A recipe fit for the White House!

Girl Scout, Alexandra Nickle, wins trip to meet First Lady. Could you imagine that being healthy and creative could get you an invitation to the White House? That’s what happened to Alexandra Nickle (nicknamed “Bananas”), a Girl Scout Junior from Troop 33 in Phoenix. As part of First Lady Michelle Obama’s “Healthy Lunchtime Challenge,” one winning “chef” from each state was chosen to enjoy a “kid’s state dinner” at the White House in July. Alexandra’s mother, Lauren Nickle, received the notice in June while Alexandra was at Camp Maripai. Of breaking the news to her daughter, Lauren said, “I know phone use at camp is for emergencies only – no cellular, no nothin’ – but reporters were calling and calling to interview her! The camp director [Crystal Kilkenny] was so accommodating and we set up a day

and time.” When Alexandra came to the phone, she didn’t know what her mom was calling about. “It was a surprise that the reporter was on the phone, who got to hear her reaction for the first time! It made her week even more amazing – the girls were all talking about it,” said Lauren.

thrilled when President Barack Obama stopped by to congratulate them, too. According to the First Lady their meal was just like regular state dinners, except at this one, “you are allowed to use your hands.” The President joked that this special treatment “wasn’t fair”

The recipe Alexandra submitted, “Banana’s Black Bean Burritos,” features mangos, black beans, and onions on a whole wheat tortilla. This creative, delicious and healthy recipe made the cut and Alexandra flew off to attend this once-in-a-lifetime lunch at the White House with Michelle Obama in July! At the lunch, Alexandra and the winning chefs from other states sampled some of the winning recipes. They were continued on PAGE 3.

“Girl Scout camp is a place you can forget about life and be yourself.”

2014 Cookie Program

We heard similar comments from our campers when asked why they came to camp. This summer we welcomed more than 3000 girls to our three residential camps outside Prescott and Payson. Another 200 girls enjoyed Day Camp on the Road in Flagstaff, Lake Havasu, Window Rock and in the metro Phoenix area.

January 8 - March 9, 2014

“I had a great time at camp for my first time. I loved the counselors.”

New this year: Cookies Now! Cookies will be available right from the start so girls can sell to neighbors, friends and families with cookies in hand. And, all Council proceeds from cookies sales over 3 million packages will be used to fund the transformation of Camp Sombrero. More details to come in the Cookie Issue of the Listening Post (December).

These campers, both new and seasoned, experienced making new friends, learning some new skills and improving others, having fun without technology and, perhaps most importantly, learning more about themselves, becoming more self-sufficient and gaining in confidence.

Key dates:

“I can’t wait to come back next year and have more fun.”

“I wanted to see what it would be like being by myself without mom or dad.” The Arizona Cactus-Pine Council is blessed with the financial resources to maintain our residential camps so girls can enjoy a meaningful outdoor experience in a safe, nurturing environment. As you may have read, some other Girl Scout councils around the country have had to sell of their camps. We believe every girl should have the chance to go to summer camp. This year, we provided financial aid to the families of 500 girls so they could experience summer camp.

Of course, the summer was not without its drama as wildfires blazed in many areas. The Doce fire, which started several miles north of our Willow Springs Program Center, put us all on alert. Although many people and animals were displaced by this fire, our girls remained safe. The staff and counselors worked hard to provide a ‘normal’ camp experience for the girls that week, while also preparing for an evacuation, if needed. It was a more difficult experience for parents watching the dramatic news reports. Email updates were sent to parents to keep them informed and reassure them that their daughters’ safety and well-being continued to be our top priority. The Yarnell fire, and tragic death of so many firefighters, ignited a spontaneous response from many, many Girl Scout troops who organized food and clothing drives and then coordinated efforts to deliver these items to Prescott for families who had lost everything. What a beautiful illustration of Girl Scout leadership in action!

“Camp completes my summer.” As we move into fall, troops are becoming more active, Independent Girl Members are charting their own path, and the Fall Product Sale is about to begin. Meanwhile, our camp team is busy working on plans for next year.

continuing to bake dog treats for the local Animal Rescue, she will be giving cooking demonstrations at the Arizona State Fair this fall. Come out and support her on Girl Scout Day, October 19!

While in DC, Alexandra and her mom also visited the National Museum of American History's exhibit, ‘FOOD: Transforming the American Table’ and planted herbs for a local children’s organization. They also discovered a very cool Girl Scout exhibit and Alexandra just had to capture the moment for her Girl Scout sisters back home! On the whole experience, Alexandra says, “I think it’s really cool that I got to go to Washington DC...I’m really proud of myself for representing Arizona and Girl Scouts!” This has also led to more opportunity and Alexandra will be a busy girl this school year.

Is there a Girl Scout License Plate in your Future? YES! Governor Brewer signed SB 1343 at the end of April to allow Girls Scouts to have a special Arizona license plate. Great thanks to Senator Kimberly Yee for sponsoring this bill and for shepherding it through the legislative process. Now we’re working on some design ideas to share with you in the next couple of months. We’ll definitely need your input!

Through the journey ‘World of Girls” this Brownie Troop learned some children are homeless or have to leave their homes for various reasons. So, they got to work! They collected items at their Cookie Booths so children can have their own backpack of special items wherever they go. The bags consisted of a stuffed animal, crayons, shampoo, soap, wash cloth, toothbrush, tooth paste, tissues, Chapstick, Phoenix Suns folders, stickers, and pencils!
