Girl Scout Mission

Girl Scout Law

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

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 to be a sister to every Girl Scout.

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 word “God” can be interpreted in a number of ways, depending on one’s spiritual beliefs. When reciting the Girl Scout Promise, it is okay to replace the word “God” with whatever word your spiritual beliefs dictate.

Tips and FAQ’s Discover – Connect – Take Action  Gain Leadership Skills! • Girl Scout troops have the opportunity to participate in a variety of fun, engaging and educational events that empower them to discover, connect, and take action as they gain leadership skills. • Girls can attend an event individually if their troop is not attending. • All Girl Scouts of Wisconsin Southeast sponsored events are fun, interactive, held to the highest safety standards, and developed to meet the needs of all girls. • Events are facilitated by staff, volunteers, and/or girls.

Be sure to include girls in the event selection process. Including girls in selecting events provides a great opportunity to experience a girl-led process. Girls learn about decision making, finances, accountability, ownership, and the group processes. The troop, girls, and adults, are responsible for sharing their decisions about events with parents ensuring they are informed and can support the troop’s decisions.

Bridging Girl Scout Troops Troops who will be bridging in the spring (April/May), are invited to attend spring events for the grade girls will be entering into the following school year.

When does registration open and close? • Events occurring October-January: Wednesday, September 11 at 11:00 p.m. • Events occurring February-May: Wednesday, November 13 at 11:00 p.m. All events (unless otherwise noted) close two weeks before the event date if not filled earlier. If the event is full, you will be notified within three business days from time of receipt of paper registration.

What is the cancelation and refund procedure? If a troop or girl cannot attend an event for which they have paid, notify the council by the registration deadline (two weeks before an event) to transfer the fee to another event (one transfer only). If the event is canceled by the council, full refunds will be issued.

When will I receive a confirmation? All registrants will receive a detailed confirmation by email two weeks prior to the event. It will contain event details including appropriate dress, items to bring, directions, and a map. The person who registered the troop is responsible for ensuring that everyone has received the confirmation.

What is expected of troop leaders and adults? • Troop leaders are responsible for obtaining permission slips and for meeting Safety-Wise adult to girl ratios for the event. • Attending adults are expected to assist the girls when needed and ensure appropriate girl behavior.

Will girls earn a recognition? All events are connected to the Girl Scout Leadership Experience and many help girls earn a Girl Scout recognition – a badge or Journey award. When you see Earned award, girls will complete all five steps to that badge or Related award, girls will complete some steps to that badge. Visit www.gswise.org to see the specific steps girls will complete.

How many adults can we bring to overnights? Bed space is limited. We ask that troops only register the required number of adults to meet Safety-Wise ratios.

What Program Aide (PA) opportunities are available at events? Girl Scouts in grades 6-12 are always welcome and encouraged to help and lead activities at events for younger Girl Scouts.

Journey Jumpstarts Key Camp Winding River, Neosho Chinook Program Center, Waukesha Silverbrook Program Center, West Bend Trefoil Oaks Program Center, Kenosha PA = Program Aide Opportunities

What is a Journey Jumpstart? Take a moment and think about a favorite memory from a trip you’ve taken. It’s most likely not the T-shirt or magnet you brought home. Your favorite memory has more to do with the fun adventures you had with your family or friends, new people that you met, or a new food you enjoyed eating. For girls, Journeys are all about the experiences and the adventures they discover with friends. A Journey is a trip that girls take to build their leadership skills. It’s the core leadership program, a series of three themed books for each level – and like a trip, it is about the things girls do along the way. At a Journey Jumpstart, girls will get a “jumpstart” on their Journey adventure by engaging in various Journey activities and earning one of the three awards in that Journey. If girls decide they would like to complete all of the awards after the event, that’s up to them. It’s a girl’s Journey, so she chooses where it will take her. Adults will see how to do activities right from the Journey, make adaptations to activities to meet girls’ interests, and take side trips to do completely new activities that are related to themes within the Journeys. Adults are also encouraged to attend an enrichment session on journeys about supporting girls in their next steps. Enrichment sessions will happen during the event and allows adults to learn more, network, and also be engaged with their girls doing the activities. During the event, all of the activities will be set up as stations. Girls will work as a group to determine how they will decide which activities to do, there will be many to choose from. Each troop/ team is responsible for making sure that all their members are engaged along the way.

It’s your Journey so you decide! • Girls pick and choose the activities and work on them together as a troop, supported by the adults attending with them, or • We’ll create teams for girls attending individually.

Fee includes: • A Journey book for each girl, distributed at event • An adult guide for each troop/individual, distributed at event. Adults will be directly supporting their girls but can also participate in a Journey enrichment to facilitate continuation of the Journey.

Take Action Girls in grades K-12 Girls can Take Action by impacting and benefiting communities in a greater way than ever before to make our world a better place. By going on a Girl Scout Journey or earning the Girl Scout Bronze, Silver, or Gold Awards, girls will: • Investigate issues in their community • Identify and understand the root cause of these issues • Develop a Take Action project that tackles an issue that is meaningful to them Girls track the success of their project in a measurable way and gain an understanding by finding a way to ensure that the project creates lasting change, not only for the moment, but for the future as well. These three characteristics: root issue, measurable, sustainable, are what differentiate Take Action projects from community service projects. Go to www.gswise.org to find ideas and links to opportunities for girls to Take Action or provide community service in a topic area they are passionate about.

Additional Event Opportunities Evaluated and approved by GSWISE, Community Event Providers offer quality events and activities for girls, troops, and families. These opportunities are specifically aligned to the Girl Scout Leadership Experience.

How Community Event Providers work: • Community event listings are found on our website at www.gswise.org. • Listings are organized by focus area (Arts & Theater, College & Career Exploration, Environmental Awareness, Healthy Living & Relationships, Sports, STEM). • Opportunities are updated several times throughout the year. Check the website frequently for new opportunities. • All registration and staffing for these events are handled by the specific organization. Please contact the organization directly to register for an event or if you have questions. • All events are reviewed and approved by GSWISE to ensure quality of activities and compliance with GSUSA’s Safety Activity Checkpoints.

Interested in becoming a Community Event Provider? If you have resources or expertise to offer programming to girls or want to learn more about becoming a Community Event Provider, please email CEP@gswise.org for more information.
