Leader's Weekend

Leader's Weekend

Held at Finbrooke Program Center every April, this event is a fun tradition for Girl Scout volunteers and a great way to connect with friends, old and new, who share your love of Girl Scouting! Join us April 17-19, 2020, to choose from a variety of activities to create your own adventure!

Register for Leader's Weekend

Workshops include art classes, games, team building, leadership, outdoor training, and mystery workshops! You can even choose to participate in some high-flying adventures like the climbing tower, archery, or the night-time zipline! You can choose how long you stay--come for the whole weekend or just the day on Saturday. Lodging is available, but space is limited. Registration opens each winter.

No matter what you choose to do, you will leave re-energized and ready to continue your journey with Girl Scouts!

Event Details

Schedule. Leader’s Weekend is so much more than workshops… We’ll have great food, SWAPS, ongoing activity options, and more throughout the weekend. Register for the entire weekend or come and go from the event as you wish. The gate will close at 11:00 p.m. every night.

Event Fee.  Your $15 event fee covers lodging, administrative supplies, and Saturday lunch and snacks. Additional fees apply to some workshops and other meals.

Meals. Staying the weekend? Join your fellow volunteers for Saturday breakfast and dinner. Menus and meal prices can be found during registration.

Special Needs. We want this to be a weekend with no worries! If you have dietary, health, or other needs that will affect your experience at Leader’s Weekend, let us know in advance so we can accommodate your needs.

Memorabilia. Event t-shirts, patches, tote bags, and bandanas must be paid with your order. Deadline to order merchandise is March 2, 2020.

Mobility. Pack your walking shoes! Finbrooke is a walking camp, and participants will travel by foot to sleeping units and throughout camp during class sessions. We will have “shuttle” spaces available for participants with a medical need. Please indicate your need during registration.

Adults Only. Leader’s Weekend is a retreat for adults only. Children of any age are not permitted at the event.


Choose the workshops that most interests you! Read the workshop descriptions, then indicate your choices during registration in order of preference. Some workshop sessions will fill quickly and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. We’ll do our best to get you into your first or second choice; if your second choice is also full, you will be registered for free time.

Workshops range from beeswax candles to exploring space science to archey, the climbing tower, and more! Check out the complete workshop descriptions in the Leader's Weekend Registration Packet.
