Volunteering at the GSOFCT Museum
We are currently looking for volunteers and older girls (Girl Scout Cadettes, Seniors, or Ambassadors) to be docents for the museum. Share your love of history, tell Girl Scout stories, or lead an activity. Training will be provided. Please email email@example.com if you are interested.
Service Unit Historians
We're looking for Girl Scout Seniors and Ambassadors to collect the history of their Service Unit as it is happening! Girls will collect information about Service Unit events, people in the Service Unit, and much more. This information will be stored in the GSOFCT Museum for Girl Scouts in the future. See this flyer for more information.
Bring history to your troop meeting or local event! The GSOFCT Historical Committee has created several suitcases with various uniforms, accessories, and handbooks. There is no fee to borrow these suitcases, but they must be picked up from and returned to the North Haven Service Center. Borrowers are held responsible for the contents.
Reservations should be made through the Request to Borrow Historic Items form as far in advance as possible and during times of high demand, may not be able to be met. There are two types of suitcases: General Suitcases with uniforms that may be carefully tried on for indoor meetings or fashion shows, and Parade Suitcases (very limited in quantity) with uniforms that may be worn during parades. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on borrowing these or other historical items.
