April 2010 Archives

Girl Scouts of NE Kansas & NW Missouri's destination, Juliette Low Camp, has openings for camp counselors.   The girls must be at least 15 years old.   This is a great opportunity for any girl who wants a career in health care.   The cost of the Destination is $500.  The camp is for girls with physical disabilities and the counselors give the girls an opportunity for a resident camp experience.    As a selected counselor, the girls will train with experienced, special education professionals prior to the start of camp.  During each camp session, they will provide the campers with the opportunity to enjoy swimming, songs, games, and campfires.  They will also assist/take care of the campers dressing, feeding, personal care, and transportation around the camp (wheelchair power!). 

 

Counselors need to arrive July 6 and depart for home on July 31.   There are openings for 20 counselors.  The deadline for application is June 10, 2010.

Girl Scouts of the USA launched a national campaign with the girl-centered journey, It's Your Planet--Love It!, that includes eye-catching, interactive activities and games and information that we know you will explore and love.

 

Join in on the fun and check it out: www.girlscouts.org. Let us know what you think!

Girl Scouts in southern Alabama have been very busy this spring. Press Rep Morgan A. said she has been working hard on Camporee, since it's only a couple weekends away. This year her troop is running it and they are busy wrapping up all of the details. Morgan said, "The theme is under the sea. We have a lot of activities and they are set into groups. We have eco-shopping, water consumption, recycling and pollution, and some surprises!" It sounds like the girls will be learning with some really cool activities - way to go, girls!

 

Press Reps Aliyah and Cheyenne and some of their Troop (9041) visited Ellen Brooks, past-chair of our board of directors, at her church on Girl Scout Sunday. Aliyah also participated in another Girl Scout Sunday gathering at True Divine Baptist Church with her Service Unit (612).

 

Now you know what fellow Girl Scouts have been doing, what have you been up to?

Wicked (musical)

Girl Scouts went to New Orleans April 3.  Cadette Girl Scout Lily writes about her trip:

 

I went to New Orleans with my friends to see the musical play Wicked, which is the story of the Wicked Witch of the West.  It was at the Mahalia Jackson Theater near the French Quarter, so we walked to Jackson Square, got hot dogs and admired the artwork. Then we ate beignets at the Café du Monde. Now that was good! Then we hurried back to the theater to get to our seats in time for the play.

 

I really liked Wicked because I liked the costumes, the music, the sets, and the story. I liked the costumes because some of them were sparkly and old-fashioned. I liked the music because it was bouncy and the singers were really good. The sets were great; I liked the dragon and Glinda's bubble the best. The dragon sat on top of the set and blew steam while its head moved. Glinda's bubble descended from the top of the stage with Glinda in it. I liked the story because there was no clear line between good and evil, so it was more like the real world.  I had a great time!

 

Thanks for the review, Lily - sounds like you had a great time!
