Governor's Palace, three historic homes, gardens, and the North Carolina History Center
In 2013, Tryon Palace takes a look at how food has defined our cultures and our traditions. This year's Girl Scout Day will explore the food and fitness of early Americans and learn how they can teach us to have healthier lifestyles today - all while spending a fun-filled day immersed in the past! The day includes hands-on activities, games, crafts and tours of the Governor's Palace, three historic homes, gardens and the North Carolina History Center. Bring a picnic lunch and enjoy this special Girl Scout Day at North Carolina's first capitol. Activities are designed for school-age girls; some activities may have a minimum age requirement. Craft activities will take place from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Each troop will be given take-home information on how the program can be used towards earning badges and post-event activities to continue the fun.
Call (252) 639-3524 before Thursday, February 28th to register and get the early registration rate. Tickets will also be available at the North Carolina History Center's Ticket Desk the day of the event for $14 for students and $20 for adults.
