Girl Scouts of all ages can earn their badges at the History Center. Badge Day fees are non-refundable, but with two weeks notice, they may be transferred to a future Badge Day. Register all who will be attending the Badge Day, including adult chaperones and siblings of scouts.
Please note: The History Center reserves the right to cancel any badge days with less than 15 Scout reservations.
The History Center’s Girl Scout programs are self-guided experiences. Each Girl Scout and adult will receive a badge booklet. Follow the directions in the booklet, complete the activities, and visit many of the History Center’s exhibitions. Scouts will learn skills such as how to care for collections and research, and — of course — learn remarkably fun local history. When the Scouts finish the booklets, they will have met the requirements for the badge. You can purchase badges and patches through your district. Girl Scouts do not need to have their work check by a merit badge counselor.
- Badges take approximately 3-4 hours to complete
- Scouts can only complete ONE badge during each visit
