Celebrate Girl Scout Week!


girl-scout-week-2016

Girl Scout Week is March 6-12, 2016! This special week is a longstanding tradition dating back to the mid-1900s. A Girl Scout Handbook dated 1940 describes Girl Scout Week as a time when, "Girl Scouts make a special effort to tell the community what they're doing and why they ask for help to carry on their program."

There are lots of ways to celebrate Girl Scout Week - here are just a few ideas to help get you started!

Sunday 3/6/16: Girl Scout Sunday - A traditional opportunity for girls to attend their place of worship and be recognized as a Girl Scout.
Monday 3/7/16: Girl Scout Spirit Day! Wear your uniform or a Girl Scout t-shirt to show your Girl Scout spirit.
Tuesday 3/8/16: Citizenship Day - Take part in a flag ceremony or service project.
Wednesday 3/9/16: Outdoors Day - Take a nature scavenger hunt or play games outside.
Thursday 3/10/16: International Friendship Day - Learn about a country and prepare a traditional meal, or begin writing letter to a far away pen pal!
Friday 3/11/16: Arts Day - Visit an art museum or try a new craft
Saturday 3/12/16: Girl Scout Sabbath - A traditional opportunity for girls to attend their place of worship and be recognized as a Girl Scout.
