All Girl Scout volunteers deserve one big collective Thank You from all of us. They give freely of their time and themselves to mentor and to fuel girls imagination to think big and dream big. And to make the world and their communities a better place.

After the Annual Meeting Activities

Come join us for S’mores and an archery demonstration immediately following the Annual Council Meeting.

Girls want to be outdoors frequently, and in varied ways. The Girl Scout Research Institute’s More Than S’Mores report found that girls with more frequent and longer-in-duration outdoor experiences are more likely to seek challenges and better prepared to solve problems—qualities that will advance them personally and academically. Participating regularly in outdoor activities also helps girls develop competence, interpersonal skills, and a sense of being able to make a difference for the environment.

And actually being outdoors has similar benefits for adults as well! So plan to stay and enjoy the outdoors with us. We’ll save you a S’more.
