ABOUT THE THEME

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

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.

Rediscover

Girl Scout Law

GIRL SCOUTS

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.

During the pandemic, many families had to put activities on pause, including Girl Scouts. Now we invite you to Rediscover Girl Scouts! Whether you are new to Girl Scouts or a lifetime member, it’s time to enjoy the wonder and sisterhood of Girl Scouts. Discover programs celebrating our rich history and beloved traditions along with the excitement the future brings. Join us as we Rediscover Girl Scouts and celebrate our 110th year!

The Girl Scout Difference We all know the Girl Scout mission: building girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. But how exactly does that happen? Our success comes from focusing on the Girl Scout Leadership Experience (GSLE). The GSLE is designed to help girls everywhere develop as leaders and build confidence by learning new skills. It also ensures that Girl Scouts at every level are sharing a powerful, national experience – girls together changing the world!

THE FOUR PILLARS OF THE GSLE Everything in Girl Scouts centers around our four pillars, designed to meet her where she is now and to grow along with her. Whether she's building a robotic arm, coding her first app, packing for her first hike, or advocating for change in her community, a Girl Scout has an exciting array of choices to suit her interests at every age.

ENTREPRENEURSHIP

Five Outcomes of the GSLE Our GSLE is a one-of-a-kind leadership development program for girls, with proven results. When girls participate in Girl Scouts, they thrive in five key ways:

Flag Ceremony Girl Scouts show respect for the American flag with flag ceremonies. Girls take turns being the Color Bearer. Register for "Fun With Flags" (page 15) to learn how to perform your own flag ceremony.

Campfire Ash Ceremony

Girl Scout Handshake Girl Scouts have a special, traditional way of greeting each other that symbolizes friendship and sisterhood. Make the Girl Scout Sign (raise three fingers of the right hand with the thumb holding down the pinky) while shaking hands with your Girl Scout sister.

14 

Annual Program Book

Girls gather cooled ashes from a campfire into a small, labeled container – such as an empty candy tube or pill bottle. The ashes are then sprinkled into the flames of the next campfire while everyone recites the special ceremony passage. New ashes are collected the next morning to continue the campfire ash cycle. Rumor has it there are ashes from Juliette Gordon Low’s campfires still circulating around the world! Learn more at UseResourcesWisely.com.

Did you know you have Girl Scout sisters in more than 140 countries around the world? Join us to celebrate each other, to learn about our world, and to explore and take action around a common theme. Participants are asked to choose and research a country, then prepare a colorful, interactive display to teach others about their chosen country.

STEP 1 Choose a country you want to learn about. Reserve your chosen country and get further information by emailing MemberSupport@girlscoutsnebraska.org.

STEP 2 Research the country. Find out what it would be like to be a girl growing up there.

STEP 3 Create a colorful display and develop a fun, interactive activity to teach the other participants about your chosen country. Some suggestions are: • Teach how to count to 10 in the country’s language. • Perform a dance, play an instrument, teach a game, or make a craft unique to the country. • Prepare and offer small samples of a food the country is known for (no nuts, please). • Provide clothing samples, such as kimonos or sombreros to try on. New to World Thinking Day? Daisies and new troops are invited to attend without researching a country and presenting an activity. Once you experience World Thinking Day, we’re confident you’ll be inspired to return next year representing a country!

Help her gain important independent skills (like grooming, dressing appropriately, and keeping track of her own things) so that she will be ready for new travel adventures soon.

Suggest she try a longer council-sponsored trip with her troop or with a buddy. She may even be ready for an independent-level trip. Ask her what types of experiences she feels prepared for and let her know you believe she is ready. Have her participate in planning for her travel experience and with your guidance she’ll soon be ready.

Look at the independentlevel and the GSUSA Destinations trips with your daughter, and help her choose one that is right for her. Let her lead the registration and application process with your guidance and support. She’ll know that you think she is capable and ready for new adventures around Nebraska, the U.S., or internationally!

Campfire Toasted Taffy Apples Skewer an apple with a pointed toasting stick. Turn the apple over a fire or hot coals. Soon its skin will look ready to peel. Carefully peel the apple and roll it in a pan of brown sugar. Slowly turn the sugared apple over the fire. The sugar will melt and make a hard coat around the apple.

Sit-Upon Its funny name tells you what it is. Girl Scouts “sit upon it” when the ground is damp or dusty. Get a large piece of waterproof material, like oilcloth or plastic. Cut it into two squares. Put a cushion of newspaper or foam between the squares. Fasten together with staples or stitches. Make your sit-upon unique with funky fabric or add handles.

Pizza Box Solar Cooker You don't always need to burn wood, charcoal, or gas to cook outdoors. Harness the power of the sun to cook your camp cuisine! A solar cooker is a safe and eco-friendly way to cook outdoors that teaches girls the science of "solar energy." Cook foods like nachos, s'mores dip, or English muffin mini pizzas. Solar cooking is slow cooking, so be prepared to leave your food in the sun for a while. Search “pizza box oven” on Instructables.com for step-by-step instructions with pictures.

FAQS WHAT ARE THE SLEEPING ARRANGEMENTS? Everyone will tent camp (except for Daisy and Brownie Girl Scout groups, who have the option to cabin camp). Attendees must bring their own tent equipment. IS THERE ELECTRICITY IN THE CABINS? Yes, electricity is available in all the cabins. The tent camping area does not have electricity.

There are two bath houses featuring showers, sinks, and flushing toilets. There will also be portable toilets located in the tent area. With an anticipated large number of campers, showers may not be available without long waits. HOW SHOULD WE PREPARE OUR FOOD? Cooking on a gas, charcoal, or propane stove is recommended for tent campers. Campers must provide their own stoves. Cooking over a wood fire is not allowed due to regulations set by the facility. You may not bring your own wood. If you are tent camping, keep food stored in sealable containers and keep the containers in your tent or in your vehicle. Since food is prohibited in the cabins, all cabin camper meals are included in their registration fee. For more Camporee 2022 FAQs, please visit bit.ly/camporee2022.

Chaos ensues as girls try to get the watermelon in their canoe without tipping over! The team that finds the watermelon gets a prize while everyone enjoys the sweet spoils of the hunt!

Pearls In 1915, Girl Scouts founder Juliette Gordon Low sold her beloved natural pearl necklace for $8,000 (equivalent to approximately $210,000 today) to continue funding our organization. During Girl Award or “Lesson of the Pearl” ceremonies, Girl Scouts may drop (faux) pearls into a container to remind us of Juliette’s sacrifice for Girl Scouting.

The Number Three The number three is significant in Girl Scouting. The trefoil has three leaves to symbolize the three parts of the Girl Scout Promise. The Girl Scout Sign also uses three fingers to represent the three parts of the Girl Scout Promise.

The Brownie Elf Ever wonder what the figure is in the center of the Brownie pin? It is called a Brownie elf. Brownies are similar to leprechauns – originating from old English tales of magical beings who did good deeds and helpful work.


Volunteer with Girl Scouts

Ready to change the world? No matter how much time you have to give to Girl Scouts, you can make an impact. Whether you are interested in being a co-leader, adult support, cookie mom (or dad), trainer, mentor, or friend, we will find a role that suits your skills and interests.

Ways to Volunteer Be one of the nearly 3 million enthusiastic Girl Scout members who are discovering what it takes to make a difference in their community! Experience the fun, friendship, and power of girls together. Become a Girl Scout volunteer.

THE STRUCTURE OF GIRL SCOUTS To help us manage thousands of members each year, our council is split into 79 Service Units. Service Units and Service Unit volunteers play an important role in delivering the Girl Scout Leadership Experience (GSLE) throughout our state. Troops and members are organized into their Service Unit by their county and ZIP code.

1 2 3 4

Here a just a few of the many Girl Scout volunteer roles from which you can choose: 1. Troop Co-Leader: Lead a Girl Scout troop with the help of another adult(s) and become a role model for girls. 2. Troop Cookie/Fall Product Manager: Coordinate product programs at the troop level.

Volunteers are the heart of our organization!

3. Troop Treasurer: Maintain troop bank accounts and financial records. 4. Troop Adult Support: Assist with driving, planning, snacks, and more. 5. Service Unit Volunteer: Mentor other Girl Scout adult volunteers. 6. Event Volunteer: Share your skills at a council or Service Unit event.

Service Unit Roles Interested in volunteering, but not in a troop role? Volunteering with your local Service Unit may be for you! Our Service Units have roles that impact our girls, but you do not work directly with them. Work with other adults to provide a better experience for girls – help plan an event in your area, recruit girls at your local schools, or keep track of finances. We always need new ideas to help grow Girl Scouting in Nebraska and your area! Volunteering does not require a long-term commitment; volunteer for one event, one meeting, or one year in one of the Service Unit positions. Visit our website for more complete information about volunteering with Girl Scouts.

1

National Organization: Girl Scouts of the USA is national organization supporting local Girl Scout councils.

2

Local Councils: Girl Scouts Spirit of Nebraska is an independent 501(c)3 nonprofit that fundraises to operate programs and camps for girls in Nebraska and Carter Lake, Iowa.

Service Units: Within our council are Service Units, entities governed by our council policies but managed by adult volunteers who support the day-to-day operations of our troops.

4

Troops: Troops are groups of girls matched with adult volunteers who have been background screened.

Volunteer Resources Volunteer Toolkit (VTK) Try the Volunteer Toolkit! It’s a digital planning tool that helps you make the most of every troop meeting, saving you time and helping you plan. The VTK includes meeting plans that are created with step-bystep instructions for each meeting activity. This means you get a full year of Girl Scouts right on your electronic device! Want to do your own thing? You can! Each meeting plan is fully customizable.

VTK TIPS 1. Use the VTK to Best Fit Your Needs: There are plenty of resources and tools in the VTK, but not every troop will use everything available. And that’s okay! Use it for what you need. 2. Register for Council Activities: Register girls for council activities by clicking “Manage Activity” in the Year Plan tab. 3. Exclusive Content: The newest Journeys (Think Like an Engineer, Think Like a Citizen Scientist, Think Like a Programmer, and Outdoor) are found exclusively in the VTK. 4. Organize Your Troop Roster: You can find troop rosters and parent/guardian contact info for each girl in the My Troop tab. 5. Get Parents Involved: Encourage parents to stay engaged with their girls’ experiences by getting on the VTK to view the year plan and meeting agendas. Also, send customizable, pre-populated emails to parents to share the year plan, remind them of upcoming meetings, and share other important information. 6. Get Girls Outside: Tree icons next to agenda items in the Meeting Plan tab turn that activity into an outdoor experience. Volunteer Information

Financial Aid Every girl deserves the opportunity to experience the lifelong, leadership building benefits of Girl Scouts, regardless of their financial situation. Each year, we invest significant resources to ensure all girls can become Girl Scout members. Our financial aid funds extend the hand of sisterhood to girls unable to afford the basic costs of Girl Scouts: membership fees, uniforms or books, and programs that ignite their confidence to change the world. Troop dues may be requested for new troops (created in the current membership year) at a one-time maximum of $10 per girl. Registered co-leaders of new troops may request aid for one Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting for the troop’s grade level. To request financial aid for new troop materials, and/or membership dues and/or program fees, search “financial aid” on our website.

Volunteer Appreciation Thank Girl Scout Volunteers Every day, Girl Scout volunteers help girls blossom into their true potential by providing experiences that allow them to pursue their interests, passions, causes, and the leadership roles into which they can grow. Thanks to our dedicated volunteers, girls are standing up, standing out, and standing tall! Thank your awesome volunteer – here are some ways to show your gratitude:

• • • • •

Create a handmade card. Treat that special volunteer to lunch and tell them how much they mean to you. Take a group picture of the girls in your troop and decorate a frame to give to your co-leader. Complete the Attitude of Gratitude Patch Program and earn a free patch (see page 86). Recognize volunteers who go above-and-beyond with a Volunteer Award or Best of Girl Scouting nomination (see below).

See more ways to thank your volunteer at www.GirlScoutsNebraska.org/appreciation.

NEW! How to Register for a Program Online! We’ve updated the way you register for council-sponsored programs. It works more like other online shopping sites - with a cart and a checkout experience!

Here’s How to Register Online: 1. Go to GirlScoutsNebraska.org. 2. Visit our Program Calendar. 3. Find and click on the program you’re interested in. 4. You’ll be directed to our Program Registration site. From there, log in to your MY GS account and pay the registration fee.

Want to Know More? • Registering online is the quickest way to reserve your spot in the program you want to attend! • You can view programs you are registered for and past events you attended in the My Events tab of your MY GS account.

• Troop co-leaders can toggle between their family and their troop and register anyone who is a current Girl Scout member.

• As you register different members, the system will automatically pull data (names, emergency contacts, etc.) from our membership database during future registrations – no more typing in lots of information!

• You can let us know if you want to pay via Program Credit, Cookie Dough, Nut Bucks, Travel Bucks, or financial aid.

• NOTE: Your spot won’t be saved until the program registration fee is paid in full or the deposit is paid (only available for programs over $100, including travel).

• If you are paying with Cookie Dough, Travel Bucks, or Nut Bucks, you will need to contact Member Support to process your payment.

• Paper copies of program credits still need to be mailed to your local Girl Scout service center. • If applying for financial aid, you first need to register for the program online and then complete a financial aid application. Find the application on our website by searching “financial aid.”

• You can easily see if you need to make a payment. Your balance due will show each time you log in to your MY GS account. Making a payment is easy!

• Some programs have required documents and additional information for registrants. To check if this applies to you, return to the program in your My Events tab and see “Additional Documents.” Registering online is the quickest and easiest way to sign up for programs. However, if you would like to use a paper Program Registration Form, it is available on our website under “Forms.” If you have questions, our Member Support team is here to help! Call 402.558.8189 for assistance.
