Jr. Ranger Program at Maggie L. Walker National Historic Site
Maggie Walker devoted her life to civil rights advancement, economic empowerment, and educational opportunities for Jim Crow-era African Americans and women. As a bank president, newspaper editor, and fraternal leader, Walker served as an inspiration of pride and progress. Today, Walker’s home is preserved as a tribute to her enduring legacy of vision, courage, and determination. Mrs. Walker was also instrumental in helping to create the first African-American troop south of the Mason-Dixon Line right here in our council! In this program, Girl Scouts will explore the story of Maggie L. Walker and learn more about the country’s history, as well as local Girl Scout history. A series of activities for all ages will lead to the Junior Ranger patch for girls.
Please plan to arrive 15 minutes early to secure parking and to register before the program starts. Registration fee includes a Junior Ranger workbook and patch.
This is a girl-only event, no tagalongs. Registered adults need to stay on-site to meet safety ratios. Girl Scouts cannot be ‘dropped off’ and should be under adult supervision at all times (troop leader or parent).
