Girls in Gear Mountain Biking with BBBS & Girl Scouts
October 10 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pmFree
As a part of our continued partnership with the Girls Scouts River Valley, we’re excited to invite matches to explore the Camp Elk River facilities. This intro to mountain biking program will teach you the essential skills for heading out on trail, followed by a group ride to try out your new moves at Camp Elk River. All participants should know how to ride a bike before participating in this program. Bikes and Helmets will be provided for duration of program.
Once the ride is over, Bigs and Little’s will have the opportunity to roast smores around a fire, drink some cocoa and learn more about the Juliette Scouting program.
What is Juliette Scouting?
Juliette Girl Scouts are busy, independent, self-confident girls and young women who want to be a part of something larger – Girl Scouts! As a Juliette, a girl won’t attend troop meetings; instead, she will work on Girl Scout programs with the guidance her Big Sister.
Why Should I Become a Juliette?
There are many advantages to participating in Girl Scouts as a Juliette:
- Gain leadership experience.
- Have the opportunity to participate in all Girl Scout activities individually, so they can tailor their experience.
- Create a well-rounded Girl Scout experience by completing the planning guide for their grade-level, on their own time.
- Serve their community through individual community service projects and Take Action projects.
What Can a Juliette Do?
Juliette Girl Scouts can do anything Girl Scouts in a troop can do. Juliettes learn to Discover, Connect, and Take Action when they:
Complete Girl Scout Journeys + Badges
Girls can choose from three different Journey books at each program grade level. Journeys guide girls towards becoming a leader in their community. Juliettes can also earn badges, which include a variety of skill-building activities, many of which compliment the Journeys.
Attend Girl Scout Events + Activities
Juliettes can meet other girls in their area while completing Journeys, earning badges, or learning more about the outdoors at council-sponsored events. Communities also offer many events and service opportunities, which are great for Juliettes to meet other Girl Scouts in their area.
Help Others Through Community Service
Part of the Girl Scout Law is to “make the world a better place.” Juliettes can work on their own or with their Girl Scout community to carry out this Girl Scout tradition. Juliettes can also pass along what they’ve learned, gain leadership skills, and earn special mentoring awards by helping younger Girl Scouts at troop meetings, events, camp, and more.
Participate in the Girl Scout Cookie and Fall Product Programs
Juliettes can fund their Girl Scout activities while learning great business skills including goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics. Learn more about Cookies and Snacks + Magazines.
Earn Girl Scouting’s Highest Awards
The Gold, Silver, and Bronze Awards are the highest awards in Girl Scouting. Juliettes can earn these awards by leading a take-action project to improve their local community
Travel with Girl Scout destinations
Juliettes can experience leadership opportunities and cross-cultural understanding through regional, national, and international travel.
