Brownie WOW! Journey
The newly renovated Brownie Splash program focuses on and enhances your Brownies’ WOW! Leadership Journey. You’ll receive suggested activities to do in meetings before your Aquarium visit. During your visit you will use special puzzles and activities to take the girls on a real-live water journey with Brownie Elf and Grandmother Elf. You will take home patches and a packet of fun things to do to help you wrap up your Journey on the Wonders of Water. All activities, puzzles and games are correlated to the girls’ journey book and the leader’s guide to help you use them exactly where you want them.
Junior Get Moving! Journey
Still under construction, but nearing an exciting completion, this Aquarium program will help your Junior scouts take real leadership roles in energy conservation at home and in the community. You’ve never had so much fun making a difference!
Upon arrival, a staff member will show you to the Delta Swamp Classroom, orient you to the Aquarium and introduce you to the Splash program. We’ll have a special guide for leaders so that you can assist your girls in solving a challenging puzzle as you tour the Aquarium. We’ll loan you activity kits to help your group take their visit to the max and speed your girls down the road to leadership in resource conservation. You'll have use of the classroom for three hours. Click here for more information about Splash programs. Click here for more information about the Splash program.
