posted Sep 22, 2017, 1:30 PM by Pack 4 Webmaster   [ updated Sep 25, 2017, 5:30 PM ]

Join your fellow Scouts and step back into history for a day and overnight in New England in 1830!

On Saturday, November 4, we're headed to Old Sturbridge Village to participate in Scout Day and a Hop into History Overnight. If you've never been to Old Sturbridge Village, be prepared for a wonderful indoor and outdoor experience, complete with re-enactments of life and experiences from the 1830s. See them making pottery, running the bank and preparing the muskets. Visit the blacksmith, tinsmith, and take a wagon ride. Check out reviews from TripAdvisor.

Families can sign up to attend Scout Day or both Scout Day and the Hop Into History Overnight. 

Scout Day - Saturday, November 4

This is a great opportunity for Scouts who might not want the full overnight experience, but who want to participate in a Scouting event. While we won't attend as a full Pack, consider reaching out to your den mates or friends and taking the adventure through OSV together.

Cost: $14/per Scout; $14/1st adult; all other adults pay full price admission ($28); additional children pay child's admission ($14)

Note: In addition to the typical visitor OSV experience, OSV will also be running hands-on workshops geared specifically to Scout badges. Pre-registration for the workshops is required and will cost an additional $5-10 per Scout. We will send the list of these workshops when they become available so that Pack families can register for them on your own.
