Each year in Spring, Girl Scouts take over historic St. Augustine!
Girl Scout docents travel back in time to reenact life in 18th and 19th century St. Augustine. The San Agustin and Ximenez-Fatio activities are made possible through partnerships with the City of St. Augustine’s Department of Heritage Tourism, Fountain of Youth and the National Society of the Colonial Dames of America.

Learn new skills such as broom, candle and basket making and apprentice with one of the museum's blacksmiths, leather workers, or carpenters. Test your ability to adapt to life in the 18th century as you share what you've learned with hundreds of visitors of the Fountain of Youth in downtown St. Augustine.
