Scout Resources

Girl Scouts and Cub Scouts are invited to use our self-guided activity sheets to complete badge and patch requirements while visiting the Virginia Aquarium. Troop leaders or parents are expected to facilitate the Scout's learning experience and guide them through the steps needed to complete the badge requirements. Check out the free, downloadable activity sheets below.
