Deadline extended! Older girls invited to apply for the Trailblazin' and Stargazin' team

Ready to make your mark? Willing to roll up your sleeves and blaze a trail for those who will come behind you? Yes? Then we’ve got the perfect opportunity for a go-getter like you.

Join us at Camp Skymeadow August 7-18 for an awesome hands-on adventure that will make a lasting impact for Girl Scouts for years to come. Adventurous explorers who have completed the ninth grade are invited to apply for this unique experience. 

As part of a 10-girl team, you’ll get your hands dirty upgrading current horse trails and helping manage trail erosion. You’ll also put your outdoors skills into practice by backcountry camping—cooking, laughing, singing, and sleeping under the stars! 

You’ll work hard, but you’ll play hard, too. Relax with your team during two just-for-fun activities away from camp.  

Are you in? Complete the application by July 14 to be considered for this opportunity. If selected, you'll only need to pay a $50 deposit to hold your spot, which will be refunded once you’ve completed your adventure. Team selection will take place by July 20.

This program is being held in partnership with Student Conservation Association as part of the RK Mellon Outdoor Initiative.
