Girl Scout Programs

Everything a Girl Scout does centers around STEM, the outdoors, development of life skills and entrepreneurship, and is designed to meet her where she is now and to grow along with her. Lake Erie Nature & Science Center is proud to offer a variety of Girl Scout programs for Daisies through Seniors that utilize our natural setting, live animal collection, public-access planetarium and highly trained staff. The Center meets the Girl Scout Curriculum Standards and develops STEM programming to meet new badges including space science and mechanical engineering.
