October saw our troops getting back into the swing of things for our new Girl Scout Year. We bridged both virtually and by mail, Brownie Troop 41162 earn their Household Elf Badge with some virtual spider plant planting, Juniors from Troop 40170 climbed a literal mountain, and Cadette Troop 40429 hosted a Ghoul Scout Halloween Bash. Read on for details and photos of our amazing State College Girl Scouts!
As Girl Scouts we adapt to whatever life throws at us. We may not be able to get together in person right now, but we know that this will pass and before we know it we will all once more be packing up for camp.
In the meantime, we are introducing Photo Challenges. Our current challenge is “Life” and will run through the month of April. Girls can submit one photo each week the challenge runs.
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
On June 16 a group of 11 Girl Scouts set out from State College on a week long adventure to visit the birth place of our movement – Savannah, Georgia. The girls explored historical monuments, Tybee Island, wildlife centers, and more.
But this adventure did not begin when they left State College. It began over a year ago with planning meetings, interest surveys, and deposits. It was the result of a year of fund raising and the hard work of dedicated leaders and committed girls.
