On November 3, 2018, 32 Brownies from seven different troops took the marvelous “Journey Through Wonderland,” hosted by Troop 70700 of Berthoud. The Cadettes designed, organized, and led this “Journey in a Day,” with whimsical activities based on Lewis Carroll’s original story.
The Brownies earned their “World of Girls” Journey by telling their own stories, practicing teamwork, getting creative, and making healthy choices.
They topped off the day by creating Kindness Cards to distribute in their own communities as a Take Action project. Imagining what would happen if the Queen of Hearts sent her card soldiers to spread kindness, each Brownie will share their Kindness Cards in their own communities.
While the Brownies said they loved all the activities of the day, the favorites were definitely the Mad Hatter Hat Station and Caterpillar teamwork challenge.
Each station was designed and led by Cadettes, who worked through the challenges of planning the event and gained confidence in their own leadership abilities.
Troop 70700 is hosting “Journey Through Wonderland” again in December (already sold out), and is planning additional sessions for 2019. To be placed on an interest list for upcoming sessions, please email Troop 70700 leader Jen Rotar at firstname.lastname@example.org.
