She's ready to come back!
Things are starting to get back to normal in the world, and we are
looking forward to a happy healthy 2021-2022 Girl Scout year, full
of everything that makes Girl Scouts special!
Girl Scouts is where she can discover her own unique strengths, explore new interests, and gain the confidence she’ll need to let her gifts shine. She’ll continue to grow, learning that no matter what challenges she faces, she can keep herself centered with the support of her fellow Girl Scouts.
Whether your Girl Scout wants to be an artist or an astronaut, she can make the world a better place. And she’s ready to get going.
Press play with Girl Scouts and watch her confidence soar – on-time renewal starts today!
GSHPA Mission Moments
Treat People with Kindness
Troop 50605 of Covington Township made a Kindness Mailbox which was placed at North Pocono Intermediate School in Moscow, PA. The purpose of the mailbox is to encourage a culture of kindness by performing simple but meaningful acts geared toward building a connection to and uplifting one another. Children can drop by the mailbox and pick up a suggested act of kindness to perform and can even write their own.
A Successful Cookie Season
We are forever grateful to all of those who helped make the 2021 Cookie Season a success. Although we faced many challenges, our members met those challenges and in many ways exceeded our 2021 goals!
GSHPA President & CEO, Janet Donovan, gives her take on the 2021 Cookie Season and you can read about it now.
Kitties and Cookies
Troop 50070 from Clarks Summit, PA collected 250 boxes of Girl Scout Cookies and made 47 cat scratchers from the cookie cases to donate to Griffin Pond Animal Shelter. The girls suggested a few boxes of cookies be given to new Fur-Parents when they adopt a new pet.
Teaching the Next Generation Girl Scouts
Senior Troop 70569 partnered with Brownie Troop 71308 to teach them camping skills and to help them earn their Eco Friend badge at French Creek State Park. The Brownies were taught how to set up tents, campfire safety, as well as how to light and cook over a campfire. The Brownies learned the seven principles of Leave No Trace and practiced the principles on a nature hike.
