Scouts and Clubs

Calling all Scouts, 4-H, Camp Fire, Boys and Girls Clubs and other youth groups!

Come partner with Shawnee Town 1929’s education staff to help your troop complete badges, hold activities and programs, and utilize our historic buildings and artifacts. Our museum site is the perfect backdrop for a variety of history, scholarship, and citizenship-related programming. Our collaboration can range from one day to year-long. The sky is the limit here at Shawnee Town, so bring us your ideas!

Some past Scouts and Clubs collaborative activities utilizing our museum and staff have included Eagle Scout projects, citizenship badges, architecture badges, landscaping, needle pointing, community service hours, Shawnee Town’s immigration program, and cooking in our historic Hart-Decaeny Farmhouse.​
