Step back into time to see how life was for American Girls Kirsten (1854), Kaya (1764), Felicity (1775), Addy (1864) and Caroline Abbott (1812). Mixing adventure with actual events, these historical characters bring to life important times in America. The Frontier Culture Museum of Virginia is the perfect setting for Girl Scouts to live a day in the life of their favorite historical American Girl. Hands on activities that include cooking and making items (start to finish rather than sampling) from a particular time period. This program has been designed specifically for Girl Scouts and varies from what you would see on a school or public tour in the fact that more time is allocated and the girls will be able to really immerse themselves in the daily life of the past.

 

Participants may attend as individuals (with sponsor/adult/parent) or troops (with appropriate number of leaders/adults). Parent/guardian or leader will need to stay during the program.
