Archives & History

Archives & History Program Center
in honor of Diane Tipton

Girl Scouts Nation’s Capital has two Archives & History Program Centers where girls can explore the rich history of Girl Scouting in our region. 

Stay connected to the Archive Committe blog, the Girl Scout History Project.  

Girl Scouts of all ages can register for workshops to work on their Girl Scout Way badge. Girls will have the opportunity to learn about our Council’s history through hands-on activities and by exploring our extensive collection that represents who were are and where we came from. See vintage uniforms, view some of our oldest badges and handbooks and watch the very first video about Girl Scouts, The Golden Eaglet. All Girl Scouts will receive a patch for attending the program.    

To register for a program at Frederick or Winchester, visit our events calendar.
