Join us at Camp Tanasi for Girl Scout University, where Girl Scout volunteers will come together to gain knowledge, develop new skills, meet new people, and have lots of fun! The weekend retreat begins Friday evening and ends on Sunday morning. Those who can’t make the full weekend are welcome to participate in the Saturday sessions only.

Saturday Only: If you are coming to the Saturday only sessions, the events begin at 8:30am and the day will end at 4:00pm

 

***IMPORTANT: Participants will choose a track to follow on Saturday. There are 3 tracks to choose from, each of which will be a “team” for the day and for a mystery activity in the evening. This registration page is for the Environmental Stewardship track ONLY. Please return to the events calendar to see the remaining 2 tracks (Leadership and Relationships). You can only register for ONE track.
