Old Sturbridge Village Hosts Girl Scout Day on March 27

Girl Scout Day is for Girl Scouts of all ages who are interested in learning more about multi-culturalism in New England in the early 19th century. Learn about how minority women paved a way for themselves and those after them. Meet Molly Geet, a Native American Doctress; Mumbet, a slave who fought for her freedom in the Massachusetts court system and won; and Mary Culligan, an Irish Immigrant and hired-hand.
Register online starting Feb. 24.
Also, inspired by Women's History Month, girls can 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.
Sign up starting Feb. 24 to participate in 50-minute hands-on Studios.
These activities are designed to meet Brownies Try-Its and Junior Girl Scout Badge requirements.
