Scout Programs
We've created a wide variety of FREE programs for Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts. Programs are offered at the Museum of Westward Expansion and the Old Courthouse and are facilitated by national park service rangers. In addition, you'll receive a user-friendly Leader Activity Guide to help you prepare your scouts for their visit, provide information on meeting badge requirements, and suggested pre- and post-visit activities. Reservations for scout programs must be made at least a month in advance. 1-877-982-1410 or 314-982-1410
