Important Info for Girl Scout Day at the Capitol

Click here for some reminders and tips for the event!

Please note that the Legislative Office (LOB) and Capitol buildings will be busy! They’ll be in session, and there will also be Catholic School families on site. This means that parking will be tight. Carpool and be prepared. We’ve given some parking suggestions, but be prepared by checking online and on maps for alternate sites.

Please be sure to check-in and double-check for any information changes on easels in the LOB 2nd floor atrium.  

We anticipate that Girl Scout Day at the Capitol will run as planned. In case of extreme weather and the state buildings are closed, we’ll post information on our homepage.


This year’s theme: Emotional Health!
“Because I’m a Girl Scout, I’m free to be me!”
