This year Coastal Rompers consists of girls (6th grade & up) from Brentwood, Newmarket, Stratham, Keene, Sutton, Dover, Barrington and Northwood. Together we will take exciting trips to explore the wonders of the seashore and learn how to protect and preserve our coastal resources. Each year, we take Program Aide Specialst training and gain leadership skills while working with younger Brownies and Juniors at various GSGWM events.
