Has your girl ever wondered what it would be like to be a Girl Scout? This is her chance to learn all about being a Girl Scout at the Girl Scout Experience, hosted by Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois. She’ll spend a fun and exciting day exploring new activities, participating in camp games, and making new friends! This event is open to all girls in kindergarten through fifth grade.
The Girl Scout Experience is June 26, from 9 a.m.–3 p.m. Parents may drop off girls from 8:45–9:15 a.m. at Wheeler Park, 822 N. First Street, in Geneva. Advance registration is available for only $5, if received by June 19, 2013. Registration is $7 the day of the event. Girls should bring a sack lunch and water bottle. To ensure safety during activities, girls should not wear open-toe shoes. For more information or to register, contact Christina Kirsch at 630-897-1565, Ext. 7182, or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . 
The safety of our campers and volunteers takes priority over anything else and due to the likeliness of severe winds and intense storms and our lack of indoor/underground shelter the Aztec Twilight Camp at The Hollows in Cary, IL will be cancelled for this evening, Wednesday, June 12. Twilight Camp will resume tomorrow as scheduled.
