Girl Scouts of Montana and Wyoming celebrates 100 years of Girl Scouting on July 13-15 in Missoula with the fifth of six Journey Through Girl Scouting events.

Inspired by founder and trailblazer Juliette Gordon Low, Missoula’s event is focused on the 1970s and 80s, a time that saw renewed effort to promote career paths for girls and women in science. Participants will explore areas of physics, biology, engineering, chemistry, architecture, and the world of sound, and have the opportunity to explore Historic Fort Missoula, all while camping Girl-Scout style!

GSMW is expecting as many as 300 Girl Scouts of all ages from all across Montana and Wyoming. This event is a huge undertaking that will require the assistance of volunteers, and we are looking for individuals to fill a variety of volunteer positions.

Parking Volunteers: Tasks include set up and tear down of parking lot and direction signage, directing of vehicles to camping or event only parking, and providing some information for event participants.

Event Registration Volunteers: Tasks include registering participants for the event, ensuring that participant’s Girl Scout membership is up to date, and providing information about the location and event.

Campsite volunteers: Tasks include check–in/out of campers, ensuring that campers understand the regulations of the camping sight, marking of gopher holes and where drinkable water can be found, bringing water and supplies to the campsite, dish washing stations, and ensuring that ‘leave no trace’ behind standards are met.

First Aid Station volunteers: A First Aid Station volunteer must have current CPR and First Aid certification and be able to provide a copy of this certification to Girl Scouts of Montana and Wyoming. Tasks include check–in/out of campers, ensuring that campers understand the regulations of the camping sight, marking of gopher holes and where drinkable water can be found, bringing water and supplies to the campsite, dish washing stations, and ensuring that ‘leave no trace’ behind standards are met.
