Service Unit Meeting – Oct 15th

Our next Service Unit meeting will be on Oct 15th at 6PM at the Girl Scout Office. We encourage all troops to send a representative. Susan from council will have volunteer incentives and we will also have the badges from Fall Camporee.

Topics of discussion will include dates for Spring and Summer camporee, the cookie rally, outdoor training, our next service unit hike, and Christmas trees.

Camp Leadership Training

We are establishing an initiative for older girl scouts (8th grade +) to complete a Service Unit level Camp Leadership Training program. Completing the program will allow the girls to plan and facilitate activities at our summer and fall camporees. Girls who are part of this team will be charged the lower adult rate in addition to accumulating service hours. Running camp programs will also provide demonstrable leadership skills that will enhance your college applications and resumes.

Our first CLT event will take place during the Daisy/Brownie Winter Camping Weekend at Camp Golden Pond Jan. 26 – 28. Register by Dec 10 for reduced rate ($10 per girl or adult); final registration deadline is Dec 22 ($15 per girl or adult). We need at least 12 participants in order to cover lodge rental for the weekend. 7th- and 6th- grade cadettes who are mature and experienced campers may participate if accompanied by at least 1 cleared adult per troop.

Please contact us if you are interested in completing the Camp Leadership Training program, would like to help us train our girls, or have any thoughts on the program. Continue reading “Camp Leadership Training”
