Field Trip

Attention scout leaders:

Looking for a fun and engaging program for your next scout meeting? Plan a visit to the Upcountry History Museum – Furman University!

Make the most out of your visit by scheduling a workshop with one of the museum’s talented docents. Workshops are $7 per scout and include admission to the museum, hands-on workshops related to a scout badge, and a museum patch. Scout leaders are free and 1 additional adult chaperone is free with every 10 scouts. Additional adults are regular admission.
