Happy Birthday Our Chalet: Activities for Wednesday, July 29, 2020

Submitted by the GSCO Global Action Committee

On Friday, July 31, Our Chalet celebrates its 88th Birthday! Girl Scouts of Colorado sends their best wishes to Our Chalet, one of the five World Centres of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts.  This is going to be an exciting and fun week with five days of celebration for this birthday! Do you like it when your birthday celebrations spread out over more than one day? If so, watch the GSCO Blog each day so you can celebrate with girls from all around the world.

Let’s learn a bit about the languages of Switzerland. There are actually four major languages for the country, but we will look at only three of them. (French, German, Italian)

Make a craft – Our Chalet Friendship Necklace

It is always fun to have a new Girl Scout necklace! When you wear this one, you will remember your fun visit to Our Chalet and celebrating its birthday!

We want to hear how your girl is using her Girl Scout skills by taking initiative, caring for the community, and Girl Scouting at home. She can send in her story here.
