Scout Day – Spring 2022

Sunday, April 3rd, 2022 from 12:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. 

Come and work on scout badges and achievement requirements at the Botanical Garden!

This Scout Day is designed for K-3rd grade Cub Scouts and Girl Scouts. Scouts will choose stations to visit. Some of the topics include composting, Leave No Trace, insects, planting seeds, painting and a nature walk.

  • Daisies: Outdoor Art Maker Badge and parts of the Flower Garden Journey.
  • Brownies: Bug Badge, Outdoor Art Creator Badge, and most of the Hiker Badge.
  • Lions: Mountain Lion and Ready, Set, Grow
  • Tigers: My Tiger Jungle and Tigers in the Wild
  • Wolves: Grow Something, Call of the Wild, and parts of Paws on the Path.
  • Bears: Fur, Feathers, & Ferns

 

Where:  Aaron Education Center at the Bellevue Botanical Garden, 12001 Main Street, Bellevue, WA 98005.  Please check-in at the Education Center when you arrive.

We are asking that 2nd and 3rd graders arrive at 12:20 pm, at the earliest, and K-1st graders come at 12:45 pm – just to make the check-in process smoother.  If you have a mix of ages, anytime between 12:30 and 12:45 is fine.  You can leave any time you are done.

Cost:  $12 per scout.  Adult chaperones are free. Registration is by individual scout and not by troop/den.  If you want to register a group, you can contact us at youthed@bellevuebotanical.org.

 

Other information:
  • Bring your own water bottle and snacks. See below for current COVID guidelines.
  • Scouts must be accompanied by an adult or follow their scout adult/child safety ratios. Suggested ratio is at least 1 adult per 4 scouts. This is not a drop-off event.
  • Scouts will receive a BB Garden Fun Patch. Earned official badges or achievements are not included.

Private Youth Group/Scout Workshops

Private youth group or Scout badge workshops are being offered on a limited basis starting in March 2022.
