Senior and Ambassador Journey Retreat

Sisterhood! It’s found in those moments of real connection that you experience with girlfriends, your mother, other female relatives and your Girl Scout sisters—and all the connections you will experience with the girls and women you have yet to meet. Hear the stories of dreams and dreamers. Learn how a leader can pursue her personal dreams and make it possible for others to do the same. Using your talents and skills in new ways, take on a project that helps others achieve their own dreams.
