Camp Updates

Spring Camporee is right around the corner, summer camporee registration is going to start soon, and we have a date and location for fall camporee!

Spring Camporee

We can’t wait for spring camp! We have 128 girls and 21 troops committed to attending what will likely be our biggest spring camp ever. If you are signed up, be on the look out for your camper letter (it will be heading to your inbox ~2 weeks before camp).

We are still looking for facilitators for archery, canoeing, and fishing. If you (or someone you know) can commit to helping us share these wonderful skills with the girls, please let us know.

Summer Camporee

Summer will be here before you know it and registration for Summer Camporee will open on April 1st! Talk to your troop and be ready to take advantage of the early registration period.

If you are interested in helping plan and deliver our badge programming for this camp, please contact the camp committee. This camp will not happen without your help.

We will also need facilitators for archery, canoeing, and fishing at summer camp. Please let us know if you or someone you know can help us out!

Fall Camporee

Mark your calendars for our first Camp Anderson Fall Camporee on Sep 21-23.

2018 Cookie Season – Costumes & Booth Tips

Our service unit has a cookie costume available to borrow.   To reserve the service unit cookie costume, contact Rachel. To reserve the council costumes, contact Susan. Be sure to include the day(s) the costume is needed and your troop number! 

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!

Happy World Thinking Day!

Cadettes and Seniors from troops 41220 and 40218 earned the 2018 Global Action and World Thinking Day awards at a recent meeting. They explored the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals through activities from the WAGGS World Thinking Day 2018 Activity Pack, and collected coins for the Juliette Low World Friendship Fund.  Locally, they are making an IMPACT this year by organizing a supply drive for Pets Come First during the Service Unit’s annual skating party and donating cookies and supplies to Stormbreak girls’ shelter.

State College Girl Scouts Service Unit 416 will celebrate World Thinking Day with a country expo after cookie season, on April 27.
