General Information

Troops are responsible for collecting permission slips and meeting the girl to adult ratio.

Girls attending individually must attend with an adult.

If you are attending a family event and a sibling or friend will be participating in the event, please register that individual.

If a family event is overnight, males can only sleep in quarters with other males or with their family members.

Girls are encouraged to wear their Girl Scout vest, sash or tunic to the event. We encourage girls to wear their uniform components proudly.

A tag-along is any child that does not meet the gender or grade level requirements for the event (siblings, friends, etc.) Tag-alongs detract from the needs and interests of girls participating in the event; therefore, tag-alongs are not permitted to attend the events unless the event is designated as a family event and open to all family members.

Girl Scouts embraces girls of all abilities, backgrounds, and heritage. Each girl – without regard to socioeconomic status, race, physical or cognitive ability, ethnicity, primary language, or religion – is an equal and valued member of the group. Every reasonable effort will be made to accommodate the special needs of all participants to ensure all girls can participate.

Participants attending the event with special dietary or allergies must be sure to complete the registration information pertaining to this. Please be sure to notify us of any circumstances prior to the event.
