Girl Scout Ranger Weekend
Get ready Brownies to become a Girl Scout Ranger! This partnership program with the National Park Service will provide an opportunity for girls to earn their Girl Scout Ranger badge, a patch that requires Girl Scouts to participate in organized educational activities for a minimum of ten hours at a national park. Girls will stay overnight at Camp Brookside Environmental Education Center at New River Gorge National River, where they will participate in science based activities to learn about the park and its natural resources. They will also have an opportunity to earn the Space Science Investigator badge and the Night Sky Explorer Junior Ranger patch. Brownies must attend in proper troop ratio. Adults must be current members and have a successful background check on file with Black Diamond Council. All funds collected for the event are to assist with the purchase of badges. The National Park Service is hosting the event at no cost! This is a great opportunity to get outdoors and explore with Brownies. Adults must be current members and have a successful background check on file with Black Diamond Council. Please bring a bagged lunch for Saturday. Nut products are prohibited due to allergies.
