GirlTime logo
 
Do fun Girl Scout activities (and badge work) all summer. GirlTime is a 'summer fun by mail' program. Girls receive a booklet in the mail in June, July and August with activities and project ideas. Besides the booklet, each month's packet includes small items to complement the activities. At the end of the summer, each girl earns a GirlTime program patch. GirlTime booklets are designed specifically for Daisies, Brownies and Juniors. Sneak Peak: the June issue features gardening.

About the Photo On Top

 

Earlier this month UW Madison Campus Girl Scouts led a Mystery Trip. Their surprise destination was Camp Brandenburg for a traditional Girl Scout camp-out. The girls learned new songs, made yummy food over the campfire and connected with older Girl Scouts who shared what they love most about Girl Scouting and why they are lifetime members. Troops 2960, 1375 and 1098 participated and had a blast!
