Scout & Community Programs

Looking for a fun and engaging outing with your scout troop or community group? Dig in and experience the Gardens' vast diversity of plants, trees and ecosystems from Colorado and around the world with one of these program options.

The Gardens’ onsite programming has been modified to keep class sizes small, follow social distancing protocols and reduce materials shared between participants. All participants ages 3 and older are required to wear a mask at all times.

Guided Discovery Tour

Guided interactive explorations led by a Denver Botanic Gardens educator.

  • 45-60 minutes long depending on the age and size of your group
  • Includes guided tour of a section of the Gardens, a planting activity and a self-guided scavenger hunt to help continue your group’s exploration after the program
  • After the program, enjoy the Gardens with your group on your own
  • Guided Discovery Tours are appropriate for Girl Scouts, Cub Scouts and other community scouting groups and are customizable to meet the interests of your group

Price: $75 program fee includes up to six scouts and two adults. Additional scouts are $10. Due to group size restrictions if your group will have more than six scouts your group will be split into two or more smaller groups. One adult for every three scouts is admitted free of charge. Additional adults and non-participating siblings ages 3 and up are $7.
