Girls and BAH mentors participate in fun outdoor activities like the Log of Death and Rushing River that teach how to achieve success through trust, communication, and strategy.

The week of each event you will receive an email from the GSCNC Program Department confirming your registration and giving you details about the specific event location and logistics. We encourage girls to attend as many of the events as possible, in order to experience the full Make the Connection program. Girls who participate in the first 3 events will receive priority for the final service and celebration event.
Bring a Friend!
If you would like to bring a non-Girl Scout friend to the event, this would be an excellent opportunity for you to introduce her to Girl Scouting! Your friend will need to become a Girl Scout in order to attend the event. She can sign up here: http://www.gscnc.org/membership_forms.html
Girl Scouts who attend Make the Connection and bring an eligible new Girl Scout friend will receive a "Bring a Friend" patch.
