Scouting Programs
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.
