Just because school is out, doesn’t mean that Girl Scouts must go on break! Summer is a great time to spend more time with your Girl Scout sisters. For summer 2019, Girl Scouts of Colorado has a NEW patch program to encourage you to participate in Girl Scouts over the summer. Troops can earn the patch between June 1 – August 31. Here are the requirements:
- Girls must be renewed for the upcoming membership year (2019-2020)
- Participate in two summertime activities as a troop
- Complete one service project
- Plan to start regular meetings before October 31
Sounds pretty fun right?! We think so! Once you complete the requirements, you can purchase your patch in-person or over the phone from the GSCO Shop in Denver. We would also love to hear about the service project that your troop completes. Use the Share Your Stories form on here to let us know how your girls have left a positive impact on their community.

To celebrate Women’s History Month, my mom took me to CSU in Ft. Collins and I met my cousin Raechel. We all walked to the library on campus and checked out the exhibit on display about Colorado women who have been inducted into the Hall of Fame. It was really interesting. My favorite was learning about Susan Helms. How amazing to be a part of so many firsts for women! She attended the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, where I’m from.
The Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame is excited to partner with Girl Scouts of Colorado to provide girls across the state an opportunity to learn the stories of women who have shaped our state and the nation’s history with courage, leadership, intelligence, and creativity. Girl Scouts are future female leaders of Colorado and the Hall of Fame recognizes and preserves the accomplishments of past and present Colorado women. – M.L. Hanson, Founder of the Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame
The GSCO Program Team is excited about the upcoming National Girl Scout Cookie Day on Feb. 8th, and we’ve created a National Girl Scout Cookie Day Patch Program that all girls are encouraged to participate in to get involved in this exciting day! The focus of this patch program is on the five skills girls learn from selling Girl Scout Cookies (goal-setting, decision-making, money management, people skills and business ethics). It also encourages selling activities on Friday, Feb. 8th, since there will be a lot of talk around the nation about Girl Scout Cookie time. If a girl participates, she can purchase the patch featured above in one of our council shops.
Best wishes for an exciting 2013 Girl Scout Cookie Program!
