Here are three things you can do, over the summer, to get ready for the next Girl Scout year.
Renew your Girl Scout membership – Take time now to register online through eBiz and you’ll be all set for starting up with you your troop again in September. Plus service units receive an incentive for all girls registered online by August 1st. This incentive is often used to help fund service unit events and encampments.
Build your own starter kit – Start with the grade level essentials pre-pack which includes the Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting, the American Flag patch, membership pins and insignia tab. Add your vest/sash, journey books, council ID set, and troop numbers. And you’ll get a great new backpack type bag to go with it all!
Begin thinking about registering for fall adult learning opportunities – check out the council website at www.gsnypenn.org and you’ll find some of the opportunities for adults coming this fall. There will be new leader nights, simply successful overnights, simply successful camping and much more!
When fall arrives and the new Girl Scout year begins you’ll be well on your way to a great Girl Scout experience!
