Girl Program and Adult Learning Guide August 2013 • January 2014


Girl Scout Mission

Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.

The Girl Scout Promise

On my honor, I will try: To serve God and my country, To help people at all times, And to live by the Girl Scout Law.

The Girl Scout Law

I will do my best to be honest and fair, friendly and helpful, considerate and caring, courageous and strong, and responsible for what I say and do, and to respect myself and others, respect authority, use resources wisely, make the world a better place, and be a sister to every Girl Scout.


Greetings! Girl Scouts of Central Indiana is excited to premiere new programming and events, sure to inspire our girls and adult volunteers and further encourage leadership development. Our dedicated staff, in collaboration with engaging community partners, gained new opportunities to build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make central Indiana and the world a better place. Girl Scouts positively impacts the lives of girls and our communities. It has been proven that Girl Scout alumnae feel better about themselves, are more active as mentors and community volunteers, vote more regularly, are better educated, and enjoy higher household income. We see living, breathing examples of that every day and our programming supports her journey. I encourage you to invite the girl next door, your daughter’s classmate or relative to a Girl Scout event. It is our obligation to reach out to every girl and make Girl Scouting available either to do on her own or with a troop. A transformation awaits-a balanced leadership of women and men in one generation of girls and you can help us reach this goal. On behalf of our girls, thank you for your time and devotion to Girl Scouts of Central Indiana. Enjoy browsing our 2013-2014 Girl and Adult Program Guide, and visit girlscoutsindiana.org to register for activities and events. It has never been easier to get girls involved in Girl Scouts! Warmest regards,

Deborah Hearn Smith Chief Executive Officer

Troops earn 10% of gross sales to fund troop activities. • Girls can take orders for magazines, delicious nut products, and candy. • It’s easy to earn troop funds when girls go online to learn about Internet safety and send emails to friends and family offering them a wide variety of magazines to purchase online. No hassle, no product to handle, nothing to deliver! Troops earn $2 per girl for participation in online program. • Customers can now purchase nut/candy items to help feed the hungry right here in central Indiana.

Tell Your Story!

The Case of the Missing Cookies

Grades: all

Grades: 4, 5

Experience the power of storytelling—an ancient art form and one of the oldest learning tools used to pass down values, customs, and history from one generation to another. You will weave your own story and then attend David’s Gonzales’s performance of Sleeping Beauty at the Tarkington. Young and old will be filled with wonder as Gonzales presents his fun, fanciful, rhymed verse interpretation of this classic fairy tale complete with live music and video projections. The show is recommended for ages 7 and older.

What happened to the missing cookies? The baker is missing too! Use clues that were left behind at the crime scene to try to solve the case. This is your chance to become a CSI officer and solve the case while earning your Detective badge. Good Luck!

Core outdoor skills development

Fire-building This is a hands-on session where you will learn the three parts of the fire triangle, identify the three types of firewood, how to lay, light and extinguish a safe fire, and how to recognize minimal impact for campfires.

The outdoor experience has always been an important component of the Girl Scout program. Before a girl can experience the benefits of hiking, camping, and more, adult volunteers need to know essential information to have successful, safe outings. Some sessions are offered for leaders to learn alongside their troops so both can gain ever-increasing confidence and skills.

Who should attend: Any registered adult who has not taken Outdoor Cooking or Camping Anywhere. Fee: None Time: Average 1 hour

Basic Outdoor Skills

Outdoor Cooking

Get prepped to take the girls on a day or overnight camping experience. Know what appropriate outings are for girls at each grade level as well as your girls specifically. Know what to expect and to pack for your first outing and how to involve girls in the planning and duties while camping. Learn how to build fires and create simple meal plans including safety and hygiene.

Bring a fire scarf and your taste buds to this one! Outdoor cooking isn’t difficult, but it helps to have some practice. You will learn the practice of safe fire-building and cook entrees, sides and snacks using several different techniques. Some recipes will be classics for Dutch ovens and pie-irons, and some may be creative, like muffins in orange cups. We’ll have a chance to sample everything we cook, so let us know of any dietary restrictions or allergies when you register.

Who should attend: Registered adults who want to plan a fun, successful outdoor experience with their girls.

Troop Travel

Geocaching is one of the hottest new high-tech, family-friendly sports. Use a handheld GPS unit to find secret boxes other people have hidden.

Letterboxing is an older version of geocaching, using traditional compasses and fancier puzzles, and trading images with artfully carved rubber stamps. Bring a compass and/or a GPS unit, if you have one. Carnavigation systems don’t work too well for this. Dress to be outdoors and do a bit of hiking.

Girl Scout Safety Guidelines 1. Follow the Safety Activity Checkpoints. Instructions for staying safe while participating in activities are detailed in the Safety Activity Checkpoints. Read the checkpoints, follow them, and share them with other volunteers, parents, and girls (as grade-level appropriate) before engaging in activities with girls. These are found at girlscoutsindiana.org in the volunteer section of our website. 2. Arrange for proper adult supervision of girls. Your group must have at least two unrelated, approved adult volunteers present at all times, plus additional adult volunteers as necessary, depending on the size of the group and the ages and abilities of girls. Adult volunteers must be at least 18 years old and must be screened by the council before volunteering. One lead volunteer in every group must be female. 3. Get parent/guardian permission. When an activity takes place that is outside the normal time and place, advise each parent/guardian of the details of the activity and obtain permission for girls to participate. 4. Report abuse. Sexual advances, improper touching, and sexual activity of any kind with girl members are forbidden. Physical, verbal, and emotional abuse of girls is also forbidden. Report any suspected abuse or neglect to the Indiana Child Abuse and Neglect Hotline at 800.800.5556, and contact Meg Booth, Director of Volunteer Services, at 317.924.6839 to alert the council that you have made the call. Under Indiana law, each citizen of Indiana is considered a “mandated reporter” and State law requires the Department of Child Services to protect the identity of the reporter. 5. Be prepared for emergencies. Work with girls and other adults to establish and practice procedures for emergencies related to weather, fire, lost girls/adults, and site security. Always keep handy a well-stocked firstaid kit, girl health histories, and contact information for girls’ families. 6. Travel safely. When transporting girls to planned Girl Scout field trips and other activities that are outside the normal time and place, every driver must be an approved adult volunteer and have a good driving record, a valid license, and a registered/insured vehicle. Insist that everyone is in a legal seat and wears her seat belt at all times, and adhere to state laws regarding booster seats and requirements for children in rear seats. 7. Ensure safe overnight outings. Prepare girls to be away from home by involving them in planning, so they know what to expect. Avoid having men sleep in the same space as girls and women. During family or parentdaughter overnights, one family unit may sleep in the same sleeping quarters in program areas. When parents are staffing events, daughters should remain in quarters with other girls rather than in staff areas. 8. Role-model the right behavior. Never use illegal drugs. Don’t consume alcohol, smoke, or use foul language in the presence of girls. Do not carry ammunition or firearms in the presence of girls unless given special permission by Girl Scouts of Central Indiana council for group marksmanship activities. 9. Create an emotionally safe space. Adults are responsible for making Girl Scouting a place where girls are as safe emotionally as they are physically. Protect the emotional safety of girls by creating a team agreement and coaching girls to honor it. Agreements typically encourage behaviors like respecting a diversity of feelings and opinions; resolving conflicts constructively; and avoiding physical and verbal bullying, clique behavior, and discrimination. 10. Ensure that no girl is treated differently. Girl Scouts welcome all members, regardless of race, ethnicity, background, disability, family structure, religious beliefs, and socioeconomic status. When scheduling, helping plan, and carrying out activities, carefully consider the needs of all girls involved, including school schedules, family needs, financial constraints, religious holidays, and the accessibility of appropriate transportation and meeting places. 11. Promote online safety. Instruct girls never to put their full names or contact information online, engage in virtual conversation with strangers, or arrange in-person meetings with online contacts. On group websites, publish girls’ first names only and never divulge their contact information. Teach girls the Girl Scout Online Safety Pledge (at www.girlscouts.org/help/internet_safety_pledge.asp) and have them commit to it. 12. Keep girls safe during money-earning. Girl Scout cookies and other council-sponsored product sales are an integral part of the program. During Girl Scout Product Programs, you are responsible for the safety of girls, money, and products. In addition, a wide variety of organizations, causes, and fundraisers may appeal to Girl Scouts to be their labor force. When representing Girl Scouts, girls cannot participate in money-earning activities that represent partisan politics or that are not Girl Scout–approved product sales and efforts.

Blue Book of Basic Documents

Safety Activity Checkpoints

This book explains the governing policies for Girl Scouts as a national organization and is applied to Girl Scouts of Central Indiana. Found on our website in the Volunteer Resources section.

Safety Activity Checkpoints are in-depth safety guidelines that adult volunteers use for Girl Scout activities, ranging from canoeing to surfing to selling cookies. Girls can also use these checkpoints to ready their group for a girl-led activity. When preparing for any activity with girls, always begin with the Safety Activity Checkpoints written specifically for that particular activity. Each Safety Activity Checkpoint offers information such as where to do the activity, how to include girls with disabilities, where to find basic and specialized gear required for the activity, how to prepare yourselves in advance, and what specific steps to follow on the day of the activity. If Safety Activity Checkpoints do not exist for an activity, check with the council program department as some activities are allowed only with written council pre-approval, only for girls 12, and over and some activities are off-limits completely. Safety Activity Checkpoints can be found on our website.

This award is open to all adult leadership roles, including troop, camp, series, events and travel pathways to girls’ participation in Girl Scouting. A nomination form and at least one letter of support as defined in the nomination guidelines are submitted to Volunteer Services by February 1. The nomination is reviewed by the council’s recognition committee and approves or denies the nomination.

Volunteer Service Award Pin Pins to recognize years of service in Girl Scouting are available in five year increments up to 30 years. Pins can be purchased at your local Showcase. Official Volunteer Pin Volunteer pins may be purchased at the Showcase by any Girl Scout volunteer.

Leadership of Excellence Award The Leadership of Excellence Award recognizes an adult volunteer who demonstrates a profound direct impact on the lives of girls and serves as a positive role model. The impact must benefit the Girl Scout Leadership Experience and address the three leadership keys, Discover, Connect and Take Action. At least one of the five outcomes in each of the leadership keys must be identified.

Online Resources In looking at Girl Scout recognition research the type of recognition that volunteers say they appreciate the most is recognition from troops, individual girls and parents. Find tools on girlscoutsindiana.org to recognize leaders and other volunteers informally. President’s Volunteer Service Award The President’s Volunteer Service Award is part of the Points of Light and is a way to thank and honor Americans who, by their demonstrated commitment and example, inspire others to engage in volunteer service. As an affiliate of GSUSA your local troop or service unit can register to be a Certifying Organization. Go to presidentialserviceawards.gov to learn more about these awards and how to become a Certifying Organization. Use GSU003 as your ID when registering.

Girl Scouts of the USA recognition awarded at the service unit level A nomination form is completed and submitted to the service team recognition coordinator or to Volunteer Services by March 1. Nominations are reviewed by the service team recognition committee and approves or denies the nomination.

Volunteer of Excellence This award recognizes volunteers who have contributed outstanding service while partnering directly with girls in any pathway to implement the Girl Scout Leadership Experience through use of the National Program Portfolio or who have contributed outstanding service in support of the council’s mission delivery to girl and adult members.

Other recognition resources Grade Level Volunteer Pins Volunteer pins for each grade level are available through all Showcase locations. These pins are great resources to welcome and thank volunteers into roles working directly with girls or supporting a grade level behind the scenes. These position pins are not earned, but given in recognition of service supporting Girl Scouts in a variety of ways.
