Girls Golf -Missoula (Grades K-12)

Girl Scouts of MT & WY and the University of Montana Golf Course are working together to bring you a monthly Girls Golf Program. The instructors include the course golf professional as well as a member of the UM Golf team – both are amazing women role models. The three-hour program will include snacks, drinks, and games.

The UM Golf Course will provide one golf program a month to our Girl Scouts. Attend two ‘Girls Golf’ programs, and receive a special Girl Scouts golf fun patch! Girls in grades K through 12 will learn to play golf or increase golf skills, build lasting friendships, and experience competition in a fun, supportive environment. The program aims to prepare girls for a lifetime of enjoyment of the game.

Girls Golf will provide a solid instructional foundation for girls who want to:
*Get an introduction to golf skills
*Increase existing golf skills
*Get hands-on help from a PGA professional
*Play for fun with friends and family
*Learn for a future career in business
*Compete at high school, college, and/or local, state and national levels
*Learn a sport that you can play for a lifetime

The fee also includes snacks. Golf clubs will be provided to the girls if needed.   Parents are welcome to stay at the course during the lesson (you can bring your clubs and practice, too). Only registered adults can expect to help supervise at the actual lesson, however.

When registering, in the ‘Special Needs’ box, please indicate whether the participant will need to borrow golf clubs, and indicate the participant’s height.

This event is open to girls in grades K-12

Registration deadline: June 13

Intro to Backpacking, Horsepacking, & Trail Crew-Lincoln (Grades 6-12)

Wednesday, Jul 30 through August 3, 2014;  10:00 AM July 30th to 3:00 PM on August 3rd; Lincoln, MT 

Cost: $150/Girl; $150/Adult

GSMW, The Bob Marshall Wilderness Foundation (BMWF), and The All Women’s Outdoor Leadership Institute (AWOL) are offering an affordable and rewarding experience in the backcountry of Montana’s glorious Bob Marshall Wilderness. Join girls from across Montana & Wyoming for a horse-aided backpacking trip you will never forget!

From Wednesday, July 30th until Sunday, August 3rd, participants will get a unique opportunity to learn outdoor skills, discover their personal strengths, and to provide service to others through work that will improve access to some of Montana’s most serene and awesome natural spaces. And horses will help you get the job done!

Service to the wilderness will include cutting back overgrown brush on the trail, rehabilitating campsites, pulling weeds, and much more. We will also have traditional pack support (horses and mules) to help get group gear to camp.

And it’s not all about work. Girls will also enjoy engaging activities that promote personal well-being, enhance self-esteem, and increase girls’ confidence. In addition, each day will include lessons on environmental science, natural history, and plant & animal identification.

Girls are required to provide their own transportation to the meeting spot near Lincoln, MT. Carpooling is strongly encouraged. In order to participate, Cadettes must be 12 years of age or older. Plus, we may have room on the trip for any leaders who want to become Outdoor III Trained so they can take their own troop backpacking in the future. Preference will be given to girl registrants before adults, however. Adults must call Sarah M. to get on the waiting list.

Scholarships are available! The AWOL Institute also has all the backpacking gear you need other than shoes. So, if you need a backpack, a sleeping bag, a tent, or any other item, just ask AWOL – they have you covered.

Registration through ebiz is not available for this program. To register, or for more information, please contact Sarah M. at sarahm@gsmw.org or at 1.800.736.5243 x2306.

This event is open to girls in grades 6-12 and supervising adults.

Registration deadline: July 21
