Pagosa Springs

Daisy Troop 26237 of Pagosa Springs set a goal to “Bunk with the Beasts” at Denver Zoo with their money earned from the Girl Scout Cookie Program. They did just that in June! The girls made so many memories together from building Girl Scout Thin Mint bears at Build-A-Bear to walking Denver Zoo at night to learn about the different animals and what makes them unique. It was an incredibly memorable experience for all!

Care about the earth? Love art? Here’s an activity for you!

My name is Dawn Moon and I am a graduate student through Miami University and Denver Zoo! Yes, that’s right. I get to go to school at the ZOO! I wouldn’t have ever made it this far had it not been for my 14 years as a Girl Scout! I grew up in Wyoming, where my love of nature was able to flourish and now that I live in Colorado I want to share that passion with girls here!

For my masters, I am pursuing a MAZ (Master of Arts in Zoology) where I am combining my love for conservation and animals with my passion for photography. I have posted an activity on the Activities Board for 11th and 12th grade girls that are interested in working towards their “Photography” badge. If you are interested in learning more about this opportunity or potentially participating please contact me by email at moond@miamioh.edu or by phone at 307-797-4448!

As part of their big event for selling cookies and troop bonding, the girls voted and decided that we would go to the Denver Zoo for a Girl Scout program and overnight! The programs were all filled earlier in the spring so they just got to attend in September.

They spent the night with Girl Scouts from other troops learning about habitat of various animals! We also got to see a fun show put on by staff with animals the next morning.

This was a fun experience and a memory I am sure the girls will always cherish.

A Brownie troop’s year of fun

We had a busy year of fun. Aside from going through the Brownie Trail, we went on two sleepovers: One at the Denver Zoo, and one at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. We sold more cookies than we did last year and donated more, too. We organized a food drive and helped out at the Food Bank at FIRC in Silverthorne.

GSCO at Boo at the Zoo!

A fun time was had by all at the 31st Annual Boo at the Zoo Event held at the Denver Zoo. Girl Scouts of Colorado  held a presence at the Zoo with a ghoulishly decked-out tent near Sheep Mountain! We, of course, had our birthday hats on as well to celebrate Founder’s Day.

Halloween morning started with a chill, but morning light broke through the near-freezing temperatures to awaken zoo animals and reveal a prominent and friendly Billy Goat taking watch over the Girl Scout tent. From the moment the zoo opened until its doors at 9 a.m. to the last little princesses and miniature Batmans waddling out the gates after 9 p.m., GSCO staff and volunteers handed out candy to more than 20,000 people, speaking to parents and girls interested in troop involvement throughout Metro Denver. As the day went on, there was no shortage of smiles and laughing.

The Girl Scouts of Colorado would like to extend a mountain of gratitude to its tent sponsor, King Soopers, for a generous contribution that provided the Girl Scout involvement at Boo at the Zoo. Not only did GSCO get to showcase its mighty “Girl power prowess”—and instill excitement for girl leadership in Denver’s youth, GSCO held the honor of personally connecting with the community to provide Colorado girls with opportunities to build courage, confidence and character!

Thank you to staff members, volunteer, girls, and community partners who helped make this event a success: Denver Zoo, Entercom, and King Soopers. We would not be successful without you!
