Happy Birthday Our Chalet: Activities for Thursday, July 30, 2020

Submitted by the GSCO Global Action Committee

On Friday, July 31, Our Chalet celebrates its 88th Birthday! Girl Scouts of Colorado sends their best wishes to Our Chalet, one of the five World Centres of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts.  This is going to be an exciting and fun week with five days of celebration for this birthday! Do you like it when your birthday celebrations spread out over more than one day? If so, watch the GSCO Blog each day so you can celebrate with girls from all around the world.

On our fourth day, we would also like to mention the July birthdays of two other World Centres of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS).

Our newest World Centre is Kusafiri in Africa, which moves around from country to country for different events. Kusafiri celebrated its ninth birthday on July 15. To learn more about Kusafiri, watch a video about the Centre’s history and learn some African dances. You can also visit Kusafiri’s Facebook Page and see some of their activities! Kusafiri means “to journey” in Swahili, one of the many languages of Africa.

Our Cabana in Mexico is the second oldest World Centre. It celebrated its 63rd birthday on July 24. Let’s go a little closer to home and travel to Mexico and Our Cabana. Here is a great tour of the buildings and the gardens and the pool. Need a swim today?

We want to hear how your girl is using her Girl Scout skills by taking initiative, caring for the community, and Girl Scouting at home. She can send in her story here.
