Midwinter Warm Up Enrichment for Adult Volunteers

Back by popular demand!  MidWinter has two purposes:  

· First to provide Girl Scout adult volunteers information, training, and ideas to spice up their programming.  

· Secondly, to give these adult volunteers the opportunity to enhance their own learning and growth. 

This one day event is hosted by a group of adult volunteers from Girl Scouts of Minnesota and River Valleys. Our goal is to provide fresh enrichment opportunities that we want to take ourselves!  Info, schedule and online registration available on website:

The show is appropriate for all ages of girls, especially Daisy through Junior. It is a lot like the game Clue where they try, individually or as a troop or group, to figure out who killed Pumpernickel - the butler not the bread.
