I had an amazing time attending Girls Scout camp at
Sheely Farms. We learned to make items with shaving
cream, glue and food coloring. We made mermaid tails
out of paper and portraits of ourselves out of cardboard.
I also had the opportunity to meet new people.
Miss Ginnie, Girl Scout Program Specialist, couldn’t
do Girl Scouts as a kid, but thought it would be great
to do it as an adult. Juliet Gordon-Low started Girl
Scouts in 1912. Girl Scouts was made official on March
12, 1912, making it 106 years old. The mission of Girl
Scouts is to build girls of courage, confidence and
character, who make the world a better place!
Miss Ginnie feels scouting is important because
structure and sisterhood are incredibly important
to young girls and Girl Scouts are a huge player in
doing just that. “For some girls, Girl Scouts is the only
opportunity to connect with other girls and community
role models,” she says.
Some of the great things you do as a Girl Scout
include mentoring the future scouts through programs
that engage girls and promote courage, confidence and
character. Girl Scouts also provides custom programs
that engage the curiosity and wonder of young girls. It
empowers youth with mentorship and opportunity.
