The maximum number of participants is 25 girls and 10 leaders per program. For culinary programs, the maximum number of participants is 14 girls and 5 leaders. All accompanying leaders and parents are required to pay the program fee.

Space is limited and programs are designed for specific age groups and badge related activities, we kindly ask for no siblings or tagalongs.  Thank you for your understanding!  We invite these individuals to explore the outdoor grounds or the Conservatory (with admission fee) until program is completed.
