A day of vibrant experiences, vital learning, and valuable connections beckons in downtown Phoenix as the Girl Scouts-Arizona Cactus-Pine Council (GSACPC) welcomes the return of The Believe In Girls (B.I.G.) Event on Sat., Nov. 11, from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., at ASU Preparatory Academy, 735 E. Fillmore St.

This much-anticipated event is not only a haven for Girl Scouts but also extends its warm embrace to families, friends, and anyone interested in learning about or supporting the organization. The B.I.G. Event transforms the academy into a bustling carnival, promising a stimulating and joyous afternoon brimming with activities aimed at fostering a spirit of community, exploration, and empowerment among the attendees.

““With the return of The B.I.G. Event, girls and families will have the chance to explore the wide range of impactful programs that Girl Scouts has to offer and spark sisterhoods that last a lifetime,” says Christina Spicer, co-CEO of GSACPC. “It was designed as a fun-filled afternoon of Girl Scouting activities for the whole family.”

Dotted with numerous interactive stations, the event provides a fertile ground for girls to intertwine with community partners, mingle with their Girl Scout sisters, and immerse themselves in hands-on programs. With a hearty focus on STEM, outdoors, life skills, and entrepreneurship, the activities are crafted to echo the multifaceted essence of Girl Scouting.

The heartwarming return of The B.I.G. Event, after a hiatus, is a resonant reminder of the Girl Scouts’ resilience and unwavering commitment to shaping future leaders through diverse and enriching experiences.

A spectrum of entertainment and activities awaits attendees: from soaring on a zipline and scaling a climbing tower to grooving to the tunes spun by a DJ and delighting in an array of culinary treats offered by food trucks.

Moreover, families will find joy in various zones, including a lively bounce house and interactive booths hosted by a robust line-up of partner organizations, such as Arizona Coyotes, Arizona Science Center, EF Tours for Girls, iFLY Indoor Skydiving – STEM Education Program, and many more, each bringing a unique flavor and learning experience to the event.
