Derby Day for Girl Scouts of All Ages!


Due to popular demand, we have opened up a second session for this program! The morning session is completely full. This session starts at 1PM.

Celebrate and join in on the fanfare of the Kentucky Derby by creating your own wooden race car and festive derby hat at Factur on May 6th! Register now!

You’ll create your own fascinator or Debry hat with help from designer, Melissa Cantrell, VP of Product Design for Scala headwear, which is an official headwear brand sold at Churchill Downs on Kentucky Derby Day! All participants will also have the opportunity build a wooden car and test it out in a race, just like the girls in this awesome STEAM partnership between Girl Scouts and Ford!

You’ll also be invited to take a tour of Factur, which is a one-of-a-kind fabrication laboratory and makers space in Orlando. Factur serves as a creative home in which people work, learn and build a community rooted in science, art and technology.

This is an exclusive event for Girl Scouts – you must be a registered Girl Scout member to participate. Kindly note, you must arrive promptly at 1:00pm for check-in to begin the activities.

Cost includes materials needed to design and make your fabulous creations. Each participant will be able to take home their hats and race cars and will also earn a fun patch for the day.

Feel free to come dressed in your best derby attire!

The last day to register for this program is May 1st, however if a minimum of 25 people are not registered by Tuesday, April 25th, this program may be subject to cancellation.
