Girl registration through GSSEM includes a passport at check in.

Girls will earn awards from the Journey "It's Your Planet... Love It!"
- Daisies: Firefly Award

Activity stations will be open from 11:00am - 3:00pm and are exclusive to our Girl Scouts who are pre-registered.
This includes admission to the zoo, activity stations, participation patch and use of Pierson Lake Pavilion. All siblings wishing to be included in the activity and craft stations must purchase a girl ticket for the appropriate grade level. Sorry, no passes for children participating can be honored. Adults only may use their zoo membership for entrance.
Note: You must purchase the appropriate age level ticket to assure your child is participating in the right activities. Tickets are not transferable from one age level to another or from adult to child, etc.
Registration deadline: May 6, 2017 (or sooner if capacity is reached). Refunds are available when requested in writing (email is acceptable) before the registration deadline. Cancellations after the registration deadline are non-refundable and non-transferable. Full refunds will be issued if a council event or series is cancelled.
