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.

Volunteer Appreciation and Spring Events

April 22nd is Girl Scout Leaders Day. Take a look at the Volunteer Appreciation page on girlscouts.org for more information.

Thank you to all of our wonderful Troop Leaders and Volunteers who help support Girl Scout’s Mission of building GIRLs (Go-Getters, Innovators, Risk-Takers, Leaders) of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. The girls could not do all they do without your assistance, caring, and energy. From attending activities to planning badges and journeys. From the littlest Daisies learning the Girl Scout Promise and Law to the older girl earning their Bronze, Silver, and/or Gold. You are the heart of this Service Unit. You make it possible for them to succeed.

As the Service Unit Lead I have to offer a personal Thank You to the Volunteers who have been planning so many amazing events for the Service Unit this year. Please take a look at all the programming and activities they have scheduled for this spring. Daisies check out Daisy Day during Spring Camporee and Daisy Day at Black Moshannon and the Daisy Scouts Mini Golf Event, Brownies think about working on your Hiker Badge during the All Ages Hike – Fasick Park Nature Trail, Juniors there is still space to work on your Jeweler Badge at Junior Jewelry Making @ The Makery, Cadettes check out the Cadette Trees Badge Workshop. Last but not least come out to the PSU Lacrosse and/or PSU Softball games to spend some time with your Girl Scout sisters cheering on the amazing girls on those teams. We are adding more each week and beginning to look at programming for the Summer and Fall so please contact us with your ideas for great events we can plan together in the future and keep an eye on our events page.
