We’re wrapping up yet another awesome year of game-changing, big-thinking, risk-taking Girl Scout fun here at GSNorCal. And if you’re a go-getter (which we all know you are—you’re a Girl Scout after all!), here’s a quick checklist to help you prepare for the New Year!
Traditions have a magical way of bringing people together. Richel shares some of her troop’s holiday traditions that helped her girls bond and feel more like a family. And with the holidays right around the corner, there’s no better time for your troop to make some special traditions of their own!
No one likes the idea of “chores”, but at Girl Scouts, kapers and kaper charts are a classic troop management tool that help troops stay organized, get things done, and avoid unnecessary drama over the timeless issue of “but it’s my turn”… all while keeping meeting activities girl-led!
In Girl Scouts, our girls do a lot of projects that help our local communities and make the world a better place, but some awards require them to go a step further and Take Action. In this blog post, Courtney breaks down both community service projects and Take Action projects, so you and your girls can better understand the difference between the two.
Design may sound useful in art, but it’s just as important for STEM! Get your girls to start thinking like engineers as they practice the design process and take their cookie booths to the next level.
At Girl Scouts of Northern California, we believe opportunity and experiences are the greatest gifts of all. Whether you are searching for the perfect gift for that proud Girl Scout in your life or you want to give back and help support the next generation of Girl Scouts, our 2017 gift guide has something for everyone.
