Girl Scouts of the USA Visiting the Lighthouse
If your Girl Scout group is more than 10 people you will need a scheduled time. You should allow an hour and a half for the visit.
It is important you come at your scheduled time. Volunteers and staff have planned for your arrival. Please call if you are going to be late.
Download and print educational documentation on the Light Station and Museum. The Tybee Island Light Station will not provide this information once you arrive. You will need to download and print all copies necessary for your group. You may make as many copies as you need. The documentation will be provided in different formats for your convenience. These are large document files. To obtain a free MS Word viewer, go to Microsoft.com and download the free viewer here. Files are self-extracting zip files that are executable.
Guided Tours are available for groups of twenty five or more. It is likely a volunteer will greet your group when you arrive. The earlier you make your reservation the better. The Lighthouse stands 154 ft. high and there is no elevator. Groups of children need 2 adults for every 10 children.
