Discover Girl Scouts Info & Activity Night in Blaine

Do you have a G.I.R.L. (Go-Getter, Innovator, Risk-Taker, Leader) that would love to explore new things and make lifelong friends? Girl Scouts of Western Washington invites you to come out and learn about opportunities to join or form new Girl Scout troops Whatcom County! Girls can come visit our various stations that help show what Girl Scouts is about, while parents learn about local troops and how Girl Scouting helps to build courage, confidence and character. Our stations will include Lego Robotics, an American Sign Language station where they can learn some basic words and to sign their name, a craft station and a maker-space table! Our Girl-Driven, Girl-Led program serves girls from Kindergarten through 12th grade. We are diverse and inclusive, secular and non-partisan. Financial assistance is available based on the free/reduced lunch guidelines. For more info please contact Lynda Williams (360)658-8083 or LWilliams@GirlScoutsWW.org.
