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

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.
