Build-A-Bear WorkshopTM is now at our Vernon
Hills Gathering Place!
Girl Scouts big and small can now build a bear or furry friend as unique as they are, right in our Vernon Hills Gathering Place. They’ll have the opportunity to pick their bear or furry friend and stuff it with the help of our staff, including Build-A-Bear’s iconic Heart Ceremony – themed just for Girl Scouts.
Then, they can choose from vests and tunics with matching troop numbers, outfits, cookie merchandise, accessories, sounds, and more!
They can enjoy this as an activity on their own, with their troop or even have it be part of a special celebration, like a birthday party or bridging ceremony!
