Boy Scout and Girl Scout Programs

Nurture Nature Center is proud to support boy and girl scout troops in their efforts to meet badge requirements. NNC offers science, art and community programming that can help scouts meet their requirements.



Space Exploration


Citizenship in Community





Disability Awareness








Girl Scouts participate in a creative exercise after seeing a Science on a Sphere show about corals.

Boy Scouts see a Science on a Sphere show.

Girl Scouts learn about coral and how it is important to our oceans.


For both boy scouts (also webelos) and girl scouts, NNC offers specific programs upon individual troop request.  These programs cannot meet all badge requirements but can help scouts on their journey to attain badges.  Contact us today and see how we can help make learning fun!


NNC offers:

  • Science on a Sphere – a large globe with earth and space visualizations
