World Thinking Day Updates and Reminders

Community 416’s 2017 World Thinking Day celebration, scheduled for Friday, April 7, is off to a great start. We have 26 troops committed to attend the event, where we will showcase 21 countries. The initial country selection deadline has passed, but it is not too late to join the fun at this community-wide event! Scouts from all levels will be attending. Please contact Beth Maybee to find out how your troop can be involved or register today.

All participants need to register before March 15 – if attending as a troop, please have the troop leader complete the registration. The cost for each scout attending is $5; troops may send a payment to Megan Gregor by April 1 or bring to the event.

Cookie Costumes and Booth Tips

The community has a cookie costume available to borrow. If your troop would like to use it for their booth, please contact Rachel Griel using the form below. You can also get costumes from GSHPA – for details, see https://gsheartpa.wufoo.com/forms/girl-scout-cookie-costume-form/

If you are unsure how many cookies you should take to a booth, a good place to start is reviewing last year’s Cookie Booth Sales Data and getting a suggested inventory from the booth predictor. After your booth, be sure to submit your booth data so we can learn from your experience. The more troops that contribute, the more accurate our booth sales predictions will be!

Early Registration Closing March 3rd

Early registration for Spring Camporee and Daisy Day will close on March 3rd. If you want to take advantage of the reduced rate, be sure to sign up, submit your roster, and put your check in the mail! Payment for early registration needs to be received (not in the mail) by March 10th to secure the reduced rate. Failure to submit payment will result in your early registration being converted to a regular registration. Please email camp@statecollegegirlscouts.org with any questions.

The early registration deadline for Summer Camporee has been extended to March 31st.

We are looking for the early registration payments in order to make sure the camp rental fees get paid on time.

Spring and Summer Camporee Updates

Early registration for Spring Camporee and Daisy Day and Summer Camporee and Daisy Day will begin Feb 3rd at a reduced rate! Regular registration will run from March 4th until April 3rd for spring, and May 12th for summer, or until camp is full.

We’ve received confirmation from GSHPA that GoDough CAN be used for our camporees. They’re still working out details, but anyone wishing to use GoDough for Community events (such as camporees) should contact Customer Care and let them know how much to apply to which event for a girl. It’s unlikely that GoDough from this year’s cookie sale will be available in time for our spring and summer camporees, but GoDough from this year’s fall product and both of last year’s sales could apply.

Keep reading for important updates on camp logistics, volunteer needs, rosters, and the registration process.
