“Playing the Past” at Plains Conservation Center

Visit Denver Botanic Gardens’ Plains Conservation Center through their One-Day Prairie Perspectives Immersion experience and earn the “Playing the Past” badge for Girl Scout Juniors.

Immerse your Girl Scouts in the challenging perspective of a child growing up in the 1800’s as a Cheyenne Indian or a homesteader. Girls can explore the prairie ecosystem and participate in activities at the homestead and Cheyenne camp, cook a meal, journal, and connect with the cultural history. Overnight portion includes campfire, storytelling, wagon rides on the prairie, and sleeping in the tipis (weather permitting).


  • One-Day Prairie Perspective Immersion, 9 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.: $60 within SCFD / $65 outside SCFD
  • One-Day Prairie Perspectives Plus Optional Overnight ends 9 a.m. the following day: $125 within SCFD / $130 outside SCFD

One adult chaperone admitted free for every five students, additional chaperones are $30 each for the one day program and $60 each for the overnight program. A 50-percent deposit is due at least 30 days prior to program date; full payment is due at least one week pre-program.
