Apply for the Girl Scout Leadership Institute

The Girl Scout Council of the Southern Appalachians invites girls ages 14 and older to apply to attend the Girl Scout Leadership Institute in Salt Lake City, Utah, October 16-20, 2014.

The Girl Scout Leadership Institute is part of Girl Scouts of the USA’s National Convention. However, girls who attend the institute are not part of the council’s official delegation to the convention and will not have voting rights.

GSLI girls will meet with other Girl Scouts from all over the world for a collection of classes and learning experiences focusing on everything from fashion to engineering. Girls select their own classes and tracks. They will also participate in the national gatherings and see the Hall of Exhibits at the national convention.

All expenses will be paid for GSLI girls, and the trip will include an extra day for sight-seeing. This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!

Return the GSLI application by the March 15 deadline.

High School Girl Retreat

May 16-18

Save the date! High school girls are invited for a fun weekend at Camp Adahi May 16-18! We’ve reserved a barn full of horses for morning rides, we’ll cook our favorite campfire meals, and enjoy hanging out together. This is a great opportunity to get to know other Seniors and Ambassadors from across the council.

The weekend is being planned by girls participating in the SALT (Serving and Leading Together) girl advisory group. High school Girl Scouts are invited to join the group on the first Thursday of each month at our service centers in Johnson City, Knoxville, and Chattanooga. The free meetings are from 6 p.m. – 7 p.m.

Contact Amanda Meade at ameade@girlscoutcsa.org for more information.

The cost is yet to be determined; however, transportation from the Johnson City, Knoxville, and Chattanooga service centers will be included.
