Girl Scout groups of all ages are invited to join us for a day exclusively reserved for them. Spend a day at Fort Ticonderoga and take part in a series of programs designed for Girl Scouts.
During the day scouts can learn about the French troops who helped build Fort Carillon (Ticonderoga) in the fall of 1755. Interacting with these French soldiers, girls can ask about the life of an 18th-century soldier. What did he eat? Where did he sleep? What did he wear? Where did his clothes come from?
Throughout the day scouts can explore the Fort and museum exhibitions. They can take guided tours, learning about the Fort’s history, and observe musket demonstrations. They can visit the historic trades shop, where shoes and clothing are produced by the Fort’s staff, and learn about the global economy of the 1700s.
The King’s Garden is also open for exploration, as is the Heroic Maze, A Corn Maze Adventure!
To register your Girl Scout to participate, please call Nancy LaVallie, Group Tour Coordinator at Fort Ticonderoga, at 518-585-2821. The cost is $7 per Girl Scout. Adults pay the adult group rate of $12.
