Registration deadline: EXTENDED to Monday, July 2
Interested in volunteering? Sign up for positions online here!
Under the stars at Fort Missoula, embark on a two-day camping experience during the fifth of six Journey Through Girl Scouting events. Inspired
by founder and trailblazer Juliette Gordon Low, these events honor a century of Girl Scouting.
Missoula's event takes place July 13 - 15 at historic Fort Missoula and will be focused on the 1970s and 80s, a time that saw renewed effort to promote career paths for girls and women in science. In reflection of these two decades, and in celebration of The Year of the Girl, participants will discover their inner 'Girl Scout in Science' by exploring areas of physics, biology, engineering, chemistry, architecture, and the world of sound.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to explore Historic Fort Missoula with docents on-hand to answer questions, participate in interactive booths, run experiments in science, play games, sing and learn new songs, and make new friends!

All overnight participants must be registered Girl Scout members including adults. We cannot accommodate RVs, only tent camping.
Meals are the responsibility of the attendee. Food may be prepared on camp stoves. Please contact council if you have a question about whether or not your cooking device is approved. No open fire or flames will be allowed at campsites or to prepare food. Attendees are responsible for all necessary supplies to camp out overnight, including your own tent.
Since Girl Scouts of Montana and Wyoming is not providing meals and overnight supplies, therefore admission covers activity booths regardless if you are camping or visiting for the day. A complimentary bandanna will be provided to all participants. This bandanna must be worn throughout the event to identify you as a Girl Scout participant. Please no tag-a-longs as we cannot accommodate them.
