Adventure / Aquatic Program Directory 
Our girls love our adventure and aquatics programs!  We need your help to ensure they can get them.  We want to publish a directory for use by our areas, service units, and troops.  This directory will cross-reference our programs and locations and then tell them who we have that is willing to facilitate their program. We're also gathering information to enhance our trainings.  If you're not currently certified, but want to be, there's a place for that!  If you are certified, but are willing to take your skills to the next level and be a trainer for us, there's a place for that as well. We have amazing facilities and equipment - our girls deserve to use it!  Please help us connect them to volunteers that are willing to lead them.  Take this quick survey:
