Boy Scout Programs

Earning ranks is historically fun at the Village!

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. 


Cub Scout Workshop Day


Join us at the village for a day of merit badge fun. Tigers will learn about Tall Tales and participate in campfire songs and yarns. Bears will test out their green thumbs and Grow Something. Wolves will jam out and immerse themselves in a World of Sound. And our Webelos place themselves in the past while Looking Back, Looking Forward. All the merit badges will be completed with a historic twist! The museum will be open and available for browsing and family fun as well.

Self-Guided Tours
Price: $8/scout, $5/adult, $5/siblings (we ask to have at least 1 adult for every 5 scouts in attendance).

History Hike Patch

Ever wonder what life was like for boys in the late 1800s? This patch encourages scouts of all levels to tour the museum and investigate the daily life of pioneer and Victorians boys. The tour will lead you through multiple buildings and includes the instructions and supplies for various hands-on activities. This tour is self-guided, however all materials and information are provided when you check in. Tour must be booked in advanced.

Animal Antics Patch

Our Village is full of the sites, sounds, and even smells of life on the prairie. This self-guided tour will teach your scouts about the history of our animals breeds as well as basics our their care. Animals had many purposes in the 1800s, can you discover them all?

Badge workshop days are rain or shine.
