Girl Experience
Maple Sugar Program Leaders, January 25th 10am – 4pm. Are your Girl Scouts looking for leadership experience and service to Girl Scouting Hours? Maple Sugar Program Leaders will achieve both.  Help teach younger Girl Scouts all there is to know about Maple Syrup. Older girl presenters and adult volunteers are needed to create and deliver our Maple Sugaring and Maple Sapling programs. Whether you enjoy writing scripts, acting, making crafts, singing songs or helping others, there is an important role for everyone. NEW THIS YEAR: Show off your culinary skills in an optional Maple Cookoff. For the February event, create a culinary dish with Maple syrup for our participants to try and vote for their favorite. Commitment to this event includes a training on January 25th, as well as presenting the program February 20th -21st (with optional Saturday overnight). Register Today!
