Girls in grades K-12 and their families can attend a free Discover Girl Scouts Night at Tomah Middle School Thursday, Oct. 3.
From 6-7 p.m., girls interested in learning more about the organization can participate in a hands-on STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) activity similar to opportunities offered through Girl Scouts. Families can learn more about the Girl Scout experience, how troops are formed and what to expect in the first year.
Girls and adults who are prepared to complete their membership registration can do so at the event. Financial assistance and fee waivers are available for membership costs and camp opportunities for families that qualify for the federal free and reduced-price meals program.
Families that cannot attend the Oct. 3 event can still sign up their girl for Girl Scouts by visiting Badgerland’s website, (gsbadgerland.org), emailing email@example.com or calling 800-236-2710.
Girl Scouts of Wisconsin-Badgerland Council serves 23 counties in south-central and southwest Wisconsin, as well as Houston County in Minnesota and Allamakee County in Iowa. Service centers are located in Madison, Janesville, Platteville and La Crosse.
