Saturday, November 11, 2017, Kappa Delta Sorority invites you and your Girl Scouts to join our last workshop of the fall semester from noon -3 p.m.

Kappa Delta Sorority created International Girls Day (IDG) as both an initiative and national holiday. With the theme “She Can Do Anything,” it’s a day to build confidence in girls and help them realize their potential (more information about IGD can be found at http://www.kappadelta.org/initiatives/international-girls-day/).
Our International Girls Day celebration will be held at our chapter facility (412 W. Laurel Street, Fort Collins, CO 80521). At this workshop, we will host several confidence-building activities. Girl Scouts will also have the opportunity to work with Kappa Deltas on writing their own stories based off the children’s book “When I Was A Girl… I Dreamed” by Margaret Baker. We will also provide tea, lemonade, and sandwiches for Girl Scouts, troop leaders, and guardians in attendance!

This event is open to Girl Scouts of all ages! If you are interested in joining us, please email me (phiepsilonvpcs@gmail.com) before Thursday, November 9 at 5 p.m. with the name and age of your Girl Scout. She will also earn an International Girls Day patch for participating in the workshop (link to the patch can be found at https://www.kappadeltaboutique.com/details/category/initiatives/girl-scouts/product/round-international-girls-day-patch/).

We look forward to having you join us, and thank you for your support of the Kappa Delta/Girl Scout collaboration!

Earn Adventure badges at Colorado State University

Submitted by Mallory Wolff

Fort Collins

Kappa Delta Sorority at Colorado State University will be hosting an Adventure Campus Tour on Saturday, March 4, 2017 from noon – 3 p.m. This event would seek to offer two badges for the Girl Scouts under the “Adventure” badge category. This includes the Letterboxer badge for Brownies and Geocacher badge for Juniors. During this event, Girl Scouts would be able to tour facilities such as the student center and library on the CSU campus. As the Girl Scouts follow the tour with the Kappa Deltas, they will complete the workshop that includes the steps necessary to earn the Adventure badges. The Girl Scouts would meet at the Kappa Delta chapter facility for drop off/pick-up for the campus tour. The tour will then conclude with snacks and games on The Oval at CSU! For this event, I would suggest bringing a water bottle, comfy clothing and shoes, and snacks if your child has a severe food allergy. All Kappa Delta members are required to attend the event, so there will be a little over 100 Kappa Deltas in attendance. These members have hosted workshops with Girl Scouts in the past. Some are even alumnae! All materials will be provided to earn the badge, but troop leaders and parents are more than welcome to join us for the tour! Kappa Delta Sorority looks forward to hosting events that further values of self-esteem, confidence, and courage shared between our organization and Girl Scouts of the USA. We hope you are able to join us!

Girl Scouts provides summer science program in Greeley

Girl Scouts of Colorado once again partnered with Rodarte Cultural Center and Anna Gimmestad Memorial Park in Greeley to offer a summer Girl Scout program to local girls. This summer the program focused on the science of light (optics) through Girl Scouts of Colorado’s Lighten Up program put together in collaboration with Colorado State University. At the end of the program, the girls were very proud to have earned a patch for completing the program!

Amazing programs such as this could not be possible without our sponsors, including CenturyLink, Intel, The Women’s Fund of Weld County and Wells Fargo. A special thanks goes CenturyLink employees who volunteered their time and worked one-on-one with the children in this program! Two of the CenturyLink volunteers also presented on their careers in science or engineering for the girls. We additionally want to thank Kaarin Goncz with CSU (also a Girl Scout alum) for again partnering with us on another great Lighten Up program!
