York County Heritage Trust offers interactive tours and programs at all of our sites for Boy Scout and Girl Scout groups. We can tailor programs to each troop's individual needs.
In addition to our interactive tours, we offer Girl Scouts the opportunity to earn a White Rose pin by learning about colonial life in York. Programs appropriate for Daisies through Ambassadors are available. All programs start with an orientation to the Colonial Complex, including a tour of the 1741 Golden Plough Tavern building and the house that was home to Revolutionary War general, Horatio Gates, during his stay in York. Troops will choose their hands-on projects from options including candle dipping, colonial games, and Pennsylvania German crafts. Contact the Education Department for more information.
Date: June 22 through 26
Fee: $130 for members of YCHT or York County Department of Parks and Recreation, $150 for non members

The York County Department of Parks and Recreation is partnering with the York County Heritage Trust to offer an Archeology Camp for students aged 10-13 at Horn Farm Center from June 22 through June 26. Campers should be dropped off at Horn Farm Center at 9:30 am, and picked up at 3:30. Campers will learn how professional archeologists conduct a dig, and then work with a supervisor to use those methods to search for artifacts at a historic location. Because this is an actual "dig", we don't know what they will find until they uncover something! They will also learn how to record what they find, and what happens to artifacts that are recovered. Special programs and activities that relate to the history of the Horn Farm property will put what they find into perspective so they get a fuller understanding of the history field.
