Girl Scout Days at Old Sturbridge Village are one of the Scout programs offered by OSV, providing Girl 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. Special programs and hands-on studios designed around a specific theme help Scouts earn requirements toward badges, meet other Scouts, and make lasting memories.
19th-Century Women's Sphere
This April we will explore the many aspects of women's lives in early rural 19th-century America. What kind of work did women and their daughters do and where did they do it? What did they do for entertainment? What was it like to be an African American? A hired servant? What did women and girls think about the social and political issues of their day?
Learn about women and girls of the 1830s through storytelling, demonstrations and hands-on opportunities. These activities are designed to meet Scout electives and some badge requirements.
Additional studios are also available for all Scouts and youths at the Country Bank Education Center. Badge-related studios will be offered to Daisies, Brownies, Juniors and Cadettes. Additional studios not meeting badge requirements are available for brothers, sisters and scouts ages 5-17. Registration for studios begins in March. Check out the studio descriptions.
