As an AHG member, you'll have access to merit badge programs, engaging service projects, exciting girl leadership opportunities, and memorable outdoor experiences.

Join us at Troop 131, where we meet on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays from 4-5:30 pm., August through April. While most of our girls are homeschooled, it's not a requirement. Each meeting kicks off with a flag ceremony and devotion, followed by grade/age-specific group activities. Girls love earning badges, serving others, and forming lasting friendships. It's an incredible place to connect and grow!

High School Science Bowl Teams

Are you ready for a thrilling challenge that will test your knowledge and quick thinking? Join us for the Science Bowl, a fast-paced tournament where each team member is armed with a buzzer, buzzing in to answer questions and earn points for your team.

But here's the catch - buzzing in too early could give points to the other team! It's a strategic game that will keep you on your toes, covering topics like Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Math, Earth & Space Science, and Energy.

We're looking for four players and an alternate to join our competition team. If you're interested, sign up by October 1st during team registration. Don't worry if you're new to the Science Bowl - our weekly practices are open to all students interested in science, providing a great opportunity to learn and prepare for future competitions.

Even if you don't make the competition team this year, joining our practices is an excellent way to sharpen your skills and be better prepared for next year's team selection.

Join us for an exciting journey of learning, teamwork, and friendly competition!
