Girl Scout Day is for Girl Scouts of all ages (friends and family members, too!) who are interested in America's proud past and how their family connects to this history. (Please note: Boy Scout Day is April 6.)
Learn about the women and girls of the 1830s through storytelling, demonstrations and hands-on activities. Get to know the women of the past who have made a difference in our future! Visit the minister's daughter as she practices botanical watercolors, learn about the home remedies outlined in "The Family Nurse" written by Lydia Marie Child. And, take time to visit with Sarah Margru (portrayed by Tammy Denease), the first African to graduate from college in America after gaining her freedom through a victory in the United States legal system. This year's Girl Scout Day promises to be fun and educational!
Explore the everyday lives of girls and women through demonstrations and performances. Visit the animals and the costumed Villagers throughout the Countryside and the Center Village. 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.
Register for 50-120 minute hands-on studios (registration opens 30-days in advance of Girl Scout Day). These activities are for Daisys, Brownies, Juniors and Cadettes. Each program is deisgned to provide the information and resources to earn all 5 Steps - beginning in the studio with follow-up in the Village or at home! Additional Studios will be available for siblings and friends, too!
