We are pleased to present GSCB’s 2013-2014 Council Program Guide, filled with events and programs for Girl Scouts of all levels. This year includes expanded programs throughout the Delmarva Peninsula – from Northern Delaware to the Eastern Shore of Virginia. Be sure to read the multi-level section for programs designed for more than one Girl Scout level. The council’s Program Department partners with organizations such as museums, nature centers, parks and arts institutions to develop programming connected to Girl Scout Journeys and badges. Every program geared towards a Journey or badge includes this information in the description. Many of our programs have a strong focus on science, engineering, technology and math (STEM) as well as developing leadership skills for girls. Please visit our website, www.gscb.org to learn more about Girl Scouts’ focus on leadership activities and STEM. A few highlights for the upcoming membership year include the 15th Women of Distinction program and the 4th Annual Thin Mint 5K Run/Walk. Engineering Your Tomorrow will also run for its 25th year. We look forward to another successful On My Honor: A Celebration of Achievement event on December 1, honoring a large number of Girl Scout Gold, Silver and Bronze Award recipients. Please mark your calendars and support these accomplished girls. Information about the 2013 Fall Product Program and the 2014 Girl Scout Cookie Program is also included in the guide. Near the end of 2013, we will launch the next phase of our e-business programs in Personify. Troop leaders, parents and guardians will be able to register girls for programs directly through Personify on the GSCB website. Programs will be searchable by Girl Scout level, location and type. We will announce this new capability via our website, Facebook page and electronic newsletter once it becomes available. We look forward to another great year of Girl Scout activities on the Delmarva Peninsula!

Who Can Attend An Event? All girls are invited to attend the events listed in the Council Program Guide. If the girl is not a registered Girl Scout, we simply ask that you go online to www.gscb.org, fill out a membership form and pay the $15 membership fee in addition to the event cost. You may attend with your troop, bring a friend or just come join the fun with your fellow Girl Scout sisters! To register for programs, please use the Event Registration Form found on page 51 or at www.gscb.org. When filling out your registration form, please be sure to include the name of the event for which you are registering and mail or fax to: Girl Scouts of the Chesapeake Bay 501 S. College Ave., Newark, DE 19713-1301 For questions, call: T: 302-456-7182 or 800-341-4007 x7182 F: 302-456-7188 List All Participants Please list all participants, including girls and adults, by the name used on their Membership Form. Please do not use nicknames and be sure to spell their names correctly. If you are planning to bring girls who are not yet registered members, please also include a Membership Registration Form and $15 Girl Scout membership fee. (Membership Registration Form may be completed online at www.gscb.org). Siblings and Friends Female siblings and friends are welcome to join us if they meet the grade level requirements of the program. If they are not registered Girl Scouts, they will simply need to pay a $15 membership fee, in addition to the event cost, and complete the online membership form at www.gscb.org. Please do not bring children who are not within the grade level requirement unless noted in the event description. Boys are welcome to attend events only if specifically noted.

Adult/Girl Ratios A minimum of two registered adults (unrelated) must accompany every troop to an event, unless otherwise noted in the event description. Please consult Volunteer Essentials for exact ratio information. Individually registered girls must be accompanied by one adult. When a program specifies that adult attendance is not required, a medical release form and parent permission slip must be provided to the program leader. Our primary goal is to provide quality programming to girls. As a result, there may not be space available above the adult-togirl ratios. Payment Include full payment with all registrations. We accept troop debit cards, Visa/MasterCard/Discover/American Express credit cards, checks or cash. Checks need to be written in blue or black ink. Please make checks payable to GSCB and include a phone number and driver’s license number on the front of check. Please do not send cash through the mail. Payments will be processed as they arrive at the GSCB Resource Center in Newark. Financial Assistance Girl Scouts of the Chesapeake Bay is grateful to the many individuals, service clubs and businesses for their support of the Financial Assistance program. GSCB also receives funding for financial assistance from the Wilmington Flower Market, the Christmas Shop, the United Fund of Talbot County and the United Ways of Delaware, the Lower Eastern Shore of MD, the Virginia Eastern Shore and Cecil and Kent counties. Financial Assistance is available for all Girl Scout events unless otherwise noted. For more information, contact GSCB at 800-341-4007. Confirmations Once we receive your registration, a receipt will be sent via email (troop leaders will receive confirmation for troop registrations). The confirmation will indicate whether you have been registered for the event or on a waiting list. If a program is not filled by the closing date, it may be cancelled and notifications will be sent via email.

Cancellations and Refunds Events are held rain or shine unless inclement weather would adversely affect the program. In those cases, participants will be notified of cancellation and/or rescheduling of programs. If GSCB cancels an event for any reason or cannot place participants in the event of their choice, GSCB will issue a complete refund of the registration fee. If the minimum number of participants is not met 14 days prior to the program date, unless otherwise noted, the program will be cancelled. Cancellation and refund requests must be made in writing. Thirty days written notice is required to receive 50 percent of registration fees of $7.50 or more per individual. No refunds will be issued if less than 30 days written notice is given, unless for medical reasons. Refunds for medical reasons will only be processed if notification is made before the event or within one week following the event, accompanied by a doctor’s note. No refunds will be issued for individuals who do not show for their scheduled event. The $15 membership fee is non-refundable. Get Involved: Volunteer Become a part of Girl Scouts and you can discover the fun, friendship and power of girls. Whether you are a girl, college student, parent or adult (male or female) looking to make a difference in a girl’s life, there is something for you in Girl Scouts. Patch Programs GSCB has a variety of patch programs to enrich and supplement the group experience with fun opportunities to Discover, Connect and Take Action. Visit www.gscb.org for specific information about these patches. Religious Recognitions In addition to our My Promise, My Faith award, religious recognitions are developed and administered by each of the major religious groups. Through Girl Scouting, each girl is encouraged to become a stronger member of her own religion. Girls who choose to participate in one of these programs do so outside the regular troop meetings with a group of girls guided by a spiritual counselor or with their own families. For more information, please visit www.prayerpub.org or call 800-933-7729.

Camp is one of the healthiest places to be. Research shows that exercise and just being outside help to lower anxiety. Our camp sites offer opportunities to build new skills, gain a greater sense of community, and develop a deep appreciation for nature. Whether for a day, a week or longer, Girl Scout camp gives girls an opportunity to grow, explore, and to have fun. Every girl should have a chance to experience camp! Take a trip to every camp! Girl Scouts of the Chesapeake Bay has four beautiful camps with a wide variety of amenities and fun program opportunities. We have these sites so all members can learn more about themselves, each other and about nature. Come and visit…Take a walk, have a picnic or come for a fun program. Once you see the camps we hope you will come back to stay for longer. If you are interested in reserving a building or site, it’s easy and financially reasonable!

Ranger Assistants Needed Do you love to be outside and work with your hands? If so, consider being an assistant to the camp rangers and be a part of a team that is making a difference. Please contact the ranger at each camp site to let them know that you are interested. Occasionally we are in need of services such as: tent setup, tent take down, cleaning, carpentry work, electrical work, plumbing and landscaping. If you have skills in any of these areas, please contact the ranger at the site you would like to assist. For one day of skilled labor you will be offered property benefits and a VIP invitation to the Annual Property Celebration. The rangers are in need of help throughout the year. Just one day of service can make a difference. Please contact each camp ranger directly to learn more about property needs.

What can a girl do? A world of good! I’ll show you how (her own way) There’s more to Girl Scout Cookies than what’s in the box. When a Girl Scout participates in the Girl Scout Cookie Program, she’s building a lifetime of skills and confidence. She learns skills essential to leadership, to success and to life. There are no limits. She can be anything. She can do anything. Girls also are able to earn money towards fun and exciting girl-planned program activities, as well as contribute to providing service within the community. What Girls Learn: The 5 Skills When girls participate in the largest girl-led business in the world, they learn these essential 5 Skills: 1. GOAL SETTING: Girls set cookie sales goals with their team and create a plan to reach them. 2. DECISION MAKING: Girls develop a basic business plan for cookie sales and work as a team to decide when and where to sell cookies and what to do with the money they earn. 3. MONEY MANAGEMENT: Girls develop a budget, take cookie orders, handle customers’ money and gain valuable practical life skills. 4. PEOPLE SKILLS: Girls learn how to talk to, listen to and work with all kinds of people while selling cookies. 5. BUSINESS ETHICS: Girls are honest and responsible during every step of cookie sales.

Operation Taste of Home For the past 11 years, Girl Scouts across the Delmarva Peninsula have used Girl Scout cookies to thank men and women in uniform or to support those in need. Customers can purchase cookies as a donation, giving to others while supporting Girl Scouting at the same time.

Cookie Business and Financial Literacy badges help girls hone their skills and learn about the world of business. The recent financial crisis has made one thing clear— many people need basic skills in managing money. Although some schools offer money management courses in high school, researchers and educators agree that financial literacy needs to start much earlier. We also know that girls are interested in becoming entrepreneurs. Girl Scouting addresses both these needs. How?

Why Do These 5 Skills Matter? When a girl has learned these skills, she’ll be poised for career success. In a Girl Scout, future employers will find: 1. A girl who can set goals and meet deadlines. 2. A girl who works well with others. 3. A girl who understands customers. 4. A girl who can influence others. 5. A girl who is honest, trustworthy, and reliable. What employer doesn’t want this?

· Girls learn the 5 Skills by selling cookies with guidance from adults. If they want to further their business skills, they can earn the Cookie Business badges. · Our Financial Literacy badges offer a K–12 curriculum. · For girls who want to go even further by creating their own business, they can do all of the above plus earn the Innovation badges.

The “learning by doing” curriculum (aka “badges” and “leaves” for Daisies) can be found in The Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting. For more about these and other badges girls can earn as Girl Scouts, see the Badge Finder at: forgirls.girlscouts.org/badges. Can I learn from other volunteers and get some creative ideas? Subscribe to Little Brownie’s Volunteer Blog at blog.littlebrowniebakers.com and receive inspiring ideas from Little Brownie, right when you need them, right in your inbox. With selling tips, starter activities, crafts and lessons learned from other successful volunteers, the blog is sure to become one of your favorite cookie program resources. Troops can earn both patches! Two patches, one activity: GSCB Goal Setting Patch Program. Look for complete details with the Fall Product Program materials. To receive the Goal Setting Patches for the girls in the troop: 1. The girls must discuss and set goals for the 2013/2014 Girl Scout program year. 2. Complete the Goal Setting Patch Program Worksheet and Patch Order Form. a. To earn both patches, turn form into your service unit with your FPP paperwork. b. To earn just the Goal Getter patch, turn form into the service unit by January 15, 2014. 3. Participate in the 2013 Fall Product Program with at least $100 in sales. 4. Participate in the 2014 Girl Scout Cookie Program.

Camperships New friends, independence, working with others and exploring nature are just some of the benefits of Summer Camp. Yet, for many girls the opportunity to attend camp is financially out of reach for their families. Some parents need only some assistance while for others, any amount is too much to sacrifice. With your help we can make summer camp a reality for these deserving familes.
