Three things for Thursday

By Lisa Kaminski; Manager, Community Development

bronze2Looking for program opportunities for the girls in your troop? Here are three:

Flashlight Zoo Safari – Friday, November 20, 6:30-8:30pm, Thompson Park Zoo, Watertown, NY. Grab your flashlight because nighttime is the right time to experience the zoo in a whole new way!  Your safari will begin with a meet and greet with some of our animal ambassadors—we’ll pet the cutest and cuddliest animals first before moving on to owls, spiders, and other creatures that go BUMP in the night. Next we’ll take a behind the scenes tour and grab a few special snacks to deliver to some of our nocturnal creatures! Our after dark tour will include visits to the wolves, lynx, bobcats and more! The evening will end with a late night snack. Invite a friend to come along and show her how much fun Girl Scouts can be! Be sure to bring your own flashlight!

Wonders of Water – Saturday, November 21, 10am-12noon, Phelps, NY. Did you know that 71% of the earth is covered in water and almost all of it is in the ocean? Just how much water do you use everyday? Play some fun games with us and learn about the many amazing properties of water and why water is so important. WOW yourself and everyone around you as we learn to love water, save water, and share what you learn.

Snowflake Ball – Saturday, December 19, 6-8pm, Watertown, NY. Dress up in your finest clothes and dance the night away as you celebrate winter with your Girl Scout friends! The Snowflake Ball has become a winter tradition you don’t want to miss!

  1. I got so excited when I first saw the advertisement for the upcoming events. I thought how much fun my girls would have, and that maybe by their word of mouth our troop size might increase. Then my bubble was burst yet again! For those of us who lead troops in the Corning, Bath, Addison, and neighboring towns, we often feel left out. Driving anywhere between 2 – 4 hrs is not plausible for what is supposed to be a fun day. We end up spending more time in the car than at the activity that was planned. We kindly ask on the girls behalf that someone plan some fun activities in the Horseheads/Corning area. Thank you for your time.
