GSCO Photo Challenge: Brownies away from home

Submitted by Karen Grealy

Parker

In 2018, our Girl Scouts attended the Brownie Camporee at Tomahawk Ranch. They were between 7 and 8-years-old, and for nearly all the girls, it was their first time away from home. Not only did they earn their “Girl Scout Way” and “Potter” badges, they also completed the “Wonders of Water” Journey by assisting with planting a garden at Tomahawk. They had a wonderful time!

These Girl Scouts were risk-takers by leaving their parents for two nights. It was hard for some of them, but they ended-up having so much fun. They will be spending their 2019 cookie proceeds on camp again this year!

Girl Scouts of Colorado is hosting a photo challenge! Just submit your favorite Girl Scout photo and the story behind it using the Share Your Stories form (www.gscoblog.org/share). Winners will be featured in future GSCO marketing materials, on GSCO’s social media networks, and on the GSCO Blog.

Girl Scout Brownies from Colorado Springs had a blast learning all about cybersecurity at a badge workshop hosted by Troop 43810.

The Cadettes and Seniors of Troop 43810 planned, organized, and held the workshop for Brownies to earn all three cybersecurity badges in a fun, active way. Dozens of Girl Scout Brownies got to play a life-sized board game, crack real life codes, and learn about their real and digital fingerprints.

The go-getters of Troop 43810 are using the funds from the event for national and international travel plans!

Cybersecurity field trip

Broomfield

Brownie Troop 65575 took a field trip to the Apple Store at Flatirons Mall and earned their “Cybersecurity Basics” and “Cybersecurity Safeguard” badges. They learned about the internet and the importance of protecting themselves online.

At their next meeting, the Brownies expanded on the things they learned by working together to design castles. The girls had very imaginative ideas of ways to protect their castles and we talked about why it’s important to protect themselves online.

We’re excited to dig deeper into cybersecurity when they earn their “Cybersecurity Investigator” badge!
