Girls Get Away is designed for girls to complete the first two pieces of the GSUSA Journey series. Each Journey is centered around a theme and has its own book that girls will use to guide them. While the purpose of this event is to be educational in order to complete the journey, we do work to ensure as much fun as possible. Some of the topics due tend to be more intense so we work to create a sense of fun around it while making sure not to detract from the content.  Each journey requires a large amount of book work along with hands on activities.  Please expect the girls will spend some time sitting, talking, discussing, and processing content that is being covered.  We will ensure they get 1 activity outside around camp that is active and in an area the staff supervising them is trained in. We cannot guarantee which activities each group will do as it will depend on staffing, girls attending, and weather. Girls will complete all requirements up to the Take Action project. The Take Action project will be up to them to complete on their own time.

Each troop/girl will be asked to select their journey prior to the event. The options by Girl Scout level include:

Juniors - Agent of Change, Get Moving, Amuse
Cadettes - Amaze, Media,  Breathe
Seniors – Girltopia, Mission Sisterhood
Ambassadors – Bliss, Justice
Each Journey must have a minimum of 4 girls to be offered. If we do not reach that minimum then girls will be given their second choice. This could be announced as late as the Tuesday before the event.
