Slumber Party for Girls. Each spring, girls ages 7–12 have a fun night of investigation, discovery, and observation. History and art come alive as they work toward Girl Scout badges and have lots of sleepover fun. You don't have to a be a Girl Scout to participate! (Stay tuned for the date of the 2014 Slumber Party.)
