Q. Can I get a discount on the facility rental?
A. Discounts for the Program Center are not available, however we encourage troops visit together! Plan a get together for two or more troops to split the cost of the reservation and food. Then split up food preparation duties and activities if you want!
Q. Can I reserve single rooms, or reserve the facility by the hour?
A. Currently, reservations are only available half day, full day and overnight.
Q. How do I get into the building on the day that I arrive?
A. We have a group of dedicated volunteers who let groups into the building and locking up after them. We let them know your arrival time, so it is important to ensure you list the correct arrival time when reserving your date. It is also important to put an up-to-date phone number (preferably cell number) so if you do not arrive at your scheduled time, the volunteer can reach you by phone.
Q. My service unit would like to host a meeting at the Program Center, what do we do?
A. We offer the Program Center free for service units who would like to host their meeting at the facility. All other service unit events are charged the Girl Scout fee for reservations. Please refer to the process listed above for reserving the Program Center for your service unit meeting.
Q. What are my responsibilities for cleaning the facility?
A. You are responsible for following the checkout procedure defined for troops/groups. Please give yourself ample time for cleanup as the Program Center is a large space. A general list of duties includes, removing trash, vacuuming and sweeping floors, cleaning kitchen and putting away all dishes used, and ensuring all rooms are returned to their original set up. We encourage your group to develop a kaper chart, or chore list, and engage the girls in the cleaning process as a Girl Scout always leaves a place cleaner than she found it!
Q. I am planning an event or overnight, can I see the facility before the actual event to make sure I am ready for everything?
A. We would love to have you stop by for a tour before your event to ensure you are prepared. Email ProgramCenterReservations@GirlScoutsToday.org and we can work with you to find a time that works for a visit.
