Environmental Education Tip:

Spending time outside has been proven to lower your blood pressure and reduce stress. A night sleeping under the stars at Tanganyika is the perfect way to get some fresh air and spend time with your den, pack, or troop!

Dream Trip Taken!

“The Girl Scouts of Troop 4337 from Holden, Missouri love everything to do with animals. They want to know how to care for animals, what they face as their species and making a difference for them. These Girl Scout also work so hard at their Product Program sales and planned and saved for this awesome experience. This summer they were thrilled to take a trip to Tanganyika Wildlife Park where they stayed overnight and received an extraordinary VIP experience. These Girl Scouts swam with penguins, fed all kinds of animals, learned all about endangered species and how to help. It was a trip they will not forget!” – Troop 4337
