Service Project Opportunity: Thank You Cards for Vets

The State College Girl Scouts will be marching (and riding on a flatbed truck) in the 4th of July Parade.

We would like to pass out thank you cards to veterans. This will be done by older girls. Any leftover cards will be taken to the local VFWs.

Cards should:

  • Have a simple note of thanks that can easily be read
  • Positive and bright drawings
  • No larger than a greeting card
  • Only list first name and troops only (no last names)

Cards can be turned into Michelle Varrassa by June 29th . Contact her at mek154@psu.edu to make arrangements.

Camp Updates

Spring Camporee is right around the corner, summer camporee registration is going to start soon, and we have a date and location for fall camporee!

Spring Camporee

We can’t wait for spring camp! We have 128 girls and 21 troops committed to attending what will likely be our biggest spring camp ever. If you are signed up, be on the look out for your camper letter (it will be heading to your inbox ~2 weeks before camp).

We are still looking for facilitators for archery, canoeing, and fishing. If you (or someone you know) can commit to helping us share these wonderful skills with the girls, please let us know.

Summer Camporee

Summer will be here before you know it and registration for Summer Camporee will open on April 1st! Talk to your troop and be ready to take advantage of the early registration period.

If you are interested in helping plan and deliver our badge programming for this camp, please contact the camp committee. This camp will not happen without your help.

We will also need facilitators for archery, canoeing, and fishing at summer camp. Please let us know if you or someone you know can help us out!

Fall Camporee

Mark your calendars for our first Camp Anderson Fall Camporee on Sep 21-23.

Congratulations Gold Award Recipients

On Feb 18 we had the honor of presenting the Gold Award to three Girl Scouts from Troop 41183. Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. The Gold Award is the highest achievement a Girl Scout can earn and demonstrates the commitment these inspiring young leaders have made towards changing the world for the better.

Congratulations to Nicole Pandolfi, Megan Petrine, and Ann Sepich!
