Steamboat Springs Cadette Troop 54538 recently celebrated earning their Bronze Award (as fifth-graders) with a Denver weekend of theater and fine dining! The girls loved the touring Broadway musical “School of Rock,” especially with all the children in the cast. They also enjoyed a behind-the-scenes tour of DCPA and capped off the weekend with the famed Brown Palace brunch. Thanks so much to the Lufkin Family for helping fund all the fun!
On Friday June 15, 2018, we will have our fun and engaging Girl Scout Cadette Day at the Colorado Capitol! 75 girls will get the chance to spend the day at our beautiful State Capitol in Denver completing the requirements for the “Finding Common Ground” badge. This badge will provide learning opportunities for girls to acquire skills that can help bring people with different beliefs together to make decisions about our world.
Girls will rotate through activities that explore civic debate, learn the art of compromise, and practice skills in mediation. Each of these skills will give them a broader understanding of the process on how decisions are made in a democracy. These are also great skills to mention on those future job, scholarship, or school resumes!

We are the Cadettes of Troop 2732 and for our Silver Award, we educated fellow Girl Scouts about self-awareness and defense. We taught a seminar at Tiger Rock Martial Arts of Lone Tree under the guidance of Fifth Degree Black Belt Clint Asay. Leading up to the event, we spent many hours planning, researching, and training. Our hard work paid off with an amazing event on December 9, 2017. We also have a YouTube channel called “We Are Fierce GS” where people can go to watch our videos for many years to come. Check us out at: https://m.youtube.com/channel/UCrHyKphCBUSE32BCAbx2rxQ. Also, check out our VLOG on our YouTube Channel where we tell you more about what we learned while completing our project.
Troop 59 learned a lot from the “aMAZE” Journey. We learned a lot about friendship, anti-bullying, self-confidence, cliques, stereotypes, and overall social well-being. Over the winter, we took the “aMAZE” Journey a step further. Some of the girls in Troop 59 wrote on sidewalks or left notes around school, to encourage people to be kind and happy. Other girls gave flowers to students to put a smile on their face or passed out blue bows to wear in support of local law enforcement. The project made a positive impact across our community. We did this to educate ourselves on friendship, make a difference, and prepare for the future.
To conclude, we learned a lot and helped our community in a fun way. It was an interesting experience.
Troop 3572 of Broomfield hosted a scouts only event on Sunday, Oct. 29 at CU Boulder’s Fiske Planetarium. With the help of Claire, the presenter, and Spencer, the pilot, girls were shown a number of constellations and nebulae, went flying by the International Space Station, learned how to find the North Star, and floated in Saturn’s rings. The planetarium was almost full with 195 scouts and family members present. The ooohs, aaahhhs, and general excitement about space made for an exhilarating afternoon. The visit to the planetarium fulfills some of the requirements for badges for Cadettes and Seniors. Great job, girls!

It was an awesome weekend for Girl Scout Cadettes in Troop 4636! The girls escaped to the trees in gorgeous Hartsel, Colorado where they learned all about the BREATHE journey and loving our planet. Our Cadettes had an amazing time!
The girls from Troop 73392 are learning to conduct and lead kayak and paddleboard workshops for Girl Scout Cadettes and older.
The girls have learned about different types of paddle boards and kayaks and some of the pros and cons of each type. Now, they are putting their knowledge into action by teaching others the skills necessary to enjoy this fun sport.
In June, the girls hosted their first workshop with a group of leaders and Girl Scout staff. They look forward to hosting their fellow Girl Scout Cadettes later this month.
