Journey Through Girl Scouting: 1952 - 1971 - Cody (grades K - 12)
REGISTRATION DEADLINE EXTENDED to Monday, April 16! Register now to ensure your spot!
Continuing our journey through the last century of Girl Scouting, girls are invited to Cody to discover the years 1952 to 1971...the dawn of television, America's first spacewalk, the explosion of rock 'n roll, progress toward racial equality, and the tumultuous time of the Vietnam war.
Girls will explore various games and toys invented in these years, many that are still thriving today. Girls will get to try their hand at various game show games where they can win prizes.
As well, girls will learn about rockets, make tie-dye clothing and participate in crafts such as the 'God's Eye' and beading.
Dinner will be reminiscent of eating at a 50s diner--and the event wouldn't be complete without an American Bandstand-style dance party with a soda fountain serving refreshments.
The evening will close with a movie that first appeared at a drive-in, which peaked in popularity in the late 1950s and early 1960s.
This event is open to girls in grades K - 12 and supervising adults. Cost is $15/girl or $25 if staying overnight ($5/adult or $10 if staying overnight). Cost includes all activity booths and dinner. If staying overnight, please bring a sleeping pad and bag. Breakfast will be provided.
Overnight accommodations are for girls/female adults only. Arrangements for other family members can be made upon request. If planning to be in Cody on Friday evening, limited sleeping space is available at the Scout House for an additional $5/person.
Alumnae are invited to join the festivities, but if planning to partake should register with the council. Call 800-736-5243 for special requests or to volunteer at the event.
On Sunday Trolley Tours are being arranged for an extra cost after the event is over and the Scout House is available for $5/person. Space is limited for both.
Celebrations continue in Missoula on July 13 - 15, featuring a campout and activities from 1972 - 1991, and Cheyenne, featuring a sing-a-long at the State Capitol and activities from 1992 - 2012 (dates TBD).
