Boy And Girl Scout Troops Can Earn Exclusive Patch By Completing Educational Tour
The Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame now offers a program for Boy and Girl Scout troops that awards them an exclusive Packers helmet patch that can be added to their uniform after successful completion of a tour.
"We enjoy visits from various groups in the Hall of Fame, and the opportunity to connect with scout troops in an educational and meaningful way, and to offer something unique to their patch program was very exciting for us," said Krissy Zegers, Packers Hall of Fame and Stadium Tours manager. "We worked with a couple of local troops to learn more about their programs and were able to put together a program that can be used by all the troops as they come through."
Scout troops have two options for the program, completing an educational guidebook or following a Packers-themed scavenger hunt.
The guidebook, "What's Your Game Plan for becoming a Pro?" is Hall of Fame staff's successful educational curriculum that is popular with school groups. A key component of the guidebook builds on teamwork lessons throughout Packers history. Teambuilding is the newest piece of the Hall's educational curriculum.
The scavenger hunt contains 13 questions based on characteristics of scouting, such as trustworthiness, loyalty, helpfulness and kindness. A characteristic is defined, linked to the Packers by a key moment or figure, and then a mission is given to identify the moment or figure in a specific area of the Hall.
After completing the tour and the guidebook or scavenger hunt, troop members are awarded patches upon their departure. Visits often include a Stadium Tour as well.
The program is focused on Boy and Girl Scout troops, but also can be used by Cub Scout troops. Scout troops from Wisconsin and surrounding states are among the groups that visit the Packers Hall of Fame.
