Registration End Date: Tuesday, April 16, 2019

Troop leaders and parents: this is a great opportunity for Daisies to complete their first Girl Scout Journey! This Journey event includes a service project, which means Daisies can complete the whole Journey by visiting all ten stations throughout the Garden. You are also free to visit all the Gardens have to offer throughout the event and after activity stations close.

Choose from a 9 a.m. or 11 a.m. entry into the Gardens on Saturday or Sunday. Activity stations will close each day at 2 p.m.

Space is limited to 125 Girl Scout Daisies per entry time with a total event capacity of 250 Daisy Girl Scouts each day. This event usually fills early, so we recommend registering as soon as possible.

Registration will close April 16 OR when event capacity has been met.

Please note, this event is for the Daisy Flower Garden Journey and does not include earning Daisy Petals, as that is a separate activity. The event fee does not include Journey books and petal badges. Troops and girls can purchase Journey books and badges at the GSCO store or at our online store at http://www.girlscoutshop.com/COLORADO-COUNCIL. Journey books are not required, but some troops find them helpful to bring along to the event.

This is not a drop off event. All Girl Scouts must attend with a parent, guardian, or troop leader. Siblings and tag-alongs may attend but may not participate in activity stations.

Girl Scout Exploration Day: Household Elf

Submitted by Melissa Gula

Metro Denver


How can Girl Scout Brownies help save the environment? Join us at Denver Botanic Gardens on April 28, 2018 for our Household Elf Girl Scout Exploration Day to find out! Through scavenger hunts, crafts, and hands-on activities, Girl Scouts will learn ways to save energy, conserve water, and reduce waste.

Brownies explore plants in the Gardens that have adapted to conserve water in dry climates and meet friendly worms that help compost waste. As a Household Elf, Girl Scouts will construct an energy-saving house, craft their own reusable shopping bags, and pot an air-purifying house plant to take home!

Girl Scout Exploration Days offer Girl Scout troops the opportunity to explore plant-based themes through a variety of hands-on activities and take-home projects. Stations are set up throughout the Gardens for groups to explore. Pack a picnic and make a day of it!

To accommodate a larger number of Girl Scouts and improve your group’s experience we are offering two admission times: 9:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. Activity stations will be available to your group from the admission time you choose until 2:30 p.m.

This program is designed for Girl Scout Brownies. Admission is $12 per girl, which includes admission to the whole Gardens for the day. One adult (troop leader or parent) for every five girls is admitted free of charge. Additional adults and non-participating siblings (those not participating in the take-home activities) receive a reduced admission of $7 each. Siblings who wish to participate in take-home activities should register as girls. For admission times, more details and to sign up, please visit: http://catalog.botanicgardens.org/DateSelection.aspx?item=2607

Daisy Flower Garden Journey at the Denver Botanic Garden

Girl Scouts of Colorado hosted more than 250  Girl Scout Daisies from the Front Range at our annual Daisy Flower Garden Journey at the Denver Botanic Gardens recently. Girl Scouts learned about the Girl Scout Promise and Law through fun garden-themed activities! Girls visited ten tables where they heard important stories, learned Yoga, practiced the Girl Scout Promise and Law, created crafts to share with others, and planted a flower.

Daisies made Best Friends SWAPs to share. Girls also learned ways to be considerate and caring and made a thumbprint card to give to someone special.

Daisies also learned about being courageous and strong while practicing fun animal pose Yoga. Older Girl Scouts did a great job leading activities! Our Daisies had fun learning from them and our older girls were great role models for our younger girls!

Girl Scouts also learned about how to be responsible for they say and do by listening to Mari the Marigold’s story and hearing how Mari kept her promises. There was also time for extra fun! Girl Scouts enjoyed the garden and the beautiful surroundings, too. We lucked out with great weather and the garden had some beautiful spring blooms!

A BIG Thank you goes to our wonderful volunteers who made this great event possible. Girl Scouts and adults from these troops where a huge help!










We’d also like to thank the Denver Botanic Gardens for being a great host! A BIG thank you goes to Melissa Gula and her team members and volunteers for all they did to ensure a smooth and successful event!
