Girl Scout Day at DiVentures



Sunday, January 30 is the first Girl Scout Day at DiVentures! Girl Scouts will experience scuba diving in DiVentures' indoor, heated pool, after learning important safety rules in the classroom. All equipment is included in the cost of the class, with a $10 discount for Girl Scouts. That means you can try scuba and learn to breathe underwater for only $40 per girl! Snorkeling classes for the day are full, but there are still openings for the 3:00 and 4:30 p.m. scuba courses. There will also be another Girl Scout Day on April 10. Reserve your troop's spot now!

DiVentures also offers swim lessons and pool parties! For more information visit DiVentures' website or call 402.933.6251 to book a class.

Girl Scout Uniforms.
Display Your Journey.


Uniforms can be an important part of Girl Scouting.Your tunic, sash or vest is a record of everything you have done as a Girl Scout.Many people keep their uniforms for a lifetime and cherish the memories they represent. None of this can happen if you can't figure out where those patches, badges, petals or ID strips go..so that you can proudly display them when you are selling Girl Scout Cookies or doing any activity.
