Scout Workshops

The New Jersey Academy for Aquatic Sciences is pleased to be able to offer several workshop options for Scouts to work towards earning their badges.

Workshops at Adventure Aquarium or at Your Location

Come to the Aquarium to work on your badge, or let us come to your meeting and help you at your location!

Workshops are 2-hours long and are broken down into four sessions. Each ˝-hour long session completes one requirement for the badge. (Please see the full badge description to determine if your scouts will need to do more work on their own outside of the workshop, as not all workshops complete all of the needed requirements.) Scouts will be given a worksheet to take notes as we go through the workshop, but are asked to bring their own pencils. All workshops combine hands-on activities, live animals and biofacts.

Girl Scouts can choose from the following badge workshop offerings:

Juniors Wildlife Badge Brownies Animals Try-It

Juniors Water Wonders Badge Brownies Eco-Explorer Try-It

Juniors Marine Animals Badge (GSEP*) Brownies Marine Animals Try-It (GSEP*)

Juniors Ocean Discovery Badge (GSCSNJ*) Brownies Ocean Discovery Try-It (GSCSNJ*)

*These badges are “Council’s Own” badges, but the workshops are open to any Troop that wishes to book them.

Boy Scouts can choose from the following badge workshop offerings:

Webelos Naturalist Badge    
Boy Scout Oceanography Badge    

If you do not see a workshop that fits your Scouts’ needs, please feel free to contact us and we will be happy to try to work with you. Scouts are also welcome to book any of our Classroom Lessons or Tour Programs at Adventure Aquarium or any of our TrOutreach Traveling programs.

Please call 856-361-1023 for more information or to reserve your program.

Workshops “In the Field”

Bring your scouts and “Meet us in the Wild” as we help you work on different aspects of your badges. Field programs are 2- hours long, and depending on your groups’ interest, we can customize our program to meet your needs.

Some suggested badges that we can work on include:

Juniors Earth Connections Boy Scouts Forestry

Brownies Water Everywhere Boy Scouts Nature

Brownies Outdoor Adventurer Boy Scouts Plant Science

Boy Scouts Environmental Science Boy Scouts Soil & Water Conservation

Boy Scouts Fish & Wildlife Management Boy Scouts Oceanography

Scouts will need to meet us at either our Pinelands or Wetlands sites (depending on the badge) and should be prepared to get wet and muddy! Some badges may require scouts to do work on their own to prepare for the workshop, or as follow up after the workshop. Please call 856-361-1023 for more information or to register.
