Girl Scouts Celebrate Faith During Girl Scout Week

Are you curious about other faiths? Do you want to learn more about your own faith and how it connects to your Girl Scout leadership journey? Join your sister Girl Scouts and faith leaders to celebrate your own faith, learn about other faiths, and take steps to earn your My Promise, My Faith pin. The My Promise, My Faith pin invites Girl Scouts in grades 4-12 to experience a faith journey through exploration of the Girl Scout Law and teachings from their faith. You can earn this national pin each year.

An upcoming event series with Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) will feature an interfaith celebration followed by Girl Scouts and faith speakers sharing their views on what makes their faith unique, and what we have in common. This series will also include fun, interactive activities. Try to attend all three sessions.

GSCO Photo Challenge: Brownies away from home

Submitted by Karen Grealy

Parker

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.
