Come join us as we Reach for the Peaks
and celebrate Girl Scouts' 110th birthday! 

Our second annual Reach for the Peaks is happening March 5-13, 2022. And this time it's bigger and better than before! Girl Scouts of the Southern Appalachians are inviting all Girl Scouts and friends to join us as we hike the highest peaks or just around your neighborhood, accomplish 3.12 (our birthday!) miles or set your own goal. Come spend a fun week hiking together as we share our achievements and cheer one another on.


We at Girl Scouts of Southern Appalachians have been excited to hear Jennifer Pharr Davis speak on Mar. 12 at the Knoxville Museum of Art. Unfortunately, snow and extremely cold weather are in the forecast, with accumulations likely, so we have decided to postpone the event until Tues., April 5. Jennifer will be speaking at 6:00p.m that day with the Meet-and-Greet to follow. Both events will still be held at the Knoxville Museum of Art and all current registrations will be honored. We hope you will still be able to join us on Apr. 5!

We apologize for the inconvenience of the change. Aside from keeping everyone safe, we wanted to be able to fully celebrate the 110th anniversary of Girl Scouts.  

For Meet-and-Greet tickets, please email us at

Tickets for the speaking engagement can be purchased below. 


Jennifer Pharr Davis is an internationally recognized adventurer, speaker, author, and entrepreneur who has hiked more than 14,000 miles of trails on six different continents. In 2011 she set the overall fastest known time on the Appalachian Trail by finishing the 2,185-mile foot path in 46 days (an average of 47 miles a day). She has also been named National Geographic's Adventurer of the Year.
