Girl Scouts

ALNC has Girl Scout programs aligned with the Girl Scout USA Journeys, Legacy Badges and Fun Badges.

Troop programs are held regardless of the weather as we are able to move activities indoors if needed. Program length is generally 1.5 – 2 hours. Longer programs may be arranged with price adjustment.

All programs run rain, shine, snow or no snow and all programs will go outdoors. Dress scouts to be outdoors no matter the weather. If there is thunder or lightening or other extreme weather, back-up indoor activities will be provided. In the case that ALNC does cancel a program we will issue a full refund.
