Discover San Agustin
Girl Scout troops, families and the public are invited to visit St. Augustine and take a step back in time with local Girl Scouts!
Girls in middle and high school apply and are selected to be tour guides for the day and teach visitors about life in 18th-century St. Augustine at the Fountain of Youth. Guests learn basketry, pottery, cooking, games and more!
The San Agustin reenactment event is held annually at the Fountain of Youth in St. Augustine. The 2018 event will be held on Saturday, March 24 from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Some of our very own sixth and seventh grade Girl Scout docents were handpicked to serve as your tour guides for the day and will help you take a step back in time by demonstrating exactly how young ladies lived in 18th century St. Augustine.
Take part in pastimes of another time period and imagine yourself in history by visiting hands-on and listen-and-learn stations including: basket weaving, broom making, candle making, pottery, lucets, embroidery, games and so much more. You will even get to take part in a special cannon firing and musket demonstration.
Walk in the footsteps of young colonial-era women by traveling back in time to experience St. Augustine in the 1700s! Sew and wear your own period clothing, use wooden spoons to eat authentic open-fire meals and sleep in marquee shelters while sharing the unique experience with your Girl Scout sisters! Learn new skills like broom-, candle- or basket-making, play colonial-era games and teach the public about life in the 1740s. Test your ability to adapt to life in the 18th-century as you share what you have learned with hundreds of visitors at the Fountain of Youth in St. Augustine.
Girls in grades 6-8 and 10-12 are encouraged to apply to be a docent. All forms and application fees are due by Dec. 20, 2017.
