Girl Scout Workshops
Discover the Past at Dallas Heritage Village


Bring Your Troop to Dallas Heritage Village


Visit Dallas Heritage Village with your troop and experience history. We believe in living history, and as a part of that mission, we offer a variety of hands-on programs for Girl Scouts of all ages. Choose from our badge workshops, guided tour, or self-guided tour programs.


Badge Workshops


All workshops are $15. Please allow 2 hours for each workshop.

Daisy Girl Scouts

Respect Myself and Others: Scouts will earn the Petal-Gloria
Enjoy a Victorian tea party in one of our historic homes and learn about proper etiquette and manners. Tour some of the Village's historic houses and experience activities enjoyed during the Victorian era.

Money Counts: Scouts will earn the Financial Literacy Leaf
Spend some time downtown on our historic main street learning about coins, paper money and the cost of fun. Plan a budget, visit the bank and go shopping in the General Store, 1900s style.

Making Choices: Scouts will earn the Financial Literacy Leaf
Sometimes it's hard to separate our wants from our needs when saving our pennies. Let's go shopping at the General Store and visit our turn-of-the-century Bank as we learn about setting goals, saving money and helping others with the choices we make.


Brownie Girl Scouts

Making Friends: Scouts will earn the Skill Building Badge-Manners
Enjoy a Victorian tea party in one of our historic homes while learning etiquette and manners to foster lasting friendships. Tour some of the Village's historic houses and experience activities enjoyed during the Victorian era.

Money Manager: Scouts will earn the Financial Literacy I Badge
Let's go shopping! First, a stop at the turn-of-the-century Bank, to learn all about savings and budgets, then on to the General Store to shop for the latest products of the 1900s.


Junior Girl Scouts

Social Butterfly: Scouts will earn the Skill Building Badge-Manners
Experience a Victorian Tea in one of our historic homes where conversation is priority and appropriate manners are a must. Tour some of the Village's historic houses and experience activities enjoyed during the Victorian era.

Savvy Shopper: Scouts will earn the Financial Literacy II Badge
You need this but you want that: however do you decide? Tour the village as you try and find out what makes people happy (or not!) with what they buy. Travel back in time as we explore and compare the needs and wants of girls in the 19th century and girls today.


Time Traveler Tours


GUIDED TOURS
$10 per Girl Scout
Take a tour of several buildings in the Village. Choose from one of the following themes:

Pioneer Girl
If you were a pioneer girl in the 1800s, what would your life have been like? Take a guided tour of the Miller Log House, Millermore and the Farmstead ending with a self-guided craft from the past.

Victorian Girl
If you had lived at the turn of the century, what would your life have been like? Take a guided tour of Blum House and Sullivan House and Renner School and finish with a self-guided craft from the past.

Tours can be adapted to any age level. All Girl Scouts will receive the Dallas Heritage Village Time Traveler Patch.


SELF-GUIDED TOUR
$7 per Girl Scout

Explore the historic village on your own. All Girl Scouts will receive a Time Traveler Scavenger Hunt and the Time Traveler Patch.

Do you plan on visiting lots of museums as a troop? Consider the "History Museum Explorers Patch," a progressive patch featuring history museums in Dallas. The DHV patch is $3. For more details, click here.
