Scout Seasonal Workshops

Scout Workshops

Scout Seasonal Workshops are a fun way for Scouts to meet new people and experience nature's changes. At each workshop, students in small groups rotate through various hands-on learning stations, create take-home projects and enjoy the Garden. Individuals and groups are welcome to sign up.


Scout Seasonal Workshop: Winter Wonders
Saturday, December 12, 2015
12:45 – 3 p.m.
$14 per child

Scouts can discover the magic of nature in winter through hands-on activities that combine art and science. Take a winter wildlife hike through the Garden. Make a fragrant evergreen swag, a snowflake catcher and a beeswax candle.

Scout Seasonal Workshop: Valentine’s Day
Saturday, February 13, 2016
12:45 – 3 p.m.
$14 per child

Join fellow Scouts at the Chicago Botanic Garden to celebrate Valentine's Day. Scouts will make recycled Valentines and check out the tree that provides cacao, the main ingredient in chocolate!

Parking is included for every registered Scout — this is not a drop-off program; please plan to spend the session with your Scout. If you are a group leader registering multiple children, please be sure to have at least one actively involved adult for every five Scouts and duplicate your confirmation e-mail to serve as a parking pass for drivers.
