GSCO Photo Challenge: Brownies away from home

Submitted by Karen Grealy

In 2018, our Girl Scouts attended the Brownie Camporee at Tomahawk Ranch. They were between 7 and 8-years-old, and for nearly all the girls, it was their first time away from home. Not only did they earn their “Girl Scout Way” and “Potter” badges, they also completed the “Wonders of Water” Journey by assisting with planting a garden at Tomahawk. They had a wonderful time!

These Girl Scouts were risk-takers by leaving their parents for two nights. It was hard for some of them, but they ended-up having so much fun. They will be spending their 2019 cookie proceeds on camp again this year!

Girl Scouts of Colorado is hosting a photo challenge! Just submit your favorite Girl Scout photo and the story behind it using the Share Your Stories form (www.gscoblog.org/share). Winners will be featured in future GSCO marketing materials, on GSCO’s social media networks, and on the GSCO Blog.

Girl Scout Week: Be a G.I.R.L. every day

 

 

 

 

From Girl Scouts of the USA

Although we celebrate important moments all year long, Girl Scout Week is a particularly special time! That’s because Girl Scouts across the United States (and even abroad) have the chance to connect with one another, show the world everything they do, and celebrate what it means to have that one-of-a-kind G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ grit.


This year, we’re challenging Girl Scouts everywhere to commit to seven goals and accompanying activities—whether girls have time for them this week or want to take them on in the months to come. After all, being a Girl Scout isn’t just for special occasions!



Sunday, March 11: celebrate inclusivity! Girl Scout Week starts with Girl Scout Sunday. Whether you’re Catholic, Hindu, Buddhist, Jewish, or not religious, take some time today to connect with your beliefs and values and learn about someone else’s. And take a moment to perform an act of kindness—that’s something everyone believes in!




 
 

Monday, March 12: be a go-getter! Kick off the school week by taking action and getting involved civically. Check out these resources and tips from the G.I.R.L. Agenda to feel inspired and prepared to make the world a better place—the possibilities are endless. You may even become motivated to work toward earning the Global Action award while you’re at it.



 
 

Tuesday, March 13: be an innovator! Explore science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).  The different badges you can earn while at it will give you so many reasons to be proud, and the possibilities of STEM are endless—try your hand at robotics, botany, coding, or kitchen chemistry! If you’ve already got stellar STEM skills, reach out to a younger troop to see if you can share what you know.

Wednesday, March 14: be a risk-taker! Think about what makes you uncomfortable and how you can tackle your fears, then take risks by trying something new. Taking part in outdoor adventures with friends or family is the ultimate Girl Scout way. You could even find a way to volunteer with a group at school. Think about what you could accomplish if you joined an after-school environmental club, or better yet, start one. Your Ranger patch awaits!




Thursday, March 15: take the lead! Raise your hand. Stand up against bullying. Seize opportunities to help those in need.  When you’re a leader, you’re confident, responsible, and committed to changing the world.

Friday, March 16: revel in some Friday FUN! Work with your Girl Scout sisters to come up with a new way to celebrate being a Girl Scout. There are so many great Girl Scout traditions and ceremonies you can partake in—you can always come up with fun and meaningful activities on your own.

Saturday, March 17: observe Girl Scout Sabbath!This is the perfect day to reread and contemplate the Girl Scout Promise and Law. Find out more about the My Promise, My Faith pin and start taking steps to earn it, no matter what your beliefs. 



Show us how you’re celebrating all week long by sharing your activities on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram using the hashtag #GirlScoutWeek.

Celebrate your faith like a Girl Scout

From Girl Scouts of the USA

Girl Scouts encourages girls to grow their faith and is based on the Girl Scout Promise and Law, which includes many of the principles and values common to most faiths. Although a secular organization, Girl Scouts has, since the movement began, encouraged girls to explore their spirituality by earning the My Promise, My Faith pin.

Throughout this Journey, girls open up conversations with women in their religious community, research inspiring quotes that resonate with the part of the Girl Scout Law on which they have chosen to focus, and create a work of art to express what they’ve learned with their friends, family, and possibly even the larger community. Girls of all grade levels are eligible once each year to earn the My Promise, My Faith pin. Learn more about how to get started.
