Brownie, Cubs, Guides and Scout Badge Completion Programs

We have many options to help Brownies, Cubs, Guides, and Scouts meet the requirements of badges that coincide with the First Nations Heritage and related topics. We can best meet your needs with an individualized program through consultation with Museum staff.

We can also visit your regular meetings with an Outreach Program.

For most Brownies, Cubs, Scouts, and Guides, we suggest a tour based around our General Tour (includes artifact handling), which introduces participants to Canada’s First Peoples, plus the choice of one or two craft or activity workshops. These will meet many of your badge requirements and fit into the average meeting length.

Workshop choices include:

Craft workshops:

  • Personal Totems craft (clay)
  • Pottery (clay)
  • Beaded Bracelets
  • Woodland Style Painting
  • Medicine Pouch Craft
  • Wampum Bracelets
  • Quill Writing
  • Dreamcatchers (Guides and Scouts only and $1/per child extra)

Activity based workshops:

  • Context in Archaeology  (aka: How archaeologists draw inferences from their excavations)
  • Fur Trade
  • Underwater Archaeology
  • Early Societies
  • Traditional Games

2-2.5 hours – $6-$7/child (leaders are free of charge)
