Get started on your 2018 summer programming
Thinking of leading a day camp, family camp, or troop camp open to other troops or groups next year? The first step in your planning is to meet with Anna Danila, outdoor program manager. This applies to programs lasting longer than one day and/or those including an overnight experience. Email Anna to set up a meeting.
Volunteer with OGAB
The Older Girl Advisory Board is seeking adult volunteers to help guide this high-level group of girls in making their voices heard. The Older Girl Advisory Board, also known as OGAB, is a group of 14 girls in grades 9-12 from across the state of Colorado who provide feedback on projects ranging from mentoring to program development to older girl engagement to product sales. Adult volunteers would act as chaperones during periodic overnight camp retreats and commit to participating in one web call per month with the OGAB representatives. Volunteers need to possess strong organizational and communication skills and work well with teenagers.
Contact Katie Singleton for more information and to apply for one of these unique adult volunteer positions.
New Journeys coming soon
New Journeys and badges will be released through the Volunteer Toolkit this summer! The Journeys will include Think Like an Engineer, Think Like a Programmer, and Think Like a Citizen Scientist. Look for more information coming soon.
Congratulations, Top Sellers!
Cookie Top Sellers will be celebrated over the next few weeks at our annual top seller events. Any girls who sold 750 packages or more during the 2017 Cookie Sale Program and have not received their invitation should contact their Product Sales Specialist immediately to RSVP.
All Cookie Credit Cards, including those held at council for camp that were not used, have been mailed directly to each girl who earned them. If credits have not been received please reach out to the Product Sales Team as soon as possible to see if they have been returned to council for any reason.
This year’s Fall Sale Program will begin on September 23. Look for more information next month!
