Best Cookie Video contest: Sofia’s cookie video

Submitted by Sofia M.

Mountain Communities


My name is Sofia and I’m a Junior.  This is my fourth year selling cookies. I wanted to make a video for other Girl Scouts so that they can learn some tips for selling cookies. I wanted them to learn about what the Girl Scout Cookies taste like, and I wanted to inspire people with my video so I can accomplish my goal and help other girls to accomplish theirs.

I learned how to use my Google Drive to make the Selling Cookies video. My mom also showed me how to use Quick Time to make a screen video of my Google Slide presentation. I enjoyed making the video.

Troop camp in the mountains: TC04 Gypsum Troop Camp


Girl Scouts of Colorado is partnering with the Boy Scouts Western Council to offer a troop camp at the Spirit of Adventure Ranch (S.O.A.R.) in Gypsum Colorado.

Spend time with your troop in beautiful Gypsum for an adventure of a lifetime. Your troop will spend their time sleeping in teepees and enjoying gourmet camp cuisine. This is an opportunity for you to meet other troops from around the state and create lifetime friendships.

Swimming, canoeing, kayaking, and fishing are great any time of the year, but at troop camp you get to experience these activities like this with your best friends new ones! The S.O.A.R. amenities for water activities include a natural waterfront and a swimming pool. Plan to bring your suit, towel, and sunscreen!

Bubble soccer is a new twist on a classic sport. Participants wear large plastic bubble protectors on the top half of their body, so when people run into one another they bounce off each other.

Rock Climbing, Archery, Outdoor Skills, nature studies, and crafts are just some of the activities we may do at S.O.A.R. As Girl Scouts it a tradition that we do natural science and high adventure activities. A Celebration of 100 Trailblazing Years says, “In addition to introducing girls of that time to a pastime largely enjoyed by boys, camping fostered independence and teamwork, strength and perseverance, a love of nature, and a sense of camaraderie and sisterhood-all qualities embodied by Juliette Low herself.” (Betty Christiansen, 42)    ​
