Scouting Day 2014
Event At A Glance
Calling All Scouts!
Come to Monticello and learn about Thomas Jefferson's love of gadgets and design! In addition to enjoying a special tour of Jefferson’s world-famous house, scouts and troop leaders are invited to explore Monticello’s hands-on Griffin Discovery Room and various museum exhibits. Indoor and outdoor activity stations (open 10AM – 3PM) will highlight the many uses and playful applications of technology and neo-classical architecture at Jefferson's iconic home, Monticello. A Heritage Chocolate demonstration and tasting will delight the taste buds. This year we are working with the Scholar's Lab at the University of Virginia to add demonstrations on 3D printing and (weather permitting) "Do-It-Yourself Aerial Photography."
Programming for Scouting Day is geared for scouts of all ages. All scouts will receive a Monticello patch for participating in the day’s activities. Bring your own lunch to eat in the picnic area or purchase from the Monticello café. Please wear Girl Scout USA or Boy Scouts of America uniform or identifier. Tickets are non-refundable. Pre-registration is strongly suggested.
Please note: When purchasing Scouting Day tickets, you will be asked to reserve your group’s timed house tour slot. You must arrive at Monticello at least 30 minutes prior to your selected House Tour time to avoid missing your reserved tour. A Scouting Day ticket will give you access to activity stations any time between 10AM and 3PM; feel free to drop in before or after your morning or afternoon tour.
All minors must be accompanied by an adult chaperone.
