Program Details

This two-day overnight program for 4th through 8th grade Juniors and Cadettes in southeastern Pennsylvania will engage Girl Scouts in freshwater science education and coldwater conservation through hands-on activities in science, technology, recreation, engineering, art, and math (STREAM). As STREAM Girls, we will explore stream habitats, discover wriggling aquatic insects, collect real scientific data, learn fly-tying and casting from lifelong anglers, and camp under the stars at a science research center!

Program costs include pizza dinner on Saturday, professionally bound field notebooks, a “swag” bag of water education freebies, and TWO unique patches: the STREAM Girls Fun Patch and the Stroud Center Education Programs Fun Patch. All other meals (lunch Saturday, breakfast and lunch Sunday) are the responsibility of individual troops. 1-2 months before your program, a letter of detailed program information will be sent to the email you provide during registration. Please email Mandy Nix with additional questions or concerns.

  • Fly casting/fishing: Saturday, August 17, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., at Anson B. Nixon Park in Kennett Square, PA, AND
  • Fly-tying: Sunday, August 18, 9 to 10:30 a.m., at Stroud Water Research Center in Avondale, PA.
