I have a theme! The Latino Heritage Festival is this fall at the Zoo! Perfect. I even know someone on the festival board. They can do a service project ahead of time and make flowers that will be passed out at the festival. They can do challenges at the zoo. They will have Latino activities there and ethnic food. It's perfect!

Now I need ideas on Latino challenges.

No problem. I'll let you know what I end up doing. I have lots of ideas for games. I am trying to decide if I want a theme or not. Just need to get an idea for sleeping and food. I think the girls will love it.

The Amazing Race idea is awesome!! I'm a CAD/SR leader that'd be SO cool for older girls. Do you mind if I use your idea for an event in the Fall?

Thanks for sharing it!

Our girls aren't allowed to pick up trash, but I thought I would try to throw in a service project somehow.

I know that our zoo does overnighters for the council. I don't know what that would cost though. Would be fun, that's for sure.

We haven't done it yet, but there is a zoo not far from us that allows scout troops to do sleep overs there. Not sure if any of those places would allow you to stay there in addition to using the other places for the race? Might add a little dynamic to get to sleep someplace odd!

Hey Kris
I have also been thinking about an Amazing Race type event. I am not that ambitious though ours will be a one day event. I thought of incorporating simple guiding skills, build a rope ladder, make a fire and boil water, find a specific book in the local library- clue will be inside, codes, we have a quad bike track close by so I would include that, a bit of hiking. We would invite other units to join us and the girls will work in mixed teams of 2 Guides and 2 Brownies with a designated driver for each group. Oh yes they would also pick up litter somewhere or something like that. We have 3 Guide halls in a 20km radius which we could use but I want to make it a big event with sponsers and prizes etc, maybe make a blanket badge for all participants. I will keep you posted.
I am going to have a look at your site and see if I can get any other ideas though Thanks

We don't have the power to make rainbows or waterfalls, sunsets or roses but we do carry within us the power to make the world a better place.

I just found this awesome site-

http://www.thesource4ym.com/events/

It has great event ideas. I might use some of these for my Amazing Race. I love the "Real Clue" game.

The team building has some fun games too.

I want to plan an Amazing Race event for the older GS. I need some ideas of where to go, what to do, etc. I want to start on a Saturday morning and go to late Sunday afternoon. I need a creative place to spend the night, yet stay cost effective. My first thought is a church or the GS council. I hoped someone else might have a better idea.

Or just ideas of things they could do for activities. I never watched the Amazing Race, so I don't know a lot about it. But I think the girls would love the concept.

We have a speedway, theater, capitol, science museum, natural history museum. Living History Farms-9like an old fashioned farm) I have access to a police department. I am thinking they can go all over Des Moines. There are a couple of colleges. It would be in the fall.

I'll take any ideas you have.

Thanks Kris
