Girl Scout Brownie Inventor Badge Camp

How do you turn an idea into a real-life product? Can you invent the best thing since sliced bread? Girl Scouts will learn the design process as they see their sketched ideas turn into real prototypes. They’ll use vacuum-formers, heat sealers, and non-traditional materials to build their prototype. Who knows – maybe it will be worth a million bucks! Keep exploring inventions in the afternoon by learning about Nikola Tesla. Explore electro-magnets and produce a dancing figure as you learn from some very famous inventors. What will you be inspired to invent next?

Attendees are given a chance to help set the sails and drive the boat. The sails are two hours long and will be running all summer long, with two time options available most days. Look for special event sails as well, including the Sunday Seafood Dinner aboard the ship!

Girl Scout Brownie Senses Badge Camp

Are you a supertaster? Do certain smells remind you of different memories? Can you hear a pin drop from a mile away? Find out the answers to these questions and much more as you reveal the science of your five senses. Girl Scouts will perform scientific experiments to learn how their senses work. Continue your sense explorations in the afternoon by creating optical illusions and discovering the truth about them. End the day by following your nose and creating a custom-blended perfume that is perfect just for you.

Girl Scout Brownie It's Your Planet - Love It! Camp

Girl Scouts will spend the day immersed in water as they start off the Wonders of Water Journey! We’ll walk you through the LOVE and SAVE Awards by learning all about tea, and see why water is important before you create your customized water pledge. Take a tour behind the scenes at the Reiman Aquarium and experience what it takes to manage an aquarium. Create your own model aquifers to see how our drinking water is filtered. In our exhibits, calculate how much water you use and explore how water is cleaned. Have you ever made soda from scratch? We’ll finish this day on water by making your own from Discovery World’s secret recipe!
