We went to Barr Lake State Park to celebrate Girl Scouts Love State Parks Weekend. The girls did rock climbing and had a wonderful time. For one of the girls, it was her first time rock climbing. All of them were brave. We had never been to Barr Lake State Park. Now, we are planning to return to explore and learn more.

Inspiring others through community service

Submitted by Kristen Chipman

Northglenn/Thornton

Some of the Girl Scouts of Troop 66742 were doing their share of community service by helping plant the flowerbed in front of the Northglenn Recreation Center! For the last several years, the girls have committed to caring for this flowerbed every summer. This year, they planted Marigolds and Red Petunias in honor of the City of Northglenn’s 50th Anniversary!

Troop 66742 loves to give back to the community. Whether it be through helping take care of a flowerbed or donating to a local church, these girls are always doing amazing things! They are leading by example on how to take small steps to make a big impact in this world!

At the World Thinking Day event, each registered troop will host a booth with a presentation about their selected country to share with other troops. Troops may also share food, SWAPS, songs, art, etc. from their chosen region.

Girls will be treated to a very special guest during our halfway point break between tours. Deepali Lindbloom, a professional Bollywood and Bhangra dancer, will perform and speak about empathy and community. The girls will then get a chance to join her on the dance floor!

G.I.R.L. Stories: Rocking Girl Scout Cookies

Submitted by Destaniy B.

Metro Denver

Thornton

I have been a Girl Scout for four years. I started Girl Scouts because it sounded fun and I thought I could make the world a better place.

The first year of Girl Scouts I was so excited that I had my mom sign up to be the cookie mom. That year I worked many booths, door-to-door, and sold 1,396 packages of cookies. This is where I learned that the more work and heart I put into my cookie business, the better I would do. The next two years I worked harder to pass my goal and get more customers. I found that if I advertised I would get more customers that enjoy Girl Scout Cookies and would support me. Last year was my best year yet, I sold 3,055 packages and was the 11th top seller in the state of Colorado. I was able to earn lots of Cookie Credits to go to Girl Scout Zippers camp.

I love Girl Scouts because I feel that it is very important to the world. I have learned how to make new friends, life skills, camp on my own, and most importantly, help other people. Our troop does lots of give back projects such as: valentines for Children’s Hospital, Wreaths Across America, cards to the military, Thanksgiving meal for someone in need, picked up trash on the street, volunteered at a Precious Child and Giving Tree, donated to CASA for kids in trouble, visited the elderly, and helped in my community and school. This is one of my favorite things to do, because I can get my family to help out too and we can all make the world a better place in many ways.
