Tanglewood Self-Guided Programs

For those interested in a staff-guided program, please note that the Nature Education Division will not have Fall of 2015 and Spring of 2016 programs. We apologize for any inconvenience. Please check back next year for updates.

Tanglewood Discovery Programs

For those interested in a Self-Guided Discovery Program, we now have a wider range of new and revised programs that are grade-specific and correlate with North Carolina Essential Standards for Science and/or Social Studies.

Are you, or do you know someone, associated with the Girl Scouts of America? Our Discovery Programs are customized to assist Daisy, Brownie, Junior, and Cadette Girl Scouts with earning petals, badges, and awards.
