Brownies, Cubs, Guides, and Scouts Badge Completion Programs

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

Please note that at present we are only able to book Girl Guides and Scouts programs on Saturdays and Sundays within operating hours (10am-4:30pm). 

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:

  • Pottery (clay)
  • Quill Writing
  • Maize, beans, and squash drawing activity & bean planting.
  • Dioramas

Activity based workshops:

  • Context in Archaeology (i.e. how archaeologists draw inferences from their excavations)
  • Underwater Archaeology
  • Traditional Games
  • The village and the resources (thematic map building)

Cost:

2 hours – $8/child

3 hours – $10/child

(leaders are free of charge)
