature Day
Nature Education ProgramDate/Time
Saturday, October 14
11:00 am - 3:30 pm
Calling all Daisy, Brownie, and Junior Girl Scouts! Join us at Norfolk Botanical Garden to complete your Shapes in Nature badge requirements! Girl Scout Math in Nature Day includes all needed program supplies, the corresponding program badges for each Scout level, and daytime Garden admission.
Individual Scouts and Troops are able to sign up for Session 1 (11AM-12:30PM) or Session 2 (2-3:30PM). All programs require adults to attend the programs and assist Scouts with the activities.
Scouts will be divided into groups based on their respective Scout Level (Daisy, Brownie, Junior) to complete the badge requirements. Attending chaperones will be asked to assist their youngest Scout if more than one Scout is attending. Please no sibling tag-alongs.
Note About Drop-Offs: We ask all troops do their best to carpool to the Garden, and to refrain from encouraging parents to drop off/pick up their scouts. Scouts under the age of 14 must have an adult chaperone with them at all times. Parents dropping off Scouts are not permitted to park in the Tram Circle in front of the Visitor Center. It is recommended that vehicles are parked in the main lot, and a chaperone escorts their Scout to the troop leader. In the event Scouts are dropped off, it is the responsibility of the troop leader to ensure those scouts get checked in with a responsible adult in the group. Garden staff will not assist with this process. In addition, parents dropping off or picking up a child are not permitted to stay in the Garden. While they may drop their child off free of charge, parents who plan to stay will either have to use their membership to enter the Garden, pay the chaperone fee for the program, or pay Garden admission at the Front Desk. Please let us know if you have any questions about this. NOTE: The Garden closes at 7PM. Scouts dropped off will be required to be picked up before this time.
Scouts: $18/Girl Scout.
