Calling all GIRL Award Earners

Has your troop completed an award (Bronze, Silver, or Gold) or done a really rockin Take Action Project this Girl Scout Year? We want to hear about it. Have your leader contact us and we will help them post a Troop Spotlight.

Bronze, Silver, and Gold write ups are as simple as sending us the application you sent GSHPA and some photos!

Summer Camporee at Camp Golden Pond

Our annual Summer Camporee will be back at Camp Golden Pond! Early registration is currently open and will run until May 20th.

If you would like to preview the camp, Friends of Golden Pond is holding a open house on May 11th and would love to see you. The camp is currently funded into September and is working on raising a down payment to fund the purchase of the camp. Troops looking for service projects are welcome to review their list of needs or submit your own idea.

Summer at the Butterfly Garden

Are you looking for a take action project for your troop this summer? Or do you just like to garden? Or maybe your daughter likes to play with plants and you have a black thumb…

State College Girl Scouts maintains a plot in the Snetsinger Butterfly Garden in Tudek Park. This plot provides a space for girls (and adults) to try their hand at gardening under the helpful guidance of PSU Master Gardeners. By the end of the summer girls are able to tell the difference between mint, milkweed, beebalm, crown vetch, and more.

On April 14, Brownies from Troop 40170 started all the annual seeds at the butterfly garden greenhouse. As the weather improves, we will be announcing planting dates and building a maintenance schedule.

Any troops interested in participating in the spring planting should contact Troop 40170.

Memorial Day 2019

Memorial Weekend is a time for us to support our community and show our love for those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. As Girl Scouts, we have a special role in the festivities.

First, we are invited to march in the annual Boalsburg Fire Company parade on Saturday, May 25th. Last year we won 3rd place for marching groups and we are confident that we can place again this year! Girls of all level are encouraged to attend and earn a parade fun patch. We will need older girls to carry the flags.

Second, it is our duty to lead the annual Walk to the Graves on Monday, May 27th. In this ceremony, we will place flowers on the graves of all the soldiers buried in the Boalsburg cemetery.
