Scout Scavenger Hunt

Attention, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts grades K-6! Earn The Hermitage scout patch by adventuring through our scout scavenger hunt with your group.

The scavenger hunt leads troops through the visitor center, museum, mansion and farmland. Two separate lists are provided to accommodate all the ages of children in the group. Scout leaders will determine how much of the lists to include in the hunt.

To earn the patch, leaders will assist scouts in finding personal items such as Rachel Jackson’s necklace or elements of nature such as a ginkgo tree. Scouts use their senses of sight, sound, smell and touch to track down as many items as possible from the list.
