Butterflies and Ballet
This special event provides a unique and memorable way to experience and learn about butterflies. Troops will attend a performance of Who Am I? A Butterfly Ballet, presented by the Grand Rapids Ballet Junior Company which includes colorful costumes, spectacular music, and exquisite choreography. Scouts will also create a special butterfly-related art project and visit the butterflies in the Lena Meijer Tropical Conservatory. An optional fun patch will be available for purchase in the gift shop.
There will be two check-in times. Troops that check-in at 11 am will begin with the art activity prior to attending the Butterfly Ballet at 12:30 pm. Groups that check-in at 12 pm will attend the ballet first and then participate in the art activity and view the butterflies.
Bugs Badge – Girl Scout Brownies are able to fulfill three requirements from the Bug badge at this event. An optional fun patch will be available for purchase in the gift shop.
