Seneca Falls, NY - Women’s Rights National Historical Park is happy to announce a Centennial Night in the Museum for Girl Scouts on March 12, 2016. Our goal is to have 100 Girls Scouts earn their National Park Service Girl Scout Patch before the National Park Service’s Centennial Anniversary on August 25, 2016. The Girl Scout’s sleepover will begin with Elizabeth Cady Stanton greeting the scouts, speaking with Mrs. Stanton about her life, and learning about the first women’s rights convention held here in Seneca Falls in 1848. Rangers will present an educational program specifically tailored to connect the first women’s rights convention to the Girls Scout’s Journeys program. The scouts will complete an action project and earn a National Park Service Girl Scout Patch. Rangers will also educate the scouts on the National Park Service’s Centennial Anniversary and discuss the variety of careers within the National Park Service. Most importantly, there will be a ton of fun!

Women’s Rights National Historical Park creates educational and entertaining programming for children year round. Throughout the year, we host special events for kids, including children’s performers and educational activities! Kids can visit Women’s Rights National Historical Park and complete a Junior Ranger book and a treasure hunt. They can play 19th C dress up in our Junior Ranger Corner, and explore our Underground Railroad classroom which includes crafts, games, and a movie! All of our programming and events are free and open to the public.
