There are a variety of science, business, and arts badges.

Parents are welcome to stay. We will have a room available for parents to relax, do work, or whatever they choose. We host this event, so we can help young girls with learning new skills and discovering new passions. During each session, Girl Scouts can complete badge requirements! Each session will be held by a college volunteer from our fraternity, and is a great experience for us as well! Badges are not included in the price of the workshop and will not be provided day of.

Workshops will be in Sturm Hall (2000 E Asbury Ave, Denver, CO 80210).
