Last few weeks ... don't miss it!

The Institute of Texan Cultures, in partnership with GSSWT, presents Girl Power!, an exhibition heralding the next century of Girl Scouting. Visit ITC's website for hours and admission. 

 

The display closes Sunday, July 14 ... hurry! Come experience the enduring values and traditions of this iconic organization as told through personal stories, photographs, artifacts and memorabilia. 
Why Camp?

Because it's fun ... that's why! And girls learn all sorts of things, and the best part -- they don't even know they're learning! Camp is singing, laughing, playing. And real! We promise! Get a girl in your life registered today before our summer camp season ends! GSSWT offers a variety of flexible options to get her there! (Scholarships available!)
