Property Use: Parents of Girl Scouts Ages 4-17

 
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. From your answers, we'll be able to learn about the kinds of facilities your daughter would enjoy visiting to have fun, develop lasting friendships, and learn outstanding leadership skills. 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.
