Summer Event Guide

for Girl Scout Daisies through Ambassadors

Tips & Frequently Asked Questions Girl Scout summers are filled with fun, friends and adventures in the great outdoors. From water exploration to amazing animals to rockets to seeking treasures, our 2014 Summer Event Guide has something for girls of all ages. Take a moment to review this publication with your Girl Scout and together determine which events best suit her interests and needs. Whatever she chooses, you can be satisfied knowing that the activities in this guide are created to engage, educate and excite your Girl Scout while helping her to develop into a young woman of courage, confidence, and character, who makes the world a better place.

Register for an event today! • We invite girls to attend summer events for the grade she is entering in the fall as she continues her Girl Scout Leadership Experience. • All Girl Scouts are invited to participate in a variety of fun, engaging and educational events that empower them to discover, connect and take action as they gain leadership skills. • Girls can attend an event individually if their troop is not attending. • All Girl Scouts of Wisconsin Southeast sponsored events are fun, interactive, held to the highest safety standards and developed to meet the needs of all girls. • Events are facilitated by staff, volunteers and/or girls.

When does registration for summer events open and close? • Monday, February 3, 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 girl cannot attend an event for which she has paid, notify the council by the registration deadline (two weeks before an event) to transfer the fee to another event (one transfer only). If the event is canceled by the council, full refunds will be issued.

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 found on pp. 13-14.

What is expected of adults? Troop leaders are responsible for obtaining permission slips and for meeting Safety-Wise adult to girl ratios for the event. Adults are encouraged but not expected to attend with individually registered girls.

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.

Can families attend events? Some events are appropriate for the whole family to attend. They are found in the Family & Friends section on pp. 3-4. These are the only events at which we allow siblings to attend.

Is financial assistance available for my Girl Scout to attend events? Financial assistance is available for registered members of Girl Scouts of Wisconsin Southeast to help families meet the cost of sending their girl to camp and events. Visit www.gswise.org for the Event Financial Assistance form. Financial assistance is funded by gifts to Girl Scouting and proceeds from the Girl Scout Cookie Program Activity. One resident camp, one day camp and one event will be considered for Financial assistance per girl.

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.

How to register

When will I receive a confirmation?

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

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.

Online • Go to www.gswise.org and click Event & Training Registration. Paper • Complete the Event Registration form found on pp. 13–14 in its entirety.
