Snacks

Due to allergies, outside snacks are not permitted at council programs. No food will be supplied by the council unless specifically stated in the program description.

Once registration begins, programs will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration will continue until the program has reached the maximum number allowed or the registration deadline which is two weeks prior to the program date. Programs may be cancelled if the stated minimum is not met. All programs are subject to change or cancellation.

Program Fees

All program fees must be paid in full with the registration. Fees are deposited when the registration is processed. Do not postdate checks. There will be a $25 service charge for checks returned due to insufficient funds. Fees listed are per girl. Events/workshops listed are generally for girl members only. A limited number of programs are also available for adult participation. Adults must pay when participating as noted. Unless specified as a family or parent/girl program, use the recommended ratios for the number of adults per girls as listed in the Safety Activity Checkpoints found on our website atgirlscoutsgcnwi.org/forms. Normal fee charges help cover supplies and/or facilitator’s fees. Actual costs are offset by council funding such as fall product and Girl Scout Cookie program profit, “Family Partnership” contributions, grants and other funder allocations.

Siblings

Siblings may not attend programs unless they are fully registered Girl Scouts who meet the age level recommendations for the program or if the program is specified as a family event.

Awards

Insignia such as petals and badges, journey awards and keepsakes, patches and charms are not included in the program fees unless indicated. Insignia may be purchased at any Council Shop. Requirements are achieved by the interpretation of the facilitator.

Cancellations and Refunds

If the council cancels an activity or an event for any reason, troops or families will receive a full refund. Council events and activities run rain or shine unless there are safety concerns which prompt the council to issue a cancellation notice. Participants choosing not to attend will not be issued a refund. Refunds will be made as follows: • No refunds issued on pre-purchased tickets. • Refund requests must be made in writing prior to registration deadline. • No refunds will be made for registrants not attending the program. • Girl and adult membership registration is non-refundable.

Girl-Adult Ratio

Adult volunteers are needed at some programs to maintain the appropriate girl/adult ratio. If space is limited, once the girl/adult ratio has been met, no additional adult registrations will be accepted.

Male Volunteers

Men are encouraged and welcome to participate in Girl Scouts as volunteers or event chaperones. Separate accommodations will be made as appropriate in accordance to Safety Activity Checkpoints which specifically prohibits men from sleeping in the same space as girl members. Men may participate in overnights only if separate sleeping quarters and bathrooms are available for their use. For more information about overnight regulations for male volunteers, call 630-544-5900, or e-mail: programdepartment@girlscoutsgcnwi.org.

Girl Scouts goto2040 Imagine today’s Girl Scout Daisy in the year 2040. She will be 32 years old, contributing to society as an adult in the workforce, voting in her community, and continuing to make the world a better place. Our 17-year-old Girl Scout Ambassador will be 45 in the year 2040. The world is theirs to build and to embrace for a lifetime. To prepare girls for the future, we have created Girl Scouts goto2040, a set of resources for Troop Leaders and Girl Scout Daisies through Ambassadors to use as the context of your Girl Scout Leadership Experience in your community. Girl Scouts goto2040 provides a new community context to the Girl Scout Leadership Experience. By helping a girl to understand the needs of her community, girls think in new ways about their badge earning, Take Action Projects and Bronze, Silver and Gold Award Projects with an appreciation for the project’s contribution to the region as a whole as well as impacting her own community. Supported in part by The Searle Funds of The Chicago Community Trust, Girl Scouts goto2040 has as its basis the GOTO2040 Plan presented by the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning combined with the Quality of Life Indicators for Northwest Indiana to create a vision for Girl Scouts in the geography of Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana. Girl Scouts goto2040 is aligned with the Journey series as well as The Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting. Go to girlscoutsgcnwi.org/girlscoutsgoto2040 to access resources including the GOTO2040 Short Plan, Quality of Life Indicators for Northwest Indiana, badge alignment opportunities, community tool kit for working with your local government, age chart for girls to learn how old they will be in the year 2040, and a fun cootie catcher activity to inspire new ideas! The four sections of the plan include: livable communities, human capital, efficient governance and regional mobility, all of which inspire volunteers and girls alike to look at their communities and region in a new way, with a new lens on the future. Here is a glimpse into the plan:

LIVABLE COMMUNITIES

Though opinions differ on what makes a community appealing, livable communities tend to share some common traits. They are healthy, safe and walkable. They offer choices for timely transportation to schools, jobs, services, and basic needs. They are more cost-effective for individuals and local governments. They make the region more economically competitive.

Recommendations • Achieve Greater Livability through Land Use and Housing • Manage and Conserve Water and Energy Resources • Expand and Improve Parks and Open Space • Promote Sustainable Local Food

4


HUMAN CAPITAL

The quality of our region’s labor force is crucial for sustaining economic prosperity. Increasingly, job growth relies on the availability of well-educated, skilled workers for knowledge-based industries. We can gain a significant advantage by ensuring that businesses and residents here have the skills necessary to compete with other global economic centers. Providing equitable opportunities to gain those critical skills is among our region’s most complicated challenges. Disparities in educational attainment, health, and other measures — often based on income levels, race, or ethnicity — put the entire region’s economy at risk. Recommendations • Improve Education and Workforce Development • Support Economic Innovation

EFFICIENT GOVERNANCE

Efficient and effective decision making by government is necessary to meet the goals of GO TO 2040. Now more than ever, taxpayers expect efficiency and transparency when governments invest their limited resources. To maximize the benefits that residents of our seven counties see from these public investments, government agencies across our region need to coordinate decisions and investments strategically. Better access to information will help us reach these goals by putting essential data at the fingertips of not only our local decision makers but also the residents they serve. Recommendations • Reform State and Local Tax Policy • Improve Access to Information • Pursue Coordinated Investments

REGIONAL MOBILITY

A modern transportation system is indispensable for our region’s future prosperity. To sustain our economy and quality of life, residents must be able to travel quickly and easily around our region so they can choose from a wide variety of jobs and communities in which to live. Businesses must be able to count on the timely delivery of their goods. Historically, our region’s transportation system has been a foundation of our success. But the system’s infrastructure was built decades ago, with inadequate ongoing investment to keep it up to date. While transportation is still a significant strength of this region, we must modernize our system to compete with other U.S. and global economic centers. Recommendations • Invest Strategically in Transportation • Increase Commitment to Public Transit • Create a More Efficient Freight System

Disability Awareness

Why Tease Program Booklet

BR, JR, CAD, SR, AMB Have you ever wondered how it would feel to be blind or deaf or spend your waking hours in a wheelchair? Maybe you know someone with a disability. Maybe you will someday consider a career working with people with disabilities to find ways to make lives easier or to make environments more accessible for everyone. The Disability Awareness patch program provides an opportunity for girls to better understand the daily life of people with disabilities as well as explore careers in relevant fields.

Making Girl Scout History

All Grade Levels This patch program offers troops and individuals an opportunity to learn the history of Girl Scouting while enjoying a variety of activities. The Making Girl Scout History patch serves as the base patch and has decade segments that are earned separately. Program kits to help troops and individuals earn the base patch can be borrowed from the various Gathering Places. Contact historian@girlscoutsgcnwi.org for programs.

B.F.I.T.—Be Fit All Grade Levels

Available in the council shops for BR, JR Featured in a Chicago Tribune Magazine article about girls and bullying, this illustrated booklet raises issues of how children sometimes treat each other and how it feels to be the one left out of the fun. Each scene focuses only on the children’s feet thus eliminating the common habit of stereotyping people by physical appearance. Includes adult guide.

Global Action Award

All Grade Levels The Girl Scouts Global Action patch activities are fun, educational ways for Girl Scout Daisies through Ambassadors to learn about the eight United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) to fight poverty and other important world issues. By working on this patch program, Girl Scouts of all ages are joining the worldwide effort to address issues that affect girls and women around the world as well as issues that girls can develop take action projects about in our own communities, nationally or even internationally. The MDGs are important platforms about which girls can center their Girl Scout Gold and Silver Awards.

Sisters in Scouting

All Grade Levels The Sisters in Scouting patch program teaches girls of all ages about the importance of diversity and acceptance. The activities will help familiarize troops and individuals with different religions, ethnic groups, family traditions and holidays. By participating in this patch program, girls will learn about accepting differences while discovering something about themselves along the way.

Discover Chicago BR, JR, CAD, SR, AMB

Chicago is the third largest city in the United States with a population of more than 2.8 million people. It is a great place to visit and an awesome place to live. The Discover Chicago patch program offers girls the opportunity to learn about the rich history, culture, sports, entertainment and education that our city of Chicago has to offer!

Dinosaurs - BR

Dinosaurs big and small once roamed the Earth. Today, there are no dinosaurs left, but scientists can tell us all about them based on their fossils, or preserved remains. Discover what something as simple as a footprint can tell you about dinosaurs in this Brownie badge!

Paleontology: Can You Dig It?

JR, CAD, SR, AMB Millions of years ago, dinosaurs roamed the Earth. While no humans existed to record what they ate or how they lived, paleontologists have a pretty good idea of these repiles’ habits. Follow in the footsteps of these scientists as you, too, discover the secrets of fossils.

Passport to Religions

BR, JR, CAD, SR, AMB The world is a vast and diverse place, and there are many different religions throughout. Learn more about religions around the world, including the different symbols, holy books, calendars, diet restrictions and places of worship.
