Teddy Bear Rescue Party – Virtual Fort Collins

Hey,  Future Girl Scouts! Attend our Teddy Bear Rescue, where girls will learn how to identify and prepare for an emergency and how to apply first aid to a minor cut or scrape.

We will also talk about preparing for activities so we can stay safe. Girls in Kindergarten through 3rd grade are welcome to attend. Bring your favorite stuffed animal or doll.

Note: this event is for girls who are NEW to Girl Scouting! If you are a current Girl Scout, you are welcome to attend if you invite a friend who is not in Girl Scouts yet – but totally should be!

RSVP to Devon Wilson to receive the Zoom link and password! 

Once you register, we will send you a Zoom link to join as well as any materials your girl will need. This event is meant to introduce upcoming Girl Scouts to the challenging and skill-building activities that they can enjoy in Girl Scouts!

Contact Devon Wilson at (970) 212-2355 or devon.wilson@gscolorado.org if you have questions or want to get started with Girl Scouts today.

Troop 72886 shared 251 packages of Girl Scout Cookies with their Hometown Heroes, staff and volunteers at local shelters. Guadalupe Center in Greeley, Fort Collins Rescue Mission, and The Mission (also Fort Collins) all have dedicated staff and volunteers who continued selflessly providing essential care during COVID-19, and our troop was grateful for the chance to thank and honor them!

Madeline and Ellie from Troop 77002 delivered the troop’s Hometown Hero Girl Scout Cookies to Larimer County Foster Services on May 17, 2021. The troop selected foster care children and their families to receive donated cookies this year to brighten their days. Their troop crest is the sun and they have really embraced it this year!

The troop also set aside some cookies for the staff at Collinwood Assisted Living. Girl Scouts will deliver these cookies soon along with more than a hundred homemade cards and individually wrapped Eileen’s Cookies for the residents.

Girl Scouts from Fort Collins tried SCUBA diving with Oceans First in Boulder! The girls had a blast. It is wonderful watching the new things girls can try and do because of Girl Scouts.

Troop 71106: Silver Ticket Winner

The winning ticket was in the last case that I picked up from the cupboard to help fill our Hometown Hero donations. I opened every one and did have a moment of feeling like Charlie Bucket when I saw it.

We had a troop meeting and were discussing money earning to get a storage space for all of our equipment, so this is a nice little boost for the troop in that direction!

Troop Goal: It was 14,000 packages, but the girls are over 22,000!

Troop 720 had a Galentine’s Day celebration at Urban Air this year! They had a great time playing on the tramps, climbing wall, zip-lines, and hanging out with each other. What is better than the gift of friendship with your Girl Scout sisters?!?

Troop 70720 Tries SCUBA Diving

Some of the girls from Troop 70720 got to try SCUBA diving! The company running the program has to limit class sizes right now to six participants due to COVID, so other girls will get their chance in the next month. The first part of our “try-it” experience was in-person class instruction followed by 90 minutes in the pool with everyone finishing up in the deep end– 13 feet down! It was a super fun experience! SCUBA diving is something none of the girls had tried before and so far, everyone gave it an A+++

Both of these events are run by Girl Scouts in high school. They did them in person in 2019 – 2020 and for 2020 – 2021, it is on Zoom. They have done one Zoom event so far with good feedback. And, they are ready to run their last two events of this school year!

Daisy Keira and Junior Cecilia had the best time checking activities off their Winter Get Outdoors Challenge checklist during a recent snowy day. These Girl Scouts helped shovel snow not only on their own driveway, but also neighbors’ sidewalks. They also made snow angels and had a snowball fight. Their favorite activity was sledding together. They can’t wait to complete some more of the fun activities on the checklist!
