GSHPA Mission Moments

There’s No Party Like A Girl Scout Party!

  • York-based abSketches, a visual marketing company, created a workshop aimed at getting young girls between 8 and 10 years of age interested in architecture and design
  • Bring a friend, make new ones, and either build a robot or get wild on the dance floor with Girl Scouts! Parents & Caregivers, you’re invited too! We’re throwing virtual parties that will be an opportunity to chat with our staff and ask any questions you may have about Girl Scouting. These events are designed for girls in grades K – 3, and intended to give non-members a chance to experience the fun and excitement of Girl Scouts! Members are encouraged to invite a friend to join in on the fun! RSVP today.

200 Girl Scouts Ready for Career Exploration

  • Girl Scout Juliette Mariska of Luzerne County honored service men and women—fallen, active, and veteran—by laying wreaths in partnership with Wreaths Across America at the Sunnyside Cemetery in Tunkhannock, Pa.
  • 200 girls joined us for a 3-day virtual badge workshop August 10th-12th. We completed all five steps of the badge throughout three meetings, and girls were able to earn the STEM Career Exploration badge for Brownie, Junior, and Cadette levels! The STEM Career Exploration badge allows Girl Scouts to dig into their interests and consider how they become careers in the future. Earn more badges online.

Outdoor Experiences

  • GSHPA launched a successful virtual Introduction to Backpacking program this summer in two sold-out sessions! Thanks to volunteers Connie and Addie, we now have a cohort of girls and adults ready to move on to a Level 1 backpacking course! Participants learned about everything from Leave No Trace, to campsite selection, to what to pack in your backpack! Learn more about backpacking.
