Girl Scouts can experience "a sailor's life from the days of old", in a special overnight adventure aboard the Tall Ship Elissa. After a tour of the Elissa and a video presentation, the overnight Girl Scout crew learns some hands-on sailing skills.  Girls will help set one of Elissa's huge staysails, and they work with the ship's volunteer crew to master rope craft and seagoing knots.  During the night, girls will follow one of the oldest traditions of the sea- keeping watch over the Elissa and Galveston Harbor.  Note that sleeping arrangements are outside on the Ships deck, and there are covered areas for bad weather days. 

Bring: Permission Slip and Medical Form, Adult Emergency Form, sleeping bag, air mattress, pillow, and change of clothes.  Breakfast will be served aboard Elissa and snacks will be provided.
When: Check in is at 6:30 p.m. and check out is at 9 a.m. Breakfast will be served aboard Elissa and snacks will be provided.
Cost: $45 per girl and $45 per adult.
