We Believe in Girls -- do you?  Then join in the fun as we launch our annual "Believe in Girls" or B.I.G. Festival!  The Diamonds B.I.G. Festival 2013 will be held in Springdale, but will move to a different region of the Council each year.  

Friday and Saturday activities will be at the Jones Center in Springdale and we will wrap-up the weekend at beautiful Crystal Bridges. Swimming, ice-skating and an outdoor movie (weather permitting) are just a tip of the fun. There will something for everyone -- even the adults!  Housing options will include nearby Diamonds Council properties and local hotels. 

The symposium-style event will offer girls to choose the "focus" they wish to follow for the event; outside professionals, speakers and/or experts will be brought in to help facilitate each track. 

Planned tracks:


1)      Animal Behavior - Program partner not yet confirmed

2)      Sustainability - Heifer International 

3)      Healthy Living - Lady Razorbacks 


1)      Astronomy

Adults will have 2 tracks from which to choose.  That information will be released as soon as confirmed.
