While visiting the Wisconsin Maritime Museum and touring USS Cobia, Girl Scouts have the opportunity to cover some requirements for several badges. Most of these requirements are not covered by a specific program but can be completed by your own group during your visit.
Brownies: Celebrating Community Badge
Brownies can work on their Celebrating Community Legacy badge just by touring USS Cobia! USS Cobia was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1986 as a memorial to the men and women who built the 28 submarines in Manitowoc during World War II as well as the brave men who served aboard them. (Patch not included)
Step 4: #2: Tour a landmark that honors the past.
Visit a historic landmark, such as the place where a leader was born or an old battleground. Or visit a historical society or museum. Collect three facts you didn’t know about the place, and share them with your family.
Brownies “Love Water” Day
Discover the wonders of water! Learn how water connects people all over the world. Be inspired to lead your family and friends as water advocates. These activities will help fulfill your “Love Water” Award requirements! (Patch not included) Cost: $6 per Brownie
