Goodbye summer – hello fall programs and events!
Summer may be over, but new Girl Scout adventures are just
beginning! Our girls are once again teaming up for another year of
fun. The fall brings not only a new school year and cooler weather,
but a variety of experiences and opportunities for girls to learn and
grow through Girl Scouting.
Girl Scouts in the Heart of Pennsylvania is offering up lots of ways to get your girl, and you, involved this fall and beyond. Click the links below for more information about:
- Honing her entrepreneurship skills during Fall Product Program.
- Learning about science and technology at STEM in the Outdoors.
- Celebrating her and her friends with Girl Fest at Camp Archbald and Camp Small Valley.
- For our older Girl Scouts, don’t miss the opportunity to learn about Trailblazer Troops during GSHPA’s Trailblazer interest meeting on Oct. 19.
We can’t wait to bring girls together again this fall!
Girl Scouts address mental health
Girl Scouts Abigail and Lacey from Troop 40429 in Centre County focused on student mental health at Park Forest Middle School for their Silver Award project. The girls worked with the school to curate a collection of mental health books for the school library and created a calming room for students in the counseling office.
GSHPA GUIDANCE ON PARTICIPATION IN MARCHES
At Girl Scouts in the Heart of Pennsylvania, we support girls who choose to raise their voices on causes they support. We strive to help each girl tap into her leadership potential and use her voice to build a more just community. We respect the rights of each individual girl and adult member of our Movement to make their own decisions regarding participation in demonstrations, protests or marches in support of causes they care about.
Girls and troops may wear Girl Scout uniforms or t-shirts ONLY if participation is linked to a specific Take Action Project in pursuit of a Girl Scout Journey or Highest Award. This is to ensure individual personal opinions and actions are not interpreted as opinions and actions of our council as a whole. We encourage all members to be mindful of the possibility of violence and require parental permission for any girls or troops that want to participate in demonstrations, protests or marches.
