Updates for February

Outdoor Challenge

There is still time to complete the State College Girl Scouts Winter Outdoor Challenge! After you complete your check list, talk to your Troop Leader about ordering patches and/or rockers.

We love to see photos of our G.I.R.L.s in action. If you have photos you want to share with the service unit, please email thismonth@statecollegegirlscouts.org.

If you have an idea for a outdoor challenge checklist or a patch design, let us know. If we use your patch design, your troop will get a $25 gift card to the Girl Scout Shop.

Spring Daisy Day and Camporee Updates

We will be hosting a Spring Daisy Outdoor Fun day at Bald Eagle State Park on June 5th. Our Daisies will learn outdoor skills and Girl Scout traditions and have a fun time exploring Bald Eagle State Park.

We are in the process of exploring organizing similar day events at the state parks for the other levels and would love to hear from you. If you have thoughts on camporees in 2021 or are interested in helping, please contact the camp committee.

Welcome to a New Year

I want to welcome our new GSHPA Council Volunteer Support Coordinator Rebecca Spencer. She has emailed out to the leaders introducing herself so if you are a leader but have not heard from her please use the contact link below and we’ll make sure to get you in touch. Rebecca is planning on being at our next Service Unit Meeting on Jan 17, 2021 at 6:30. A Zoom link will be sent out separately to all leaders and Juliette Parents.
