Free Being Me workshop

Submitted by Carrie Harding

Parker

Hosted by Girl Scout Troop 1068, Free Being Me is a partnership with Dove that focuses on body image and self confidence. It teaches girls, ages 7-10, to love and accept themselves for who they are. There are many fun and interactive activities for the girls in order to help them gain confidence and love themselves. Girls will also learn that there is not just one way to beautiful, as we see in the media, but many ways that make the world diverse with beauty. Girls will receive a fun patch after they complete all steps of the session. We will also provide a light snack during the event.

Submitted by Rebecca Lankford

Broomfield

Troop 63572 of Broomfield is hosting two day camps this summer.

Skills and Thrills June 25 – 29, 2018 at East Interlocken Park in Broomfield and She’s Too Crafty July 30 – August 3 at Arvada United Methodist Church in Arvada. The cost per girl is $175. Adult volunteers are needed to help the camps be successful and you can be reimbursed for two girl fees if you volunteer for either week.

Skills and Thrills is planned to teach girls camping skills and help them gain confidence in the outdoors. Our troop has participated in Reach for the Peak and gone on many camping trips and we would love for more troops in our area to get outdoors!

She’s Too Crafty will include a variety of crafting fun plus visits to the Arvada Center and Majestic View Nature Center. This is a new location for this camp and we are excited about all of the opportunities the campers will have nearby. Since this camp takes place late in the summer much of it will be indoors, but girls will be outside every day.

Save the date: Royal Gorge Bridging

 

 

 

 

 

Save the date for GSCO’s statewide Girl Scout Bridging at the Royal Gorge Bridge on May 19, 2018! The bridge, located outside of Canyon City, is one of the most majestic backdrops for a Girl Scout Bridging with it’s breathtaking scenery. Last year, we had more than 300 Girl Scouts, friends, and family cross the bridge during the ceremony and enjoy a cupcake reception afterwards.

Admission to the park for the bridging ceremony is good for the day, so many Girl Scouts and troops plan extra time to enjoy the bridge and the different attractions onsite. The bridge has a lot of picnic tables and different hiking trails available for use as well as food onsite. There’s also several campsites close by.

Information about this year’s ceremony and reception is coming soon. To be notified when bridging registration opens, please contact GSCO Community Partnerships Manager Lori Thompson at lori.thompson@gscolorado.org. For more information about the Royal Gorge Bridge, please go to http://royalgorgebridge.com.
