Girl Scout Daisy + Brownie + Junior ACTIVITY GUIDE


You know the feeling when you just can’t wait for tomorrow? The feeling you get when you’re with your friends, and you’re talking about all the fun things that could happen? We love that feeling! So let’s do all the cool stuff you imagined – like exploring the outdoors, creating your own masterpiece, or helping the community with new friends. We’ll always be counting down to the next adventure – and the next one, and the next one – together.

Every time you show your courage – it grows. Juliette Gordon Low founder of Girl Scouts

JOIN US TODAY FOR YOUR NEXT GREAT ADVENTURE!


OUR MISSION

At Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines, girls have new experiences that give them that super-excited, jumping, giggling, butterflies-in-the-stomach feeling. Experiences that inspire them to look forward to what they’re going to do today, tomorrow, and even ten years from now. Girl Scouts CAN do ANYTHING! Some of the amazing things Girl Scouts have done: • Turned ordinary household items into robots • Convinced the mayor to install a swing in the park for children with diverse needs • Hiked the Appalachian trail

Pretty cool, right? And yes - parents can be a part of the fun too! Share all these fun and exciting experiences with your girl by becoming a volunteer. There are many ways to volunteer from becoming a Troop Leader to a Parent Volunteer to being a Day Camp Director. Become a role model she’ll always remember. Volunteer today! Visit www.nccoastalpines.org/volunteer

Girl Scout Cookie Sale The annual Girl Scout Cookie Sale Program is an amazing experience! Besides earning funds for your troop, you can earn great prizes for yourself. And while having fun, you’re also building skills like budgeting, marketing, planning, and goal setting which will help you throughout your life! This year’s sale kicks off January 3, 2014.

Girl Scout Bronze Award This is the highest award a Girl Scout Junior can achieve. To earn the award, you’ll team up with other Girl Scout Juniors. Together, you’ll pick a project that you care about and that will make a difference in the world.

SPECIAL GIRL SCOUT DAY – FEBRUARY 22 World Thinking Day 2014: Education Opens Doors for all Girls and Boys Each year on World Thinking Day, girls participate in activities and projects with global themes to honor their sister Girl Guides and Girl Scouts.

CREATING THE GIRL SCOUT EXPERIENCE WELCOME FAMILIES TO GIRL SCOUTS OF THE USA

SHOW GIRLS THEY BELONG TO A BIG SISTERHOOD

GUIDE GIRLS TO DEVELOP AS LEADERS

EMPOWER GIRLS TO TAKE ACTION IN THEIR COMMUNITIES SUPPORT GIRLS TO BUILD SKILLS THROUGH PROFICIENCY BADGES EXPAND GIRLS’ VIEW OF THE WORLD

CELEBRATE WITH CEREMONIES AND TRADITIONS

USE A GIRL-FRIENDLY APPROACH

ENCOURAGE GIRLS TO EARN AND LEARN THROUGH THE GIRL SCOUT COOKIE

Girl Scouting helps girls become leaders in their daily lives and in the world. Let girls know about all the fun they’ll have—and tell families what Girl Scouts does and why it matters. Help girls make the connection between their troop and the millions of girls around the country and the world who share a mission to make the world a better place. Use the national leadership curriculum to help girls experience the three keys to leadership—Discovering Self, Connecting with Others, and Taking Action— in the world. Girls want to know they can make a difference in the world. Help girls identify a problem they want to solve, reach out to others who can help, and put together their Take Action project. Girls feel proud and confident when they’ve learned a new skill through earning a badge. Show girls the badges available at their grade level and guide them as they earn the ones that interest them most. Give girls the opportunity to go to new places, meet new friends, and talk to experts in various fields. This expands their horizons and helps them imagine all kinds of new possibilities for their futures. Hold award ceremonies to celebrate what girls have learned; enjoy beloved Girl Scout traditions, such as flag ceremonies, sing-alongs, and campfires; or come together at bridging ceremonies to mark the moment when girls move to the next level in Girl Scouting. Girls have fun when they can shape their own experiences, do hands-on activities, and work together as teams. Help make this happen by using Girl Scouts’ three processes: Girl Led, Learning by Doing, and Cooperative Learning. Coach girls to develop five key skills—Goal Setting, Decision Making, Money Management, People Skills, and Business Ethics—by taking part in the largest girl-led business in the world.

PROGRAM INSPIRE GIRLS TO CONTINUE GROWING THROUGH GIRL SCOUTS

Share with girls the exciting opportunities they’ll have—to learn new things, meet new friends, and make the world a better place—by staying involved in Girl Scouts.
