Special Programs Just for Scouts!

 

Scout Days

Scouts and their families receive special reduced rates on a Combination Pass (Plimoth Plantation and either Mayflower II or The Plimoth Grist Mill). 

Students/Scouts: $13.68

Adults: $21.56


Game Day: Especially for Scouts!
 March 28th 

 

It wasn’t all work and no play in the 17th century. Scouts can discover the wide array of sports and games played by people living throughout New England in the 1600s. Games helped children develop coordination, reflexes and depth perception – all skills they would need in their adult lives. Try your hand at all sorts of games, and compare them to the games you play today!
