Scouts BSA Sessions:

Citizenship in the Nation Programs
Scouts will explore the meaning of citizenship at educational and interactive programs, including a trivia game and tours of the National Constitution Center and Independence National Historical Park.

Law Programs
All Rise! Scouts will explore the American legal system with a panel discussion featuring legal experts and law enforcement officers. Scouts can participate in this fun and interactive courtroom program, and play the parts of attorneys, witnesses, and even the jury.

American Heritage Programs  
Scouts will explore our nation’s history with special programs, including our popular Road to Freedom Show, which explores events leading up to the Civil War, plus a special panel discussion with historians, museum professionals, and others who have made their careers in American heritage.

Note: National Constitution Center educators, who are registered merit badge counselors, will be available via email the weeks after the event to approve blue cards.

Girl Scouts of the USA Sessions: 

Virtual 19th Amendment Exhibit Tour
As we celebrate the 19th Amendment, the National Constitution Center is offering a special women’s history tour for Girl Scouts of all ages! A question and answer session will follow.

Behind the Ballot Programs
The Behind the Ballot Badge encourages Seniors* to lean about the current election, participate in “Get Out the Vote” efforts, and even plan their own campaigns—the National Constitution Center helps prepare Girl Scouts to tackle this badge by providing historical foundations and constitutional understanding for each Behind the Ballot requirement.

Finding Common Ground Programs
The Finding Common Ground Badge is all about debating different points of view, and reaching compromises. At the National Constitution Center’s Finding Common Ground programs, Cadettes* will explore how people throughout American history, right up through present day courtrooms, resolve conflicts through civil dialogue and healthy debate. 

Inside Government Programs
The National Constitution Center is here to help Juniors* go “Inside Government” by exploring the ins—and outs—of the government! Learn about how the Constitution set up the different branches of our government, and how those branches work together—plus explore the role that “We the People” play in our democracy.

*Note: All Girl Scouts are welcome to attend all programs, regardless of level.
