Come spend a long day (9am til 9pm) at Camp Timber Ridge bonding with other Girl Scouts and developing leadership skills through guided journey activities. During the day the girls will complete activites around the journey they select with 1 outdoor actiivty at some point in the weekend that their staff assigned to their journey is certified to do.  We can not guarentee which activiites each group will do depends on staffing, girls attending and weather. Girls will complete all requirements up to the Take Action project. The Take Action project will be up to them to complete on their own time.  Each troop/girl will be asked to select their journey 2 weeks prior to the event. The options by Girl Scout level include:

Brownies- World of Girls or Brownie Quest

Juniors- Agent of Change, Get Moving, Amuse

Cadettes- Amaze, Media or Breathe

Each Journey must have a minimum of 4 girls to be offered if we do not reach that minimum then girls will be asked to select another journey as soon as we are able to confirm all troops/girls have made their selections. Might be as close as the Tuesday before the event. 

Event Fee includes 2 meals (lunch and dinner on Saturday), snacks, camp staff, and activity supplies

Girls are expected to provide the Journey Book and purchase their own Journey Awards. Both will be sold at camp. Journey Awards are discounted at camp to $4.22 and Journey books are regular price at $7.42.

Adult supervision is required for Brownie and  Junior Girl Scouts. Cadette and above can attend with out adult supervision and will be supervised by other adult troop volunteers and/or camp staff. It is important to note that at Journey Weekends/Days girls are given a good bit of independance when moving from place to place and camp so girls attending with out adults should be able to follow directions and go where instructed and be on time as the camp staff are juggling the girls and the journey program and might have to give them a few minutes of down time to set up an activity. 

Adult Training required: First Aide and CPR if attending as a troop. All adults must be registered Girl Scouts and have successfully completed a background check to attend the event. 

Event Fee: $60.00 girl, $10.00 adult
