The legacy of Elvis Presley continues as the Scouts of the Mid-South visit Graceland. Most visiting for the first time will see what kind of impact Elvis had on music, film, and especially the hearts and souls of countless people. Graceland receives numerous guests and fans from all corners of the globe, all year round, and of all ages and generations. We believe no one is ever too young to become a fan of Elvis.
Join hundreds of Mid South scouts as they tour Elvis Presley’s Graceland mansion on a special day custom made for Scouts of all ages.
A visit to this National Historic Landmark on March 6, 2010 will offer area Scouts the chance to earn achievements toward ranks or pin/belt loop/merit badge requirements in the following areas: Art, Music, Collections, Citizenship, American Heritage and Journalism.
A special $15 ticket for Scouts, siblings and adults includes a Graceland mansion tour, Elvis Presley Car Museum tour, Lisa Marie Airplane tour, and a tour to our newest exhibit, Elvis Presley: Fashion King. A collectible “Scouts Rock at Graceland” patch will also be available for $3 each. Scouts are welcome to bring a snack lunch. Concessions will also be available throughout Graceland Plaza.
Scout achievement activities are available 9AM—2PM and Graceland mansion tours are available from 9AM-5PM. Tickets will be held for pickup at the Graceland Ticket Pavilion beginning 8:30am, Saturday, March 6, 2010.A portion of the ticket price will be donated to the Boy Scouts of America Chickasaw Council and the Girl Scouts Heart of the South.
