Father-Daughter Event Ideas (That’s Not a Dance)

Father-daughter dances are a great way for girls and dads to bond…until they arrive at the dance. Then the girls run crazy with their friends, and the men cling to the walls like they did in junior high.

Still, service units like the idea of engaging dads and other men in their Girl Scouts’ lives. So what can you offer that’s NOT a father-daughter dance?
