Join us at Camp Timber Ridge for a Journey day where girls will work to complete the first two pieces of a GSUSA Journey. Each Journey is centered around a theme and has its own book, which will be provided, that will be used to guide them along the way. For this event, girls will be working on the Think Like a Citizen Scientist Journey series. The day will primarily be spent working through the different activities in the journey book and, having discussions about topics covered in the journey. They will also get the opportunity to participate in a classic camp activity. This program is primarily educational so please expect that participants will spend most of the day indoors, sitting and talking with their group about the journey work. Adults are not required to attend this event. Camp will staff the event to maintain supervision ratios for each age range throughout the event.
