Thank you for taking a few minutes of your time to take this survey about properties owned by the Girl Scouts - Diamonds of Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas.

It's important to know what girls think! Even though you may not be a Girl Scout now, the information you give us will help us develop the kinds of facilities that will be fun places for girls to visit, make new friends, get close to nature, and develop wonderful leadership skills that will put girls way ahead.

It will probably take about 15-20 minutes for you to complete the survey. Please answer every question as accurately as you can. Your participation is completely voluntary, and will be anonymous. Your name will not be shared with anyone. Taking the survey means that you have given us your permission to participate. You can stop participating in the survey at any point, but completed surveys will help us the most with our goal of providing the best camps possible with our resources.

Thank you again for your help with this very important project, and thank you for helping us learn more about our camp programs and property needs.
