Youth programs

The Deer Valley Petroglyph Preserve offers a variety of youth programs throughout the year for all ages. Our event days in the Spring and Fall feature demonstrations, hands on activities and presentations that every member of your family will enjoy and learn from (see Events pages for more details). Other youth programs include scout days, and special programming days throughout the year.

Girl Scout badge days

The Deer Valley Petroglyph Preserve is a program partner of the Girls Scouts of America Arizona Cactus Pine Council. Throughout the year we offer patch and badge days in person and virtually.

The archaeological patch days take place over the course of an entire day and feature informational lectures, hands-on research activities and crafts, a tour of the museum and petroglyphs. Patch days are ideal for older Brownies and Juniors.
