Events  2019-2020 Year

Troop Leaders - We understand that it will be impossible for you to attend all the events offered for your grade-level; however, we need to ensure that all girls are offered the opportunity to attend all events.  In cases where the Leader is unable to attend, co-leaders will be required to attend the event with their Girl Scouts, ensuring that Safety-Wise numbers are met.

Parents - Please note that the registration deadlines listed on this page are the deadlines for the troop leaders to turn in the completed registration forms.  Please check with your daughter's troop leader for specific due dates for each event as her dates will most likely differ to allow her time to compile all of the details necessary.

Troop Leaders - Please note that you should bring the individual girl permission slips with you to the events.  You need to just turn in the registration form (with names of girls and adults attending) and payment by the registration deadline date.  You should also have the girls' completed health cards with inked parent signature present with you at all events and meetings.  Health Card
