Delaware State Parks offer badge programs, volunteer projects and many recreation opportunities for Boy and Girl Scouts of all ages at various sites across the state. Take a look at the program calendar below for upcoming Boy and Girl Scout programs or contact one of the parks listed on the sidebar for more information about their badge programs.
Badge programs include topics such as ecology and nature, birding, orienteering, canoeing, camping, history and more.
Delaware State Parks have been involved in Girl Scouts Love State Parks weekend since the inaugural year of 2019, offering historical, environmental and outdoor skills programs for local Girl Scouts. After moving to virtual programs for last year's event, this year our parks are excited to host your troops again! GSLSP Weekend is fast approaching, and six parks from across the state will be offering programs throughout the weekend, many of which are developed to help your Girl reach various badge requirements. Take a look at the list below, or download our 2021 Program Flyer from the Girl Scouts of the Chesapeake Bay Council to share with your local troop. Remember to register ahead of time. We look forward to seeing you in September!
