Oh my goodness, how fun is this. We have participated in not only ONE but TWO days with Girl Scouts at Elitch Gardens. Because there are so many fabulous things to see and do, there is something for every girl. We are gearing up because a new season has begun! Girl Scouts of Colorado is so great at planning so many fantastic opportunity for girls.
A few tips for a successful amusement park outing with a troop…
- Take lots of potty breaks!
- Talk about risks and courage and bravery BEFORE you arrive.
- Use the BUDDY system.
- Take LOTS of photographs.
- MONEY…bring money. The girls love to do and buy and try things.
- Follow the promise and the law. They work!
Last year, we took our girls on Girl Scout Day and they had a blast. There were activities related to so many of the Girl Scout ideals, the promise and the law. This year they are having THREE days of Girl Scout fun (entry is $24.99) and the activities will be from 10-1 with access to the park for the rest of the day! Keep reading to get the dates.
We also took our entire troop for a day later in the summer and it was glorious. We worked on developing friendships, taking risks and accessing joy. It was a complete success including soaking wet leaders, laughing scouts and happy memories.
We had this for the girls to do in the car on the way to the park. You can grab it and have it FREE HERE.
This year the Girl Scout Days are June 17-19. When you get to the park, visit the Big Wheel to get all the information! You can find out more HERE.
