(Please read the introductory section about Candle Tea.)
Scout tours, for both boys and girls, are an abbreviated version of the public Candle Tea. The special “Scout Tea” includes the candle-making demonstration and viewing the putz. Each guest – both scouts and accompanying adults – receives a lovefeast candle and is served a Moravian cookie in the kitchen of the historic Single Brothers' House.
In the Brothers' House, built more than 250 years ago, scouts learn about the life of the early settlers of Salem, the earliest public water system in the United States, and how the young people in Salem were educated and the older boys learned a trade.
Scout tours are by reservation only. A maximum of 35 persons are allowed entry at one time by fire code.
Scout tour dates for 2018 will be announced and reservations will open in mid-September 2018.
We look forward to seeing you at Candle Tea!
