Earning ranks is historically fun at the Village!
Programs Designed for Your Scouts
Visit Dallas Heritage Village with your pack or den and experience history. We believe in living history, and as a part of that mission, we offer a variety of hands-on programs for Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts of all ages. Activities are aligned with various Boy Scout and Cub Scout achievements and electives. Dallas Heritage Village does not provide Boy Scout patches, belt loops or pins. For easy reference, download our Boy Scout Programs Flyer.
Workshops are $15 per scout, 1 free adult for every 5 scouts; additional adults are $7 each. A $90 deposit must be paid at the time of booking in order to reserve your spot. Pack, dens, or troops can be combined to meet the minimum. Workshops last between 1 ½ to 2 hours.
