Summer is just around the corner, and the Program Team is hard at work planning and
getting ready for OWOF this fall. We hope that you are able to join us
this year, either as a family or with your troop, for a weekend full of
adventure and fun! Join over 1,000 Girl Scouts from all over the country
for this one of a kind weekend packed with traditions and new friends!
Remember to place your advance-order shirts and hoodies by July 11! All shirts and
hoodies will feature glow in the dark ink! Limited supplies of shirts
will be available in the shop during the weekend, but hoodies are only
available by advance order.
The Teen Volunteer Program is filling up quickly! Get your registration in as soon
as possible if you would like to be a part of this program just for girls who
are looking for a new way to experience OWOF! This is a great option if you are
thinking about being a CIT in the future or if you are looking for ways to take
on leadership roles. If you have questions about TVP, please email Program
Specialist Amanda Strobel (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The Program Team, as well as the whole staff, would also like to thank a few of our
volunteers who were not on our original list: Russ Bennett, Mary Wyman-Goenner,
Kristen Gangl, Christine Benson, Maddison Moyer, Lolita Meyers, Leave No Trace,
Katie Koester, Morgan Carlson, Crow Wing County Master Gardeners, Vicki Foss,
Laura Billman, and Wynn Podratz. We would not be able to offer so many choices
to girls without all of your efforts and we cannot thank you enough! Our
volunteers make OWOF possible!
If you are interested in being a volunteer or have questions about volunteering,
please email Program Specialist Nikki Revier (email@example.com).
