53rd-Annual Girl Scout Day

September 21, 2024 @10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Girl Scouts on Grandfather Mountain for Girl Scout Day

Girl Scouts are invited to join the park’s naturalists for a fun-filled learning adventure on Grandfather Mountain. Plus, all Girl Scouts and troop leaders are admitted free with proof of membership (all or part of a uniform or a troop roster with the leader’s name on it), and family members will receive discounted admission ($1 off child admission and $2 off adult admission). Advance reservations for park admission are not required, meaning scouts, troop leaders and family members are welcome to arrive the day of the event without admission tickets already in hand.

Tips for making your visit with us fun and comfortable:

  • Please carpool. We are open to the public on Girl Scout Day, and parking may be limited.
  • Dress for mountain weather: wind, rain, cold temperatures. We can be 10+ degrees cooler than your home base. Bring waterproof, windproof jackets, sneakers / athletic closed-toe shoes. NO crocs, sandals, flipflops.
  • Bring a reusable water bottle…Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. We have two water-bottle refill stations. They are located in the Wilson Center for Nature Discovery lobby (behind the bear statue) and the Top Shop first floor.
  • Pack your own lunch to avoid waiting in line at Mildred’s Grill. Lines can get very long around lunchtime, especially on busy Saturdays in the fall.

The day has a robust schedule of simultaneous offerings (which may be subject to change). Scouts are welcome to pick and choose activities from a program list to be posted here.

Grandfather Mountain’s daily program schedule will also be in full swing! Find more details about these daily programs here.
