Earning the “First Aid” badge

Submitted by Samantha King

Pueblo & Southeastern CO

Pueblo

Girl Scouts in Pueblo West had fun learning hands-on first aid at a recent workshop held by Service Unit 338. Girl Scouts spoke to an RN and a representative from Red Cross. They learned about 911, wound care, CPR, what to do if someone is choking, and what steps to take in an emergency situation. All girls had fun, earned a badge, learned important skills, and left the workshop able to better help the community and people around them.

Junior Troop 416 earns “Business Owner” badge at Rita’s

Submitted by Christy Knight

Castle Rock

Junior Troop 416 earned the “Business Owner” badge at Rita’s Italian Ice Creamery in Castle Rock. The girls learned how the owners decided to open the small business and some of the steps of setting up the store. They learned about marketing and customer service. They toured the store, watched how the ice was made, and learned about day-to-day operations. The girls also got to taste some of the ice! The owners answered all the girls questions about the business. They had a first-hand experience about small business and learned a lot of new information.

We loved learning about this small business that does a lot to help their community. Knowing about future options is exciting! We were able to ask so many questions.

The tenth grade girls of Troop 73392 are currently working on the “Senior Cross Training” badge. The girls identified fitness goals such as eating healthier, reducing junk food, and being more consistent in exercising on a regular basis.

After identifying goals, the girls kicked off the cardiovascular part of their badge with kayaking/paddleboarding across McIntosh Lake.

The girls also wanted to work on flexibility and stretching. They returned to McIntosh Lake to practice yoga with Left Hand Yoga. Left Hand Yoga offers a free community class on Sunday morning at 11. During the summer/early fall months, the class is held at McIntosh Lake with a beautiful view of the mountains.

$15/girl

Register at: https://www.girlscoutsofcolorado.org/content/girlscoutsofcolorado/en/events-repository/2018/day_of_dance_with_th.html

Join Girl Scouts of Colorado at Colorado Ballet for Day of Dance! Girl Scouts will experience four different dance genres throughout the day including ballet, creative/modern, folk, and a form of world dance. Dancers will be exposed to the specific techniques as well as improvisation and dance concepts. Brownies can work on the requirements for the “Dancer” badge.

Girls: Wear comfortable clothing that you can move in! Colorado Ballet recommends anyone under the age of seven to be barefoot as it helps to integrate plantar reflexes. Otherwise, barefoot is great for all ages, unless girls have ballet slippers or socks they would like to wear in ballet class.

Bring a water bottle, snacks, and lunch. Girls will be asked to eat snacks and lunch in the hallway and not in the studios. Water bottles are OK in the studios.

Parents, troop leaders, and guardians: This is not a drop off event. Adult to girl ratios for events must be met (link tohttp://gscoblog.org/volunteer-essentials/safety-wise/). Please do not enter rooms while classes are in session. There is a waiting space and time to be with girls during breaks and lunch.

Parking: Park at the lot on 11th and Santa Fe.

Special thanks to the Sunset Hills service unit for helping execute this wonderful event this year and in many years past! All attendees must have a current Girl Scout membership.
