|Good Turn for Goodwill Runs Through October |
Every October, GSCP2P partners with Goodwill Industries in the Good Turn for Goodwill service project. Girl Scouts are encouraged to collect bags of gently used clothing, electronics and household items and donate them to their local Goodwill drop-off location. Girls receive a patch for participating. To find all the details, including the 2020 packet, please click here.
It’s Time to Come Out to Camp!
Great news! Our camps are opening for a limited number of troops to visit us for one day during the weekend and earn a badge as a troop. Each troop will be assigned their own unit where they will base their day’s fun and the troop leader will receive all instructions and supplies to earn the badge. You are also welcome to hike around camp while completing the badge. If life is chaotic right now, we can also provide a bagged lunch, snack and/or s’mores for your troop. For Girl Scout Juniors and older, you can also go ahead and add on a one-hour, facilitated archery session! Full details, including pricing, can be found at www.CampLikeAGirl.org.
Not ready to come in person yet? No problem! Spend some time with us on the weekends with one of our awesome virtual programs! Programs will be offered for girls of all ages with a wide variety of activities- from crafts to baking to science experiments and fun games. Descriptions of programs and registration information can be found here. Some events will also include a box of supplies sent directly to your home with everything you will need. If supplies are not provided, you will receive a supply list prior to the event.
We also have super exciting, brand new Adventure Awaits boxes coming soon! These boxes are fun ways to complement your Girl Scout journey, both for girls and adults, that will be delivered to your door monthly! You can save by subscribing to three, six or 12 months of boxes! So, what adventures are awaiting you? Find information on these boxes at www.CampLikeAGirl.org.
