Program Spotlight: Laura Ingalls Wilder Patch

Here at the Raupp Museum, we have a strong affection for all things Girl Scout. We love seeing the enthusiastic faces that grace our galleries, and avidly watch for that magical time of the year when Thin Mints and Samoas appear. In honor of Girl Scout week, we are highlighting our Girl Scout programs.

Girls will have a chance to explore what life was like as a pioneer on the prairie, during the Laura Ingalls Wilder Program. Scouts will learn about how to pack a covered wagon, bake bread from scratch, and hand-sew their own aprons, while enjoying one of the all-time classics of children’s literature. This program is available from January to May for Brownie and Junior Scouts. Fee of $9 per scout covers material costs and includes a patch.
