A fun time was had by all at the 31st Annual Boo at the Zoo Event held at the Denver Zoo. Girl Scouts of Colorado held a presence at the Zoo with a ghoulishly decked-out tent near Sheep Mountain! We, of course, had our birthday hats on as well to celebrate Founder’s Day.
Halloween morning started with a chill, but morning light broke through the near-freezing temperatures to awaken zoo animals and reveal a prominent and friendly Billy Goat taking watch over the Girl Scout tent. From the moment the zoo opened until its doors at 9 a.m. to the last little princesses and miniature Batmans waddling out the gates after 9 p.m., GSCO staff and volunteers handed out candy to more than 20,000 people, speaking to parents and girls interested in troop involvement throughout Metro Denver. As the day went on, there was no shortage of smiles and laughing.
The Girl Scouts of Colorado would like to extend a mountain of gratitude to its tent sponsor, King Soopers, for a generous contribution that provided the Girl Scout involvement at Boo at the Zoo. Not only did GSCO get to showcase its mighty “Girl power prowess”—and instill excitement for girl leadership in Denver’s youth, GSCO held the honor of personally connecting with the community to provide Colorado girls with opportunities to build courage, confidence and character!
Thank you to staff members, volunteer, girls, and community partners who helped make this event a success: Denver Zoo, Entercom, and King Soopers. We would not be successful without you!
