Girl Scout Mission Moments: A Summer To Remember!

Brownie Aims To Earn A Badge From 50 States

  • Girl Scout sets goal to earn a patch from all 50 states
  • Elizabeth from Troop 70255 set an ambitious goal this summer: to earn a badge/patch from every state in the USA! Elizabeth says her love of learning has led her to earn 25 badges so far. She cooked a Native American meal for her New Mexico patch, was interviewed by the CEO of Girl Scout's Rhode Island council, learned Revolutio,nary War American history for Massachusetts, and about female aviation and aerospace pioneers for the Nation's Capital. The initiative and determination Elizabeth has shown this summer proves she's a true G.I.R.L. on the rise!

Girl Scouts Create Summer Book Club

  • Troop 40427 was faced with a dilemma when their current school closed this summer for construction, along with the library, leaving the community without a summer reading program. They took action by setting up a summer book club for families in the community and created and maintained the website. At the end of the book club, the girls hosted a summer picnic where they created themed games and activities. More than 30 famlilies attended the picnic! Inspired by the girls' success, the librarian plans to incorporate the picnic portion of the project into her plans for next year's summer library program.

Girl Scout Summer Destination: Switzerland

  • Girl Scouts travel to the Girl Scout World Center Our Chalet in Switzerland
  • After saving for almost two years, Troop 11967 embarked on an international adventure to Girl Scout World Center Our Chalet in Adelboden, Switzerland! A favorite experience from their trip was visiting Interlaken, a picturesque Swiss town nestled in the Alps. They met people from around the world and other troops from the U.S. and Canada. The girls participated in traditional Girl Scout activities like a flag-and-pinning ceremony, fire building, orienteering, and a campfire singalong. Troop Leader Jennifer says, "For us, this was a once-in-a lifetime experience and one the girls and leaders will never forget!"
