Historic New England's Casey Farm in Saunderstown, Rhode Island, is proud to offer Cub Scout troops affordable educational activities to help scouts reach their goals for obtaining activity, achievement, and elective badges.
Colonial Times
A series of interactive, hands-on activities set in the seventeenth-century Arnold House. Students immerse themselves in early local history in an authentic setting, experiencing history first hand while exploring the Arnold House.
At The Bay
Students learn about fresh and saltwater wetlands and then discover the wide variety of organisms that live in the salt marsh, salt pond, and cobble beach.
On The Farm
