Quiltmaker @ Asheville Service Center
Sep 13 @ 5:00 am – 11:00 am

Quilts say so much about our lives – our likes, desires and dreams. Quiltmakers were storytellers of the past. Put your math skills to use, learn to use a sewing machine and to also make hand stitches. Members of the Asheville Quilt Guild will teach girls needed skills to make their own quilt wall hanging. All materials will be provided.

Animal Habitats @ The North Carolina Arboretum
Sep 13 @ 1:00 pm – 4:30 pm

Imagine meeting a black bear or building your home like a beaver. These animals live in the wild, so we don’t get to spend time with them in their natural homes—their habitats. But that doesn’t mean we can’t find out more about where they live, how they play and how we can help them! Girls are welcome to attend without adults in attendance. Arboretum educators serve as adults required for safety ratios. Girl Scouts are encouraged with groups/troops that register together to meet safety ratios. Register online at www.ncarboretumregistration.org. Contact Jonathan Marchal, Youth Education Coordinator, at 828-665-2492 ext. 228 with questions.

Camp Sunshine Staff Program Orientation @ Camp Ginger Cascades

Camp Sunshine is a leadership program for girls in grades 7-12.

This REQUIRED orientation will give you an overview of the program and detailed job descriptions of all the leadership positions available for the event. The girl staff designs the activities, learns techniques to work with younger girls, expands their leadership and organizational skills and gains self-confidence in themselves by helping others. Camp Sunshine staff are selected by application only and applications MUST be received by October 1, 2014, to be considered.

If selected, girls MUST be available to attend the following meetings and training to be held at Camp Ginger Cascades: October 26, November 16 and January 11 from 3-5 p.m. and a required training March 21-22, 2015, with the actual event April 10-12, 2015.
