Between Earth and Sky



You'll join your flower friends for a cross-country road trip in their special flower-powered car! As you travel the country, you'll learn to use your own special skills to help people and Planet Earth.

This is a 10-session Journey, but could be modified to fit your troop’s needs. For more information, check out GSUSA's site.
