Event information Girl Scout troops and individual girl members are empowered to discover, connect and take action as they gain leadership skills through a variety of fun and engaging events. All Girl Scouts of Wisconsin Southeast-sponsored events are: • fun and interactive • held to the highest safety standards • developed to meet the needs of all girls • facilitated by staff, volunteers and/or girls. To ensure that each girl fully engages in each level of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, girls participating in the summer should register for events designed for the grade they are entering in the fall. Most events include: • a campfire • s’mores • an optional night hike Troops or individual girl members and their adult chaperone will be assigned to troop houses, platform tents or camping tents, and may be placed with another group. Requests for sleeping accommodations are not guaranteed. Meals are the responsibility of those registering.

When does registration open for overnight events? Registration will automatically open on Monday, February 3, at 11:00 p.m. All events (unless otherwise noted) close two weeks before the event date if not filled earlier. If the event is full, you will be notified within three business days from time of receipt of paper registration.

What is the cancelation and refund procedure? If a troop/girl cannot attend an event for which they have paid, notify the council by the registration deadline (two weeks before an event) to transfer the fee to another event (one transfer only).

Camp Locations Camp Alice Chester, East Troy Camp Pottawatomie Hills, East Troy Camp Silverbrook, West Bend Camp Winding River, Neosho

Will girls earn a recognition? All events are connected to the Girl Scout Leadership Experience and many events help girls earn a Girl Scout recognition - a badge, patch or Journey award. In the event description, Earned award means that girls will complete all five steps to that badge and Related award means that girls will complete some steps to completion of that badge. Visit www.gswise.org to see the specific steps girls will complete.

Looking for a fun and flexible volunteer experience? Adult event volunteers are needed to lead and assist at activity stations at events. Some events may require a specific skill, but many require no prior knowledge. Email eventvolunteers@gswise.org to volunteer.

Additional needs? We make every effort to meet the needs of all girls, so that everyone can fully participate. Please note any emotional, learning, physical, mental or health needs of girls when registering. For specific questions or situations, email events@gswise.org or call 800-565-4475.

Full refunds will be issued if your troop/girl cannot be placed in the session of their/her choice or if the event is canceled by the council.

When will I receive a confirmation?

How to register

A detailed confirmation will be emailed two weeks prior to the event. It will contain event details including appropriate dress, items to bring and directions. If attending as a troop, the person who registered the troop is responsible for ensuring that everyone has received the confirmation and sharing additional details specific to the troop’s coordination of attending the event.

Online registrations are processed immediately, whereas paper registrations could take a few days. If requesting financial assistance, you must use a paper registration.

How many adults can we bring to overnights?

Online • Go to www.gswise.org.

Bed space is limited. We ask that troops only register the required number of adults to meet Safety-Wise ratios. If more adults want to attend, please contact the council two weeks before the event to see if space is available. Individually registered girls must be accompanied by an adult.

How does a girl use Program Activity Credits (PACs)? PACs earned through the Fall Nut Sale or Girl Scout Cookie Program Activity can reduce the cost for the girl who earned the PAC to attend an event. Submit PACs by mail or by dropping off at a resource center after registering online or submit with the event registration form.
