$7-15 per girl; $4-10 per adult
Adult, Junior, Cadette
Come join the University of Texas Environmental and Civil Engineers students as you learn to Think Like a Citizen Scientist. Girls will learn about watersheds, take water samples from the Gulf of Mexico, and understand the importance of water quality. Sessions are facilitated by UT grad students and incorporate hands-on learning. Girls will complete the requirements of the Think Like a Citizen Scientist badge portion of the Journey and brainstorm some ideas for the Take Action Project portion of the Journey, which they will complete on their own. There is an optional time period on Sunday where troops/groups can spend time brainstorming their Take Action Project (see note below). Provided in the registration fee is a badge, snacks on Saturday, and drinks on Saturday.

Girls have the option of coming for the day or stay in unit cabins Friday through Sunday. Girls that are camping will have the option to brainstorm and participate in a beach clean up Sunday morning.

Note: Meals are not included in this event.  Please note all cabins have AC and heat and fully equipped with kitchen and bath facilities. We will do our best to place Juniors together and Cadettes together. 
Drop-off and Supervision: This is NOT a drop-off event; Girl Scout ratio of adults are required to attend and must register. Adult space is limited. Please only register the required minimum number of adults per Girl Scout ratio in Volunteer Essentials. (2 adults for every 16 Juniors, 2 adults for every 20 Cadettes).
Adult Requirements: Adults must have an up-to-date membership and background check since they will be supervising girls. At least 1 adult from each troop/group should have camp certification. Although a first aider is provided for this event during the Saturday program, at least 1 adult per troop/group is certified to fulfill transportation requirements to/from camp and be a first-aider for Saturday night. Because adults are required to supervise girls inside the cabins, we, unfortunately, cannot accommodate male chaperones for this activity.
Tagalongs and Registration Switches: No tagalongs allowed at this event and no at-the-door registrations are accepted. Please be diligent in ensuring the correct girls are registered so materials can be prepared appropriately. Any registrant swaps should be completed at least 2 weeks in advance. 

Bring: Permission Slip and Medical Form, Adult Emergency Form, Sack lunch, snacks, drinks, overnight gear (a suggested packing list will be available after registration is completed)
