GAM is a friendly, mariner competition among senior Girl Scout troops. Traditionally planned and carried out by a committee of senior Girl Scouts from each participating troop.  This multi-council wide event usually involves about 15+ troops and is is a 2 night camping event, and the camp clock is packed tight.

 

There are about 25 different events in which to compete: land skills, boating and swimming events, and even singing events!  Some activities require the participation of the entire troop, while others are designed for individuals or small groups.  Boating and land skills take place on Saturday and on Sunday we have the swimming events.There is a 100 question multiple choice test (called the Class A-skills test)that every participant must take on Saturday morning in 6 or 7 different categories. This is a troop competition so it is very important to work together as a team, show troop spirit, and have fun!
