Inclement Weather Policy & Schedule Updates

PGMA Girl Scouts follow P.G. County Schools’ inclement weather schedule. If school is closed during a troop meeting day, we will not have a troop meeting.


  • The daycare tour will be rescheduled for some time next month, depending on the weather, inshaAllah.
  • Girls should take this opportunity to work in buddies and truddies to create their Mother’s Day Out schedule. Your timeframe is from 12 noon to 5PM.


The Junior trip to the Rock Creek Park Nature Center Planetarium will be rescheduled inshaAllah.

Be safe and enjoy the weather responsibly.

There’s plenty to participate in:

  • Show what you know about the Girl Scouts, women’s history and current events in the Newseum’s popular NewsMania game show.
  • Scour historic front pages for certain items while racing across a giant game board in Front Page Frenzy.
  • Learn how women’s suffrage activists used their First Amendment rights to bring attention to their cause.
  • Attend the Girl Scouts’ Conversations of Consequence.
  • Decorate a tote bag, button or slap bracelet celebrating your right to free expression.
  • Go on an adventure with the Nellie Bly Global Scavenger Hunt.
  • Join a gallery talk on women in journalism.

Girls should dress appropriately for the weather and wear their vests. Also, bring a bag lunch, Metro fare and money to spend on food, patches or goodies. Parents are needed to chaperone. Girls and tagalongs under age six (6) are free.

Exploring the Night Sky, Jan 24 (J)

junior_camper_largeAs a part of their Camper badge, Juniors will be learning more about the night sky at the Young Planetarium at Rock Creek Park Nature Center. Girls will discover the brightest stars, planets, and constellations of the season and hear their stories in the only planetarium in the National Park System.

Free tickets to each planetarium show may be picked up at the Nature Center front desk up to one-half hour before the show. For visitor safety no admittance will be permitted once the planetarium doors close.

Girls should wear comfortable clothing and their Girl Scout vest. Out of respect for other planetarium guests, it is highly recommended that parents abide by the age recommendations: 5 years and older. Tagalongs ages 5 and above and other levels — like the Cadettes who were just working on their Night Owl badge — are welcome, but must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

What: Winter Night Sky
Who: Juniors
When: Sunday, January 24, 2016, 12:45 – 2PM (promptly)
Where: Young Planetarium at Rock Creek Park Nature Center
5200 Glover Rd. NW, Washington, DC, 20015
Cost: Free
