- About Us
Van Cortlandt House Museum offers group programs outside of regular school hours. We enjoy working with Scout Troops, Home Schooling Parents, YM and YH organizations, and church groups to develop and schedule programs tailored to an individual group’s needs. For example, we have worked with a Girl Scout Troop out of Visitation School to create an activity where the girls learned the basics of baking over a campfire, from helping to collect tinder and start the fire, to measuring and mixing the ingredients for a batch of cornbread. The girls gained knowledge and experience toward earning their Junior Camper badge all while having fun. There are many ways in which a visit, project, or program can help scouts earn badges, achieve special honors such as Eagle Scout, and fulfill community service requirements. For more information, to set up an appointment, or to discuss developing a special program, contact Van Cortlandt House Museum’s staff at email@example.com.
Our Mission:The National Society of The Colonial Dames of America actively promotes our national heritage through historic preservation, patriotic service, and educational projects.
