Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia welcomed more than 1,000 people to Savannah, Georgia on July 13-16, 2017 to compete in the first ever Girl Scout QuestFest. Teams, which were made up of girls and leaders from 22 states, Puerto Rico and Canada, raced through Savannah’s Historic District to solve clues, complete challenges, carry out random acts of kindness and give back to the community. When participants weren’t Questing, they were enjoying several other events throughout the area.
