Take Action in Glacier #4-Glacier NP (Grades 6-12)
Take action in Glacier National Park this summer. Girls will get the opportunity to explore this national park as well as perform a service project for the National Park Service. Glacier National Park in northwest Montana will be hosting Girl Scout troops from Montana and Wyoming during the summer of 2013. Troops will work alongside Glacier National Park staff performing service projects that may include removal of non-native plants, building picnic tables, painting historic structures, and other projects still to be determined. Girls who attended last year are still talking about the fabulous experiences they had last summer on these Take Action projects!
Troops will be given entrance fee waivers and a free group campsite during their stay. Girls will arrive in the park on Sunday, July 28, perform 5 hours of service work each day Monday through Wednesday, and will have Thursday and Friday to explore and enjoy the park. Troops will depart on Saturday, August 3. Troops are responsible for their transportation in the park as well as bringing their own camping equipment, tents, cooking supplies, and food. As with all Girl Scout camping experiences, one adult must have outdoor training and be First Aid/CPR certified.
Each youth and adult will receive a special limited-edition Glacier National Park Service Patch as well as the Girl Scout Ranger patch.
These special service project opportunities are being offered first to Girl Scouts of Montana and Wyoming, and registration is on a first come-first serve basis. All participants are required to complete a National Park Service Volunteer Agreement form and submit the form to GSMW once their registration is confirmed. (This form will be sent from the Council).
Girls and adults must be in good physical condition and comfortable working in the outdoors to complete the service project that is assigned to their group. If girls have a friend who wants to join them for this special opportunity, they are able to participate by paying the Girl Scout membership fee of $12. Troops may join together for this project as long as they do not exceed the maximum number of girls allowed.
Gather your troop and have a fabulous week of fun and service in Glacier National Park this summer!
This event is open to girls in grades 6-12 and supervising adults.
