HTH Delivery and Social Distancing Bike Ride

Submitted by Sandi DeCamp

Broomfield

Sixth grade Girl Scout Cadette Troop 60594 from Broomfield delivered cookies to their Hometown Heroes by way of a social distancing bike ride. We loaded up a bike trailer with the cookies, a poster sized thank you card, and took to a bike path. The girls had fun riding their bikes. Proving they can have fun anywhere, the girls created a “bike wave” as they rode-similar to a stadium audience wave. It was our own personal bike parade!

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.

Changing perceptions

Everyday in my life, I change people’s perspectives about people who are differently abled. I am friendly and outgoing. I am not afraid to talk to anyone. I almost always inspire a smile from those around me. A Longmont police officer visited my booth. He was friendly too, just like me! I love being a Girl Scout and I especially love selling cookies!

Day camp volunteer search for Broomfield

Submitted by Rebecca Lankford

Metro Denver

Broomfield

With winter break just around the corner, it may seem wild to be thinking about Summer 2020 already, but that’s just what we’re doing! We’re looking for volunteers to help our day camps be successful. Volunteers don’t have to be troop leaders – any Girl Scout parent is eligible.

Troop 63572 is hosting two day camps in the Broomfield area over the summer. Magical Mysteries will take place at Interlocken Park June 15 – 19 and Magical Mysteries will take place at Cross of Christ Lutheran Church July 27-31. Adults who volunteer for a week can get their girl’s entire registration fee reimbursed – free camp!

Volunteering at day camp is a lot of fun and is a great way to give back to Girl Scouts. As an adult volunteer at our camps, you step in only when needed – the older girls run the show and plan the activities. Being a volunteer at day camp is a great way to share the Girl Scout progression and be a part of the leadership experience.
