Diverse. Together. Inclusive.
Girl Scouts of Colorado is proud to unveil ways for everyone, not just girls or Girl Scouts, to develop an appreciation for the rich diversity of various cultures in their community and around the world.
GSCO is partnering with Children’s Hospital Colorado, Colorado Mountain College, Denver Public Schools, and Denver7 on a new Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion patch program, adapted from a program developed by our Girl Scout sisters in Minneapolis.
The program is designed to help participants start the conversation about race and racism by learning to appreciate diversity and honor and celebrate differences. Grant funding will provide FREE patches to the first 750 Girl Scouts of Colorado girl members who complete all activity and reporting requirements. Use this online form to request your patch.
In addition, “Conversation Starters: Let’s Talk Differences” virtual roundtables on July 30 and August 13 will give families the tools they need to begin talking about issues related to race and racism. Both parents and children will deepen their understanding and respect for people who may be different from them and learn how to better relate to others. RSVP now for the Conversation Starters and submit your questions for our experts.
In-Person Gatherings Guidelines
Girl Scouts of Colorado is allowing in-person gatherings of troops and groups as long as they follow social distancing and safety guidelines. At this time, state guidelines allow groups of 10 to gather and maintain 6-feet of social distance between non-family members. COVID-19 has made different impacts in different locations. You may follow the current guidelines posted in your county, however gatherings should be limited to the size of one troop (no service unit in-person gatherings at this point). Please review this document with GSCO recommendations and links to county restrictions before planning your in-person activities. All minor and adult participants will need to have a COVID waiver on file with Girl Scouts of Colorado. We will continue to monitor local, state, and national guidelines, and re-evaluate our status every two weeks.
All GSCO property reservations are canceled through July 31. Refunds are being processed.
Note: These guidelines are in effect for all in-person Girl Scout gatherings, including those where girls might not be present. For more information about how Girl Scouts of Colorado is working to keep our community safe, visit our website.

GSUSA’s National Service Projects
Girl Scouts are always prepared to shine, especially during a crisis. From connecting with senior citizens to making masks and face coverings, see how you can make the world a better place right now. Now your troop can get involved too!
Girl Scouts Give Back: Citizen Science: This summer, your troop can contribute to important scientific research by participating in one of our Girl Scouts Give Back citizen science projects. We’ve partnered with SciStarter, an online citizen science community, to help get you going!
Mask Making Service Project: Now, with this nationwide mask-making campaign, all girls have the chance to step up to help their friends, neighbors, and frontline workers during the COVID-19 pandemic. And we’ve partnered with Feeding America, a network of local food banks across the U.S., to make it easy for your girls to amplify their efforts.
Letter Writing Service Project: The idea is simple: girls write letters to people in nursing homes, senior residences, and assisted living facilities, including the dedicated staff and caregivers. This long-distance hug is a way to share your good thoughts with these vulnerable and loved community members.
Visit the GSUSA National Service Projects page for full details on each project.
