Girl Scout Junior troop takes on Kids Zone at Denver American Indian Festival in Thornton

This year’s Kids Zone is gearing up for another year of family fun.  There will be a variety of crafts for ages that are focused on nature and American Indian culture.

What’s different about this year’s Kids Zone is that it’s being hosted by Girl Scout Troop 63787.  This group of 5th grade girls are Girl Scout Juniors and they are taking on the responsibility of planning and running the Kids Zone crafts as their Bronze Award project. The Bronze Award is the highest honor a Girl Scout Junior can achieve.  One of the steps towards earning this award is identifying a project in their community where they can make a difference. Some of our girls have volunteered at this event in the past and felt this was a fun way to help support cultural awareness in their community.  Taking on this project enables the girls to improve on skills such as teamwork, planning, decision making, leadership, and communication.  We also hope they will come away feeling proud they were able to help give something back to their community.

Join us for a free, fun family event next weekend and be sure to stop by the Kids Zone and see these girls in action!
