What a perfect time of year to show your family and friends your baking skills. You could do a cookie exchange with your friends or family for the holidays or just bake cookies for fun because they are delicious! Girls participating in this session will learn food safety, how to properly measure ingredients, how to store your baked items, oven/hot item safety, and lastly, how to bake cookies!

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.

Girl Scout troop starting at Town Center at Aurora

Girls, ages 5-17, who are looking for a fun, new activity to do at their local mall this summer should check out the new Girl Scout troop starting at the Town Center at Aurora on Tuesday, July 17th. The five-week Tuesday night program (ends August 14th), which will run from 5 to 6:30 p.m., will feature activities to empower girls for a successful, healthy future. Participants will have fun creating a cookbook of family recipes, learning cooking secrets from a local chef, participating in a fitness class at Sweat Equity Fitness, and making new friends there. The cost to join is just $25 for all five sessions, with financial assistance available ($13 if you are already a registered Girl Scout). Additionally, Spanish speakers will be on-hand to assist with translation. For more information or to reserve your spot in this troop, please call 720-775-7655 or e-mail emily.novak@gscolorado.org. Girls will gather in the mall’s food court before each meeting to be escorted to the “behind the scenes” conference room meeting location.
