Dive in Girl Scouts!


Sunday, October 23 is Girl Scout Day at DiVentures! Girl Scouts can try scuba diving in DiVentures' indoor, heated pool in this fun one-hour course. All equipment is included in the cost of the class, with a $10 discount for Girl Scouts. This means Girl Scouts can try scuba diving and learn to breathe underwater for only $40! Girls must be at least ten years old to participate. Spots are available at 11:00, 12:30 and 3:30 and girls can sign up individually or with a troop. Call DiVentures at 402.933.6251 for more information or to reserve your troop's spot!

Girl Scout Cookie Program 2012


What can a cookie do? It can help girls learn essential life skills such as Goal Setting, Decision Making, Money Management, People Skills and Business Ethics. The best part? Girls can learn all these skills while also earning funds for their troop and fabulous recognition items for themselves!

The 2012 Cookie Program will allow troops and girls to customize the program to best fit their needs! This year troops will have cookies in hand before the program begins, allowing girls to take cookies with them when they go door-to-door. Sales to their customers will be immediate! To ensure your troop receives the necessary information on the 2012 Cookie Program, make sure the troop leader fills out the 2012 Cookie Program Intent form and submits to their nearest service center by November 1, 2011.
