Troop 70720 ran a “Three Cheers for Animals” Journey in a Day event for Daisies at the McKee 4H Ranch Building in Loveland. 27 Girl Scouts Daisies from around the state joined them. The girls had a guest speaker from Animal Friends Alliance, made lots of projects, and did activities! For the ending project, they did a Take Action project of making winter feral cat boxes for a local animal rescue! They will distribute the boxes out to areas that have homeless/feral cats which can use them.

Troop 70720 hosted a Daisy Journey in a Day event! They had 21 Daisies at their event and six girls from Troop 70720, who were running the event. They had Dr. Agone from Animal House speak to the Daisies about animal care. The girls had several stations and small talks prepared about animals and animal care as well. Their big finale was painting feral cat boxes for Fort Collins Spay and Neuter Clinic. The older girls had prepped them and put them together and all the Daisies got to enjoy decorating and painting them. Troop 70720 delivered the cat boxes to the cat rescue. There will be some happy and warm homeless kitties this winter.

Submitted by Marcia Roe

Northern & Northeastern CO

Meadow Mountain Ranch

Program Level: Junior

When: Saturday, April 6 or Sunday, April 7, 2019

Cost: $30 per Girl Scout Junior / $10 per Safety Wise Adult

Registration Deadline: March 23

This event is a super fun way to earn your “Agent Of Change” Journey in a day! We will be doing the three parts of the Journey: The Power of One, The Power of Team, and the Power of Community. The girls will work in small groups, ultimately leading them with the tools to complete their Take Action project in their own communities. There will be team building, games, archery, and challenges built into the day. The day will not include receiving the physical badges for the Journey, as Girl Scouts will have one piece to complete on their own. Lunch is included, but if you have very specific food needs, we ask that you bring your own and talk to us about those needs so we are aware.

The whole day is hero-themed. The girls end the event making a thank you pack for a real hero in their community, police, nurse, teacher, etc. to bring what they have learned back to their neighborhoods and thank someone who is a hero in their life.

Questions? Email Marcia at ocmc1359@gmail.com.

This program was designed by a team of Cadettes for their Silver Award and this is the third set of weekends that they have led younger Girl Scouts in how to grow in the Power of One, Team, and Community.

My Personal Journey in Girl Scouting/Journey in a Day

Submitted by Regina Flores-Dunda

My how we have all grown up!

As you can see from my own 3rd grade photo, Brownie beanies were hip in the 80s. Seriously, though, I have so many fond memories of being a Brownie and a Junior as a kid–camping at Sky High Ranch, overnights at Garden of the Gods, staying up all night to learn about people who work the graveyard shift, learning basic first aid, selling cookies (of course!), and making friends. Most of all, I learned that girls can do anything. My leaders instilled in me a sense that no task is too great if you prepare and work hard. These leadership skills played a role in helping me reach my goals of becoming the first Hispanic to represent Colorado at the Miss America Pageant (’97) and eventually starting my own business, Sol-Via Modern Arts (’09).

Fast forward to present day where I now find myself the proud mother of two Girl Scouts and a co-leader to a super duper bunch of 3rd grade Brownies. As a parent, an educator, business owner, and a leader, I am so impressed with how much Girl Scouts curricula has evolved in the 21st century. What a great time to be a Girl Scout!

Among my favorite of the new learning experiences are the leadership journeys. Through hands-on activities, they help girls to identify and discover the strengths and skills they already posses to be successful leaders at home, at school, and in their community.

It’s been one year since my company began hosting the “Journey in a Day-the Creative Way” event for Girl Scouts in Colorado. Through this one-day workshop, girls can earn their journey award by participating in arts-centered activities. By the end of February, we will have helped nearly 1,000 girls earn their “It’s Your Story, Tell It” journey award or become a Leader in Action!

Something special happened at my November event–a sort of serendipity. One of the mothers turned out to be an old friend from my 3rd grade Brownie troop! It reminded me of how my journey as a Girl Scout has come full circle and how lucky I am to be a part of GSCO!

I sure hope your troop can join us for one of our Journey in a Day events!

Please see the activity finder for information about our March 12th and April 9th events.
