Leaderfest @ Camp Ginger Cascades
Nov 7 @ 7:45 am – 5:30 pm

REGISTER NOW!

Leaderfest is a one-day, fun, casual, and relaxing A.W.E.S.O.M.E. event for volunteers – both volunteers working with the girls and also other youth groups. There are no opening or closing ceremonies, no gifts to bring and no special dress. Just a chance to sit back, enjoy yourself and make new friends. And if you want, you may come spend Friday night at camp with your new friends.

Leaderfest is an adult learning event and retreat for our adult Girl Scout volunteers over the age of 18. There is no child care available. A mobile shop will be open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Troop House for for those looking to stock up on Girl Scout goodies.

Leaderfest also offers you an opportunity to give back to the community through our annual service project and two opportunities to get some great deals. Bring your cash and visit our Dollar Table, a place to get a great deal on craft or other items. Please feel free to bring surplus Girl Scout items you have to donate to the table also.

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, you are welcome to participate in a Leaderfest service project. Please bring non-perishable food to donate to area food banks.

And finally, we’ll also have an auction with great items, including some awesome camping weekends for your troop at Camp Ginger Cascades! All proceeds from the auction go to the Ed Whitmire Scholarship Fund.

Cadette Book Artist Badge @ Sawtooth School for Visual Art
Nov 7 @ 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm

For centuries, humans have been developing methods to create and bind paper in order to share ideas, knowledge and inspiration with each other and with future generations. The craft of creating books has evolved over time, but the basic human need to share words and pictures has stayed the same. In earning this badge scouts will learn gluing, stitching, and folding their way to shaping their own book-artistry style. To register individually, visit http://www.sawtooth.org/classes/Teen. To register a troop, e-mail Nannette Davis. Full payment is due at registration.
