Junior Badges and Journeys
NEW! Investigate Journey Award
Explore energy use in CNC’s LEED Certified Discovery Center so you can work to improve energy use in your own home and community! Light it up with an incredible electric experiment and discover what’s really happening when you flip the switch. After you Energize, complete the second step of the Get Moving Journey by learning how to be an energy efficient investigator!
Where do wild animals live? With the right habitat, anywhere! Explore what animals need in their habitat, take a tour of the animals that call CNC home, find out what happens when habitats become endangered and how we can help protect them.
Flowers are beautiful, but why are they here? Discover the science and purpose of flowers, how flowers keep us from getting sick and have some crafty fun making your own flower out of reusable materials. In order to provide the best experience, the most opportune time to schedule this program is between March and November; flowers like warmer weather.
Energize Journey Award
Energy is what makes our world go ‘round! Learn the basics of energy and ways to conserve it. Discover how animals use energy and what we can learn from them. An energy efficiency craft completes the first step of the Get Moving Journey-Investigate is next!
Camper (Overnight Program)
Juniors can earn the NEW Camper Badge in an overnight adventure at the Chattahoochee Nature Center. Practice using a compass, and learn how to plan a camping adventure. Go on a night hike, have an encounter with a nocturnal animal, make s’mores by the campfire and take a journey into Starlab, our portable planetarium. An evening snack and a continental breakfast are included. The best part? You sleep in a climate-controlled, carpeted room.
See our Girl Scout Overnights page for dates and details.
All CNC programs strictly adhere to the badge guidelines as outlined in the official GSUSA badge requirements.
