FUN Volunteer Opportunities w/ Girl Scouts!
*High Adventure Team Trip: North Carolina, June 11-24
The High Adventure Team will take off for North Carolina this summer to experience a backpacker’s dream trip. Travelers will spend four days backpacking the Appalachian Trail, two days paddling down New River and a day climbing to new heights at Table Rock.
GSCTX needs a couple of experienced backpacking gurus over the age of 25 who are also willing to drive a fifteen passenger van. You must provide your own food but gear and travel expenses will be covered by the council.
*Sow What Day Camp: Travis County, July 18-22
Join fellow foodies, aspiring gardeners and Girl Scout friends for a fun-filled weekend of exploring the roots of what we eat and getting the dirt on hunger and agricultural issues around the world. Digging into the Sow What? Journey, we will get a taste of local and global food networks including visitis to urban farms, grocery stores and farmer markets.
GSCTX needs a couple of adult volunteers over the age of 18 to join the group as camp counselors and a few adults who are willing to drive the vans on our field trips.
*Nature Park Trip: McKinney Roughs, July 31-August 4
Girl Scouts in grades 6th through 12th will participate in a week-long summer camp at one of the greatest nature parks around! Girls will do high and low ropes course, paddling trip, and enjoy camping and hiking around the park while learning outdoor conservation skills.
GSCTX needs a couple of adult volunteers over the age of 18 to join the group as camp counselors for the week. All food and lodging will be covered.
