Earn a special cybersecurity patch

Calling all Girl Scout Daisies, Brownies, and Juniors! Here’s your chance to earn a special cybersecurity patch from Girl Scouts of the USA.

Step One

Choose the cybersecurity activity appropriate for your Girl Scout level as listed in this PDF:

CybersecurityPatch_FacilitatorGuide

These activities are from the Daisy, Brownie, and Junior cybersecurity badges. If you choose to swap out another activity, we highly recommend that you use one from Badge 1: Cybersecurity Basics, since that badge teaches foundational concepts that are built on in badges 2 and 3.

Step Two

Complete the activity and take lots of photos/videos.

Step Three

Share your story and photos from the activity using the Share Your Stories form: www.gscoblog.org/share 

Be sure to include what you learned about cybersecurity and why it is so important, along with any plans you might have to earn another STEM or cybersecurity badge.

Once your story and photos have been received, public relations director AnneMarie Harper will contact you regarding the number of patches you need and where they should be mailed. Patches will be distributed on a first come, first-serve basis.

Questions? Email AnneMarie Harper at annemarie.harper@gscolorado.org.

Buena Vista Daisies deliver care packages to firefighters

Submitted by Cricket Hawkins

Buena Vista

Daisy Troop 55309 delivered three boxes of personal care packages to local firefighters who may have to be called out someday to fight forest and wildland fires in the region. The girls decided they wanted to give back to their community, shopped with troop funds, and assembled the packages for their local firehouse. During the visit on July 12, 2018, the girls also toured the firehouse and took a turn shooting water from a firehose!

Daisy Flower Garden Journey at the Denver Botanic Garden

Girl Scouts of Colorado hosted more than 250  Girl Scout Daisies from the Front Range at our annual Daisy Flower Garden Journey at the Denver Botanic Gardens recently. Girl Scouts learned about the Girl Scout Promise and Law through fun garden-themed activities! Girls visited ten tables where they heard important stories, learned Yoga, practiced the Girl Scout Promise and Law, created crafts to share with others, and planted a flower.

Daisies made Best Friends SWAPs to share. Girls also learned ways to be considerate and caring and made a thumbprint card to give to someone special.

Daisies also learned about being courageous and strong while practicing fun animal pose Yoga. Older Girl Scouts did a great job leading activities! Our Daisies had fun learning from them and our older girls were great role models for our younger girls!

Girl Scouts also learned about how to be responsible for they say and do by listening to Mari the Marigold’s story and hearing how Mari kept her promises. There was also time for extra fun! Girl Scouts enjoyed the garden and the beautiful surroundings, too. We lucked out with great weather and the garden had some beautiful spring blooms!

A BIG Thank you goes to our wonderful volunteers who made this great event possible. Girl Scouts and adults from these troops where a huge help!

Our new Daisy troop is just beginning to learn the Girl Scout Law. At our last meeting, we met Lupe the Lupine and learned about what it means to be honest and fair. Then, we practiced being fair by sharing the special pink star beads when making friendship bracelets! It just takes simple lessons to teach our Daisies how to put the Girl Scout Law into practice.

The Brownies will do “Brownie Quest.” The Daisies will do the “5 Flowers, 4 Stories, 3 Cheers for Animals” Journey. The cost is $7 per girl (included fun patch, but not the Journey Patch). If the leaders want a fun patch, they cost $2 a piece. The event is on Saturday, November 5, 2016 from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. We ask that parents just drop off or find something quiet to do so the Junior/Cadette leaders will not be nervous. Each troop must have at least one leader stay with them. We will not serve lunch, but we will be serving snack. Please email troop62215@gmail.com for more info. Space is limited so RSVP soon. Last day to RSVP is 10/24/2016.
