Troops and service units are encouraged to set up a scout craft booth or display at the Scout Show on Saturday and enter the activity booth competition (See judging criteria and info and ideas). Sign up to host a booth here. Troops must supply their own materials, tents and tables.

Camping

Troops and families should bring all provisions for the weekend including tent, supplies, and food for Friday dinner, Saturday breakfast, lunch and dinner, and Sunday breakfast. Food vendors and a chili cook-off ($5 entry) will be available on-site during Saturday lunch). Campfires are not permitted on the ground but participants are allowed to bring a metal fire pit or camping grill to cook on. There are a few charcoal grills throughout the park but groups will need to bring their own charcoal and other supplies. VOII not required unless outdoor cooking.

Skits & Songs at Friday Night Campfire

Troops are encouraged to prepare a skit or song to share at the Friday night campfire! Skits and songs should be brief (1 minute or less) and represent Girl Scouts positively. Sign up to perform HERE.

Register before March 28 to receive a limited edition 2018 patch. All registrations after this date will receive the standard patch (same as last year) while supplies last.

Patch trading: Trade patches with scouts from other councils to complete the Build a Patch activity.
