WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO ANOTHER GREAT YEAR OF GIRL SCOUT WORKSHOPS!!

​​​​​​​​​​​​

  • Our Girl Scout Workshops help your Girl Scouts complete requirements for their badges and patches.

  • Badges and Patches are included in the registration fee. 

  • Our workshops are open for individual scouts or whole troops. ​
