nypenn_2-color_crHave you checked out the council website lately? There are some great new volunteer training events planned as well as some exciting girl program event opportunities! Here are three:

Spring Fling at Hoover Adventure Center — Friday, April 22- Sunday, April 24. Mark Your Calendar! Spring Fling is back by popular demand! This is a weekend retreat for learning, relaxation, and FUN! Come one day or stay all weekend. Spring Fling 2016 includes a variety of workshops planned for your needs and interests. Experience the traditions of Girl Scouting by participating in Show & Tell and traditional Girl Scout ceremonies. Explore our great outdoors; increase your skills and knowledge with Simply Successful Overnights and Camping (SSO/SSC). There are workshops for first-year leaders, First Aid/CPR certification, NEW Journey Camp, and even a Bronze/Silver/Gold Awards clinic. You’ll have time to network with other Girl Scout volunteers during roundtable sessions for leaders and service unit teams and to enjoy some “me time” with a complimentary chair massage from Onondaga School of Theraputic Massage or with fellow volunteers. Come enjoy all we have to offer!

Adventures in Chocolate – May 11, Little Falls, NY. Though we think of chocolate as something to eat today, in the eighteenth century chocolate was a very popular drink. Girls will learn about the history of chocolate and see a live demonstration of the chocolate-making process that was used in the colonial era.  Girls will make and taste a snack using chocolate made from an 18th century recipe. (A minimum of 10 Scouts needed for this program. Small groups may contact the site for special arrangements.)

Frog Frenzy – June 1, Little Falls, NY. Through a hands-on exploration of live pond animals, Girl Scouts will learn how to identify the animals found in a pond, their role in the pond, animal life cycles, and the food chain of a pond. We will also get a chance to see a lot of wiggly creatures! (A minimum of 10 Scouts needed for this program. Small groups may contact the site for special arrangements.)
