Scout Programs

CourtDays2018 - 37

As both a historic site and county park, Historic Hanna’s Town is a unique place for Scouts to discover the world around them and where they can make a difference. Through our programs and volunteer opportunities, Scouts can foster important individual and interpersonal skills such as leadership, teamwork, and care for history, the environment, and their community.
