Girl Scout Travels with Destinations Program

Sierra, of Girl Scout Troop 2171, got to travel this past summer thanks to the​​​​​​​ Girl Scout Destinations program! She spent two weeks in Florida, learning all about animals and getting some pretty awesome experiences including watching a live horse surgery and going behind-the-scenes at an aquarium. Read more about her adventures on our blog!

Do you have a girl interested in traveling with the Destinations program? The first deadline for 2023 trips is November 15.​
Calling Buncombe County Girl Scouts! 
In its 30th year, Ingles is once again sponsoring a giving tree to benefit MANNA Foodbank in Asheville. The lighting of the tree is taking place on Monday, November 21, and MANNA is looking for 15-20 Girl Scouts from the Buncombe County area to participate in the event as carolers. The caroling will begin at 5 p.m. (girls will need to arrive at 4:30 p.m.) and run until 6 p.m. Families are invited to come and stay for the event while the girls carol and Girl Scouts will receive a fun patch.
