Trail End Museum docent training @ Trail End State Historic Site
Apr 7 @ 9:00 am – 11:00 am

SHERIDAN — Just in time for the 2015 school tour season, the Trail End State Historic Site is offering free docent training to anyone interested in becoming a Trail End tour guide.

This year’s docent training is scheduled for Tuesday, April 7, from 9-11 a.m. at the Kendrick Mansion.

Trained docents offer information, encourage student interaction and critical thinking skills.

The requirement for being a Trail End docent — other than a basic interest in the site and its history — is flexibility.

The Trail End won’t set a schedule for docents but will ask them to come in when there is a tour or special event scheduled, Site Superintendent Cynde Georgen said. Most of Trail End’s school tours are on weekdays, which is why the training is set for a weekday.

In addition to exhibit-specific training, every docent will receive a Docent & Volunteer Handbook. This comprehensive guide to Trail End and the Kendrick family provides tips and pointers on giving tours to groups of all ages, plus school tour objectives and learning goals.

While learning goals are important, enthusiasm and a welcoming attitude are more important.

“To promote a lifelong interest in history, we need to make a visit to Trail End exciting for these kids,” Georgen said. “We can’t be too academic; we want repeat visitors who equate Trail End with pleasure.”

To sign up for the upcoming docent training workshop, call the Trail End State Historic Site at 674-4589.

The Trail End State Historic Site is located in Kendrick Mansion at 400 Clarendon Avenue in Sheridan.
