Looking Forward to the National Convention!

It is one of the many outdoor experiences that keeps getting reiterated to me constantly throughout the year, whether a Daisy or a Cadette.

It’s no surprise that when troops start up in the fall again, one of the first things they say they will want to do is go camping, every weekend if I’d let them.

In a matter of weeks, fall recruitment season for troops will start up. But also for me, in approximately 2 months, I will be traveling to Salt Lake City for the 53rd National Convention in October. I am excited to hear more about our suggestions, thoughts, questions, discussions, and challenges regarding outdoor experiences in Girl Scouts.

Proceeding the convention, I will also be attending the History Conference. Learning from other councils’ best practices and methods regarding collections and organizations of local council Girl Scout historical material is fascinating and helpful.

I am so excited to recruit more girls and for my trip to the History Conference and to the National Convention. Most importantly, get outside and enjoy the outdoors!
