Girl Scout Strong for Uvalde
We are devastated to share the news that the mass shooting at Robb Elementary in Uvalde last week resulted in the tragic death of Amerie Jo Garza, one of our Girl Scouts sisters from Girl Scouts of Southwest Texas.  

The Texas council is encouraging Girl Scout troops to create personalized cards for families or friends of the victims, those recovering in the hospital and first responders.
Cards can be mailed to: Sally Cheever Girl Scout Leadership Center, 811 N. Coker Loop, San Antonio, TX 78216

Girl Scouts of Southwest Texas also has a list of additional ways to help and resources for girls on their website. ​

Girl Scout QuestFest 2022
Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia is hosting it’s final QuestFest® this year, July 14-17, both virtually and in-person in Savannah, Georgia.

Open to all Girl Scouts across the country, QuestFest® is a giant scavenger hunt with a twist! You’re not looking for items or things — instead you and your team are in search of experiences called Quests. Think STEM, summer fun, and Girl Scout-themed activities and challenges to earn points for your team! These Quests are designed with Girl Scout values in mind, so while you’re having fun, you’ll also be making the world a better place. 

Learn more about this fun event here. Registration is open through June 10.
