Days she’ll remember all her life
Girl Scouts of Minnesota and Wisconsin Lakes and Pines events, camp, and travel pathways offer flexible ways to participate in Girl Scouts.
The experience can be as individual as each girl. Girl Scout troops are still the most common (and recognized) form of Girl Scouting. But with today’s Girl Scouts, girls can choose to participate in all events and activities individually or with their troop.
Getting started. Below you’ll find the Program Events and Activities guide for 2014-15. Click on the image to view/download/print the guide. When you find the activity that interests your daughter (and she meets the age requirement) simply complete the registration form and send it to our Waite Park office. You can check availability on our Program Status Report (updated weekly). NEW! Online program registration is now available.
Featured Event: Tap to Table
Running Sap is cause for celebration in the Northland Sugarbush! Did you know it takes 40-45 gallons of sap to make just one gallon of the delicious sweet stuff we love on pancakes and waffles – Maple Syrup ?!
There are at least one hundred species of maple trees in the world. Fourteen are native to the United States, and in Minnesota four species are used for producing maple syrup! They include Sugar, Red, and Silver Maples, as well as Box Elders.
The sap flows early in the spring when the daytime temperatures rise above freezing and drop back down below freezing at night. In our region that could be anytime from mid to late February through March and early April.
Identify, tap and boil down your own maple syrup at our upcoming program Tap to Table! Try your hand at making hard maple candy/taffy and earn a fun patch after attending this SWEET program. Consider staying overnight on Friday or Saturday and enjoy a Ojibwe inspired meal and learn about the traditions during this time of spring renewal. Find all the details on page 7 of the Program Guide, and sign up today!
