Programs for Girl Scouts

We love Girl Scouts at the Peoria PlayHouse, and we currently offer two different ways for your troop to have fun with us! You can visit and earn a badge, or just explore the museum as a troop. A 5:1 scout to adult ratio is required for all programs. Call 323-6894 for more information on booking your visit.

Visit and Earn a Badge

$12 per scout, patch and admission included. Free admission for one leader.  Additional chaperones are $5 each.

Troops may earn a Daisy Petal of their choice, the Brownie Home Scientist Try-It, the Junior Animal Habitats Badge, or the Cadette Woodworker Patch. Programs are 60-90 minutes long, and include time in the exhibits and the classroom, as well as unlimited use of the PlayHouse before and after your program.

Visit Only, 60 minutes

$5 per scout, special PlayHouse button for your sash or vest included. Free admission for one leader.  Additional chaperones are $3 each.

Scouts may choose to visit the museum at a special group rate by booking a PlayHouse Adventure Fieldtrip (see School and Group Programs for more information). No classroom time or badge-work is included in this option.

A 5:1 scout to adult ratio is required for all scout programs.

Daisy: Petal

In this unique program, your troop can earn a petal of your choice, with a custom-designed program, just for you!

Brownie: Home Scientist

Girls will experiment with various areas of science within our exhibits and in the classroom: Magnification and magnetism in our Sci-Lab, density and static electricity in our water table, basic laws of physics in Motion Commotion, and finally, thermodynamics, as we wind down the session with a snack.

Junior: Animal Habitats

While exploring our water table, girls will learn all about local wildlife in and around the Illinois River, and share what they’ve learned with a creative performance in our theater. Later, we’ll move to our RealTools construction space to create a home and a snack for a feathered friend.

Cadette: Woodworker

Your troop will have the opportunity to take over our RealTools space, while they practice using and creating with a variety of hand and power tools. Each girl will have an opportunity to make a unique project that incorporate all of their new carpentry skills!
