 Girl Scout Badge Workshops have concluded for the Spring Season.

Whitaker Center's Girl Scout workshops are always a favorite.  We offer workshops for Daisies, Brownies, Juniors, and Cadettes.  We offer a variety of workshops from Citizen Science to Mechanical Engineering.  Scouts can register with their troop or as individuals.  Adults and leaders will need to accompany their Girl Scouts to the workshop and remain within the required ratios.  Each scout will take home the earned badge(s) at the end of the workshop to add to their vest or sash! Questions regarding workshops can be sent to education@whitakercenter.org.  We look forward to seeing you soon! 

Please note, for badge workshops held at Whitaker Center - science center exploration before or after your workshop is NOT included in the price of your workshop.  Science center tickets can be purchased at the Box Office the day of your workshop if the science center is open to the public.  

Given new CDC guidelines Whitaker Center is requiring all individuals grade 12 and under wear a mask during their time at Whitaker Center.  Those older than 12th grade are highly encouraged to wear a mask as the majority of Whitaker Center patrons are not yet eligible to receive a vaccination against Covid-19.
