Scout It Out: Girl Scouts

Fee: $35/scout (includes Journey Award)

Leaders and chaperones are free

Daisy, Brownie, Junior and Cadette Girl Scouts will have the opportunity to complete one of their Journeys in a day-long program. Bring a sack lunch; beverages and an afternoon snack will be provided. Each troop should have leaders or chaperones with the group as per GSA policy; an adult is not needed for each scout. A scout attending on her own should have an adult partner.

Brownies will go on a Wonders of Water Journey. They will learn about the water cycle, where our water comes from and ways to use it wisely, explore the nature center pond—dipping for the small animals that live there and hike to the stream to observe the power of moving water.
