Partnerships with the Boy Scouts of America and Girl Scouts of America Local Troops
Winthrop University is proud to partner with the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts to provide opportunities for Boy Scout Eagle Award Projects or
Girl Scout Bronze, Silver, or Gold Projects.
Watch this space for project ideas
and see how the projects evolve.
Projects may be on Winthrop University's main campus (701 Oakland Avenue) or the Recreation and Research Complex (i.e. "the Farm"), located about one mile east of the main campus on Eden Terrace Avenue. The Winthrop Farm has a number of spaces used by Biology students for teaching and learning. They include a wetlands, lake, woods, and succession plots, whereby students can observe changes in the environment. For more information about new and complete scout projects, visit the College of Arts and Sciences website.
