Scout Days

Brookgreen Gardens is excited to offer Scout Workshops.

Gather up your kids, troop, pack, or club to join us for our Scout Days this spring. You do not have to be a “scout” to participate. Our Creative Education Department offers badge programs for both Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts. Scouts will enjoy a tour of our ‘Simply Amazing’ Gardens and Zoo.

Although these workshops fulfill Scout requirements, children of all ages and abilities are welcome to attend.

Scout Days are still in the planning process. If you are interested in participating, contact Stephanie Atkinson at (843) 235-6055 or by choosing "education" in the contact form on our website.

Cost: $7 per scout/child *Required Adults: $0 Additional Adults: $7 Additional Information: Program cost applies to members and non-members. To remain at Brookgreen after program completion, non-members must buy a general admission ticket - upon entrance.

Pre-registration is required 3 weeks in advance. Brookgreen does not provide the actual scout badge. Please contact your local council to purchase the badge. Brookgreen Gardens Badge is $4.50. (Scouts and non-scouts may purchase.)
