Scout Day at the Georgia State Capitol
Georgia State Capitol | March 7, 2024
Scouting prepares young people to be good citizens. Spend the day witnessing first-hand the political process in Georgia. Take on the Capitol Scavenger Hunt. Watch your legislators recognize your Scouts from the House Gallery. And have a chance to ask actual representatives your most pressing questions!
The Capitol will provide a note explaining the activities the Scouts participated in during the day. Scouts and family may arrive from 8:00 am-8:30 am. The program will begin at 9:00 AM and will end at 11:00 AM. Please check with your school's administrative staff to determine if this will qualify as an excused absence. Registration costs for this event will be $5 for each participant. Each Scout that registers will receive a patch and a participation certificate.
What You Need to Know
Scout uniforms are preffered. Adult leaders may also come in uniform.
Room 122 (on the floor you enter the building on) will be available for a coat drop. We prefer that Scouts’ uniforms not be covered by coats, jackets, etc.
Chick-fil-A sandwiches will be available in Room 125. Please take one per person.
All Scouts will gather at 8:45am at the South wing steps (second floor). Once you pass security, turn to the right, and take the steps immediately to your right up to the second floor.
