Scout Days

Members of Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA, and Girl Scouts of the USA can join the National Constitution Center for educational and engaging programs—designed just for them! Our Scout  programs feature exhibit tours and interactive trivia games, plus Q and A sessions with judges, law enforcement officers, park ranges, elected officials, and more! 

Virtual Scout Programs

This winter, the National Constitution Center will offer a series of special virtual programs, exclusively available for participants of Girl Scouts of the USA and Scouts BSA! Each session will explore a different theme—including the founding era, law and government, expanding equality, and elections—and feature interactive programs and live tours, all designed to complement the GSUSA and BSA badge curriculums! 

Sessions are presented through a secure Zoom webinar, and can be accessed from a home computer, laptop, or phone. If you have any questions, please contact us at [email protected]. We look forward to seeing you at the programs!
