Girl Scouts looking for an opportunity to earn two badges should plan to attend one of two early November special events at the Johnson County Park and Recreation District’s TimberRidge Adventure Center near Olathe. Social distancing and COVID-19 safe practices will be encouraged during these programs.
To find these programs in the My JCPRD Activities catalog, look first under youth and then under special events. Look for the keyword “scouts.”
The programs are: Girl Scout Daisy Badge Event for ages five to seven, and Girl Scout Brownie Badge Event for ages seven to ten. Daisy Scouts can obtain their Eco Learner and Buddy Camper badges, while Brownies can complete their Eco Friend and Outdoor Adventurer badges. Badges must be provided by Troops.
Both events will take place on Saturday, Nov. 7, at the TimberRidge Adventure Center, located at 12300 S. Homestead Lane, Olathe. For either program, the cost for one three-hour event is $20 per person, including adults, for Johnson County residents, or $22 per person for nonresidents.
The Brownie event (activity number 38459) will take place beginning at 9 a.m., but participants are encouraged to arrive at 8:30 a.m. The Daisy event (activity number 38460) will take place beginning at 1 p.m., but participants are encouraged to arrive by 12:30 p.m. Both groups are invited to bring a sack lunch and water bottle to enjoy before or after their session. Be sure to dress for the weather. This program may be moved indoors in case of inclement weather.
Preregistration is required for these events, and program fees are non-refundable. For more information, call Park Naturalist Diana Bliss at (913) 826-2807. To register for either program by phone, call (913) 831-3359. To register online, visit the district’s website at www.jcprd.com, click on “Register for Activities,” and perform a activity number search for either of the numbers listed above.
The My JCPRD Activities catalog, with information and a registration form, is available for pickup at all Johnson County Library branches and JCPRD facilities.
