GS_DisasterResponse_2013_forGirls.gif
When bad things happen, Girl Scouts always want to help -- especially their sister Girl Scouts.  But what is the best way to go about helping?
 
GSUSA has provided a document that will help you make informed decisions about:
  • Ways to help disaster survivors


  • Planning for disasters in our own communities


  • Thinking big about preventing future disasters.

Are you an outgoing person who would like to tell others why Girl Scouting is important to you?  Then submit your application to be a Girl Scout Press Rep!  Girl Scout Press Reps can be girls or adults, who enjoy public speaking and/or writing and would like to represent the council.   Press Rep activities vary.  They may include writing articles, public speaking and more. Press reps will be required to write at least three articles during the year about Girl Scout activities for possible publication.

 

Remember: Press Reps can be girls or adults!  Both perspectives are welcome.  Click here for the Position Description and Agreement.  Click here for the Application Form.

Dear Scout:

I hate creepy bugs.  What should I do about bugs at camp?


Signed, 

C.O. (Creeped Out)

Dear C.O.,

I'm not crazy about bugs, either. But I know they do good stuff for the environment. I try to change how I think about them so I won't be scared or creeped out.  I say, "Hello, Friend Bug, would you mind getting off the path in front of me?"  Then I just walk around them. No big deal. 

Of course, sometimes I eat them, but you might not want to do that.

Your Camping Friend,

Scout

Dear Scout:

I want to go to Survivor, but I don't want to be voted off any island.  What happens there?


Signed, 

Concerned about Surviving

Dear Concerned,

Our Survivor camp sessions aren't about competition -- they are about learning fun outdoor skills.  Like putting up a tent, cooking over a campfire, chasing squirrels through the woods...squirrels...um, what was the question?

Your Camping Friend,

Scout
