2023 Junior Guides

Volunteer to be a Junior Guide during the 2023 season!

Students who have graduated from 6th grade through college volunteer are assistants and historical characters at the many events at Gammelgården Museum of Scandia during the spring and summer seasons.


Junior Guides participate in Opening Weekend, Immigrant for a Day, Midsommardagen, Girls & Dolls Tea Parties, Dalapalooza, and day camps during the summer.


They can learn gardening skills by working in Gammelgården’s many gardens; assist with maintaining the bluebird house trail; and create videos for TikTok, Instagram, and Facebook.


For those wanting to volunteer during the school year, there are weekend events throughout the fall and winter including the Taco Daze parade, craft workshops, gingerbread house decorating, Annie’s Coffee Parties, and Luciadagen.


If this sounds like something you would enjoy, email Ann Rinkenberger at media@gammelgardenmuseum.org to sign up as a Junior Guide and get more information. Also, make sure you sign up to attend one of the orientation sessions (either Saturday, April 22nd from 2-3:30 p.m. or Monday, May 1st from 5-6:30 p.m.).
