Here is a list of resources to assist leaders and girls in completing their journeys. So many of these resources are laid out so journeys can be completed in a day or a weekend and many encompass a few meetings or more. Most of these will have to be tailored to fit your troop and some of them would make a great plan for a service unit or council to put on a ???Journey in a Day??? or ???Journey in a Weekend??? event.
NEW Safety information! GSUSA has updated and changed Safety-Wise to a new format.
