Girl Scouts Get the Scoop - Day at the Newseum (J, C, S, A)
Feb 16, 2013 - Feb 16, 2013
Age Groups: J,C,S,A (click for more information)
Nation's Capital and Central Maryland councils have partnered with the Newseum to offer an exciting day of journalistic exploration and discovery at the Newseum in Washington, DC.
See a section of the Berlin Wall, read the day's news on the front pages of newspapers from around the world and view a collection of Pulitzer Prize photos.
Tickets will be mailed in advance and troops can arrive at any time, spending as much or as little time as you wish visiting with us. Activities will be ongoing throughout the day but the event format will allow girls to take part in programming at their own pace and based on their interests.
Cost is $8 per person (several dollars less than the regular museum group rate) and includes museum entry and a pass allowing access to special tours, games, presentations and craft activities, with an emphasis on the role of women in the news, the impact of youth leaders and the Girl Scouts. Girls will also have the opportunity to share what they've learned and earn prizes. An optional event patch can be ordered for $1 each.
Registration is closed.

Can’t make it to the Newseum on Girl Scout Day? Consider visiting us as you celebrate Girl Scout World Thinking Day. The 2013 World Thinking Day theme is: girls worldwide say "together we can save children's lives.”
As you check out the Newseum’s exhibits, think about what issues are important to you and how you can use the news and media as ways to communicate with one another about children’s issues.
Continue your global adventure by picking up a free Global Scavenger Hunt Passport at the Information Desk and learn about Elizabeth Cochrane’s alter ego.
