Boy Scout Day at Old Sturbridge Village offers Boy Scouts, and their families and friends, the opportunity to learn about America's proud past! Our recreated community portrays a "typical" New England town of the early 19th century. It is divided into three distinct areas: the Center Village, the Countryside, and the Mill Neighborhood. The historical mills, shops, homes, working farm, district school, commercial buildings, and meetinghouses re-create a community where authentically costumed Villagers demonstrate and discuss with visitors the daily life, work, and celebrations of 19th-century New Englanders.
Registration for 50-minute hands-on studio activities will open approximately one month in advance of the event date. These activities are designed to meet Cub Scout Elective and Badge requirements. Additional Studios not meeting badge requirements will also be available for all Scouts and youths. If time permits, consider making a quick craft in the Hands-on Crafts Center; $5-10 per activity - first come, first served; some age and safety restrictions apply.
Stay a little longer...special Scout Overnights scheduled!
