Location:

Montgomery Parks
Throughough Montgomery County
Various Parks, MD

Description

Montgomery Parks can be a great place for you to do your Girl Scout Silver or Gold Award projects!

Although sometimes Park Staff have projects in mind, the number of applicants far outnumbers them. It is often up to the scout to find a suitable project. We suggest you choose a park location that is convenient to you and explore the area to see what amenities you can help create or restore.

Park staff will work with you to review your project proposal prior to approval. The scout will then be responsible for good communication with Park Staff, and completing the project in a timely manner.

Sign up here and someone will be in touch soon to discuss the project with you!

Due to COVID, additional requirements will be in place, including mask wearing, filling out waivers and social distancing. All will be shared after application is filled out.
