Programs on the Go

A Program on the Go is an easy and flexible way to arrange a program at a date, time, and place that works for girls in your area.


Consider a Program on the Go for a troop meeting, service unit event, or a stay at a council property.* Program staff leads and provides program supplies. You recruit girls, provide safety-ratio chaperones, and bring a snack.

 

Minimum number of participants varies depending on topic and other factors.  If there is a Program on the Go already set up in your area, you can check space using our Program Status Report (updated weekly). 

 

*Rental rates apply for council property use.
