Girl Scout Cadettes, Seniors and Ambassadors are preparing for the big race across the finish line at the Dubuque Dragon Boat Festival September 6-8!

Dubuque Dragon Boat Association’s motto is “Friendship through Paddling.”  It encourages friendship building around the world and provides Asian culture education through dragon boating.

The Dubuque Dragon Boat Association fosters this through the dragon boat competition for first place and the competition for the Spirit Award.   The team that shows the most spirit both on and off the water will win the Spirit Award, the highest and most significant award.

This year will mark the fourth year Girl Scouts of Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois has competed and in 2010 we won the Spirit Award! We will work as a team to race hard, but cheer on other teams even harder.

Camp Little Cloud will be our home base where prior to race day, the team will complete team building activities and create cheers.

If you’re thinking, “This sounds like fun. I’d like to try this.” You’re in luck! We’re looking to build our team of rowers and team captains! Click here to learn more and register today!
