Cadettes: Earn your “Finding Common Ground” badge at the Colorado Capitol

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!

Included in our day activities will be a private historical tour of the beautiful Colorado State Capitol. Cost for Cadette attendance is $6 and includes patch, and the limited space for adult chaperones is free.  Register at http://www.girlscoutsofcolorado.org/en/events-repository/2018/cadette_day_at_the_c.html.

Questions? Contact GSCO Girl Experience Manager Emily Speck at emily.speck@gscolorado.org or 303-607-4811.

Girl Scout Exploration Day: Household Elf

Submitted by Melissa Gula

Denver

How can Girl Scout Brownies help save the environment? Join us at Denver Botanic Gardens on April 28, 2018 for our Household Elf Girl Scout Exploration Day to find out! Through scavenger hunts, crafts, and hands-on activities, Girl Scouts will learn ways to save energy, conserve water, and reduce waste.

Brownies explore plants in the Gardens that have adapted to conserve water in dry climates and meet friendly worms that help compost waste. As a Household Elf, Girl Scouts will construct an energy-saving house, craft their own reusable shopping bags, and pot an air-purifying house plant to take home!

Girl Scout Exploration Days offer Girl Scout troops the opportunity to explore plant-based themes through a variety of hands-on activities and take-home projects. Stations are set up throughout the Gardens for groups to explore. Pack a picnic and make a day of it!

To accommodate a larger number of Girl Scouts and improve your group’s experience we are offering two admission times: 9:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. Activity stations will be available to your group from the admission time you choose until 2:30 p.m.

This program is designed for Girl Scout Brownies. Admission is $12 per girl, which includes admission to the whole Gardens for the day. One adult (troop leader or parent) for every five girls is admitted free of charge. Additional adults and non-participating siblings (those not participating in the take-home activities) receive a reduced admission of $7 each. Siblings who wish to participate in take-home activities should register as girls. For admission times, more details and to sign up, please visit: http://catalog.botanicgardens.org/DateSelection.aspx?item=2607
