Cookie Booth Sales Predictor

Troop Leaders and Troop Cookie Liaison, when you go to place your initial order, do you know how many cookies and what variety you need for your booths? Do booths at Lowe’s do better or worse than Walmart? Do the people at Texas Roadhouse like Toffee Tastics? Do cookie costumes ACTUALLY boost sales?

Check out the State College Girl Scouts Cookie Predictor for answers to these questions and more.

We currently have sales data for 165 booths representing 569 hours of cookie sales and 21,004 boxes of cookies and use statistical analysis to determine what the expected outcome for a future booth is. Once booth season starts, be sure to stop back to provide your data!

Happy New Year from State College Girl Scouts

Hope everyone is ready because 2020 is full of GIRL (Go-Getter, Innovator, Risk Taker, Leader) events. Let us know what amazing things your troop has planned.

Check out all the fun events being added to the calendar at Friends of Golden Pond. Along with Ice Fishing they have added First Aid Badge Workshops for Brownies and Juniors. Attend an activity and see how many things you can check off on your Winter Challenge.

Use your Photography skills and explore the Arboretum this winter and enter a picture in their Winter Photo Contest. While you’re at it work on the Outdoor Art badge for your level. If you are a Junior you can work on your Digital Photographer Badge and Ambassadors can work on their Photographer badge.

In the spirit of Getting Outdoors check out these two fliers to see about Winter Programs at Bald Eagle State Park and their Equipment Loaner Program: Cross-Country Skis & Snowshoes.

Girl Scouts Sharing the Holiday Spirit

State College Girl Scouts were in the holiday spirit this December. Whether they were assisting with Toys for Tots wrapping, Singing at Brookline, assisting at the Elves Workshop, creating ornaments for the Arboretum’s Winter Celebration, or Decorating trees for Festival of Trees

Ice Fishing

Have your scouts ever wanted to try their hand at ice fishing?

Camp Golden Pond is bringing us several opportunities to try out this fun and exciting sport.

On Feb 2nd, the PA Fish and Boat Commission will be coming to Camp Golden Pond for a Youth Intro to Ice Fishing and Cooking Demonstration.

Feb 8th will then be Ice Fishing Day at Camp Golden Pond. The day will start with an adult ice fishing tournament and finish with free youth ice fishing. Groups are further invited to spend the weekend tent camping.

So you can focus on enjoying your day, hot meals and coffee will be available for purchase all day.
