Your Girl Scout Journey Begins at GS Fest!


Holy Moly Guacamole! One of the most awesome Girl Scout events of the year is just one month away…

September 23
10 am – 3 pm
USF Sun Dome, Tampa

So what does this mean? Hundreds of Girl Scouts, just like YOU, are taking over the USF Sun Dome for an entire day focused on all the fun you’ll have this year in Girl Scouts. That’s right! We’re inviting every single G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker and Leader)™ in west central Florida to join us as we kickoff the new program year.

Girl Scouts is open to everyone and GS Fest is a great time to bring family, friends, and neighbors so everyone can see all the wonderful, comfort-zone expanding, creative, science-y, thrilling, have-so-much-fun-you-can't-wait-to-do-it-again things girls can do in Girl Scouting.

Travel through an expo hall with station after station of activities put on by our program partners. We have age appropriate activities for girls in grades K-5 and 6-12. Who knows, you might even earn a fun patch or two. Taste test Girl Scout Cookies. Make a few SWAPs. Get close up and personal with creatures from Busch Gardens.  Bust a move with a DJ dance party. The possibilities are endless. Check out the list of participating partners

Exclusive CSA Activities
Calling all older girls –Yes, we have exclusive activities for our Cadette, Senior and Ambassador girls too. The Made w/Code party powered by Google features activities for girls 13-18 years old where they get to learn how to use coding to pursue their interests from art to sports to fashion to medicine to science and everything in between.  CSA girls will also learn how they can be involved in the upcoming Global Action Summit.

Start thinking about your future by sampling activities related to resume building, personal branding and networking. This is just a glimpse of the impactful information girls will learn at The Career Café event in October– which by the way was created by Anne B., Girl Scout Ambassador, for her Gold Award project. Talk about being girl-led! 

There’s a Patch for that
Every registered Girl Scout that attends GS Fest will receive the official GS Fest 2017 event patch. Psst here’s a sneak peek of the design.
