The last date for registration has passed.

Show your Girl Scout pride and interest in citizenship as we spend a day at the Capitol. Meet women from our legislature and hear why they chose this path, and what they are working on. Visit our beautiful capitol building, discuss current issues, and learn more about citizenship and our state. Our morning legislators include: Lt. Governor Susan Bysiewicz, Secretary of the State Denise Merrill, Rep. Michelle Cook, and Rep. Noreen Kokoruda!


This year, there will be two tracks: one for Juniors & Cadettes, and one for Seniors & Ambassadors. While we begin our day together, please be sure you are registering for the appropriate track. For registration purposes, each track is set up as its own event. If you have a multi-level group, sign up by the two ranges and plan on adults staying with the younger group.

Please read this schedule and notes carefully. Be sure you register into the appropriate event/category.

A patch for the day is included for Girl members. While we will not be providing citizenship badges, you will have a listing how activities relate to badges. A letter describing the day will be available for girls who wish to bring it in to school.
