Hike the Appalachian Trail During the Great Escape
Are you wondering what new and different thing to do at GE? Did you celebrate the GS birthday 
already (maybe a LOT-maybe not at all), but are thinking you'd like something different and 

Read below and see if you might like to join us for this once in a lifetime event happening 
as a Great Escape activity!  If so, go to Great Escape to sign up.  

You will get transportation to the Trail, a box lunch, a patch and make a donation to the 
Appalachian Trail Conservancy, all for $8 and the GE signup fee.  Not to mention a great 
breakfast and dinner at the Great Escape.


Make it a birthday to remember!

We are looking for Girl Scouts of all ages (from 5 to 95) to pick a section of the Appalachian
Trail to hike in honor of our 100th anniversary. Our hiking journey starts Monday,
March 12, 2012 (Girl Scouts 100th birthday) and ends Wednesday, October 31, 2012
(Juliette Gordon Low’s 152nd birthday).
Our event’s Honorary Chair Mary “Mama Boots” Sands inspired this celebratory hike. As a
Girl Scout Leader in Kentucky (Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana) she began hiking and backpacking
the Appalachian Trail in the early 1970s. Over the course of nearly 20 years, accompanied by
groups of Girl Scout girls and adults, she eventually hiked the entire 2000+ miles of the AT – in
bits and pieces or section-hiking.
So join your sister Girl Scouts across the East Coast – across the nation – across the globe
who are gathering to hike the Appalachian Trail in 2012 to  celebrate our golden years.
