Girl Scout Week Door-to-Door Cookie Party
March 9, 2014 begins National Girl Scout Week all across the country. To celebrate Girl Scouts’ 102nd birthday, GSNWGL is hosting a Door-to-Door Cookie Party, Saturday, March 15, 10 a.m.- 4 p.m. ! Troops, groups, or individual Girl Scouts will be out and about searching for a Golden Ticket hidden at mystery homes around our Council! There’s one ticket in each of our 63 service areas, so all girls have potential to win a fabulous prize, such as a free overnight stay at one of our properties, a shop gift card, and more. If Girl Scouts knock on the door of a Golden Ticket home, the homeowner will inform them that they won and hand them the ticket! Unredeemed Golden Tickets will be entered into a drawing for troops who participate in the door-to-door party for the remaining prizes. To be entered into the drawing, email a photo of your troop selling during the cookie party by Wednesday, March 19 at 5 p.m. to email@example.com. (more…)
Girl Scouts of the USA CEO Anna Maria Chávez released a video statement this afternoon, confronting recent misconceptions about our organization. In the video, Chávez explains what Girl Scouts is all about and reminds us that, “A box of Girl Scout cookies is not a political statement. It is an investment in a girl and her dreams.” We are extremely proud of the great work Girl Scouts do in their communities with the money they earn from selling cookies, and we will continue to deliver the mission of Girl Scouting—to build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place—to girls and women of every background.
Cookie Season Still Going Strong!
Girls are still taking cookie orders through March 14, and will be hosting cookie booths throughout the month of March! Have you placed your cookie order yet? Make sure to ask the Girl Scout in your life about her goals, and how many boxes of cookies she needs to sell to reach them. Don’t know a Girl Scout? Call our cookie hotline at 800.246.4171 and we’ll connect you with a Girl Scout in your neighborhood.
Girls, parents, and volunteers: get more information about the second wave of cookie sales (keep goal-ing) here.
Camp registration is now open! There are lots of exciting day, weekend, and resident camp programs to choose from this year, with unique activities like geocaching, glamping, and duct tape art to more traditional camp activities like canoeing, hiking, and campfire cooking.
We’re proud to introduce some new programs to our camp lineup this year, such as Urban Adventure, which provides the perfect mix of city activities and outdoor adventures from zip lining to a drive-in movie. Back by popular demand, we are also running a number of wilderness trips this summer for girls interested in biking, backpacking, canoeing, and kayaking, as well as Wild West—an incredible hiking and horseback riding trip in the Badlands!
