POSTPONED - this retreat will be rescheduled to a different date that will hopefully allow more leaders to attend. Thank-you!

Please join us for our first annual Leaders' Retreat weekend!

Our Leaders' Retreat is set up to provide a weekend long relaxing, social, creative learning environment to connect with other troop leaders around our council. There will be a troop supply swap so bring any unused or unwanted Girl Scout materials to be re-purposed or re-homed.

Be sure to brainstorm your troop success stories and any tips or tricks for troop management. Any great troop events or trips? What about creative badge activities? Be prepared to share and swap stories.

Please choose a track for your weekend: Outdoor Adventure or Girl Scout Leadership.

Our Outdoor Adventure track includes: 

  • Positive Mental Attitude presentation
  • shelter building
  • fire building
  • overview of survival first aid
  • adventurous half-day hike

Note that the Outdoor Adventure track is not a substitute for your Girl Scout Outdoor Education certification. 

Our Girl Scout Leadership track includes:

  • getting troops outside
  • finance training
  • girl processes
  • highest award walk through
  • journey discussions

We will all enjoy various Girl Scout chats in informal settings and leaders' socials. Lodging and meals provided by Mountain Shepherd. Adult beverages may be enjoyed responsibly in evening hours. Feel free to bring your favorite spirits to share. Garnishes will be provided.
