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”

Breathe!

Cadettes, come join us for a Breathe! Journey Weekend on 10/27/2017 - 10/29/2017!

Are you planning to earn your Silver Award but still need to complete a Journey? Join us for the Breathe Journey Weekend. We will explore the Air Around Us in multiple ways including kite flying, baking, aromatherapy, and yoga. We’ll talk about pollution, careers related to air, and how we can work to reduce air/noise/light pollution. The Take Action portion will be included in the weekend so girls who attend will leave with the Journey complete.

The Journey is open to all girls in grades 6-8 who are registered Girl Scouts. Troops need to provide adult leadership to maintain proper ratios. Girls attending without a troop will be assigned to a group for the weekend to ensure proper ratios are in place.

We need adult helpers, especially if you have an “air” related talent. Leaders and parents will be asked to run stations, assist with cooking, supervise girls, and other responsibilities as needed. Please come prepared to be useful. All adults who spend the night must meet all GSHPA guidelines for registration and clearances.

Cost is $45 for girls which includes cost of Legacy rental, Journey supplies and activities, all food, and the Journey Badges (which are $6 each) and $15 for adults (to cover cost of food and Legacy rental).

Please register by September 30th. Rosters and payment due by September 30th.

Questions? Contact Troop 41253.
