MarineQuest Girl Scouts Jamboree
From Shore to Sea Patch Program
Various programs for Girl Scouts ages 11-17
Does you troop or individual scout want to join the MarineQuest staff for a day of exploring the marine habitats of coastal Wilmington and participate in lab experiments at the UNCW Center for Marine Science, but is too small for a private group reservation? If so the MarineQuest Girl Scouts Jamboree is for you!
Join the MarineQuest staff for a day exploring the marine habitats of coastal Wilmington and participate in lab experiments at the UNCW Center for Marine Science geared towards the Girl Scouts Shore to Sea Patch. The day will begin at the UNCW Center for Marine Science where Girl Scouts will learn about the variety of careers involved in marine science (CE,1) and become marine scientists in the MarineQuest lab as they participate in a variety of customized activities. They may have a chance to view the Gulf Stream display and discuss how this underwater current influences our local weather (SB,3). Or perhaps they will become marine geologists as they examine sands from around North America (SB,2) or marine chemists as they discover how to get fresh water from sea water(T,4). During the afternoon this program heads out for a variety of field activities where Girls Scouts will explore various coastal habitats such as sandy beaches (SB,1) and the salt marsh(SB,1). Each Jamboree is age-level specific, so the exact lab and field activities that await your scout are determined by their Girl Scout membership level; however all of our Jamboree programs are a full-day of fun, adventure and learning!
This program will allow Girl Scouts to fulfill many of the requirements for this Patch except for Service Project component which can be completed after the MarineQuest program.
MarineQuest does not provide patches. A certificate of completed requirements will be provided. Girl Scouts should provide the completed certificate to a Scout Master who can then issue individual patches.
