My week at Kamp Kiwanis was great! My friends and I enjoyed so many fun activities like arts and crafts, boating, nature, archery, swimming, singing camp songs, and banana boating. My favorite activities were probably boating, archery, and banana boating.  It's hard to choose which activities were my favorites because I enjoyed them all.

The session I signed up for at camp was called Night Owls. We got to stay up later than all of the other campers doing fun night activities.  We went night swimming, hiking in the dark, and stargazing. I really liked going night swimming. It was great!

While at camp, my group completed some badge work. We worked on the Cadette Girl Scout Way badge. One of the requirements was to throw a party for an adult Girl Scout volunteer. We worked hard to throw a surprise party for Bossy, the camp director. It was really fun! We planned activities for all of the other girls to do and even baked cookies. The party was awesome!

Overall, my stay at Kamp Kiwanis was great! I made new friends while doing some of my favorite outdoor activities. We all had so much fun and I can't wait to go back next year!

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!

GSUSA just let us know that in celebration of Girl Scout Week, the CBS Early Show will air a Girl Scout segment tomorrow morning (Thursday, March 11, 2010) beginning at 7:30 a.m. (We believe this is Eastern Standard Time, but haven't been able to confirm yet.)  If you're already on your way to school at that hour, maybe someone you know can Tivo it!

 

At about 8:30 a.m., one of the hosts will conduct an interview with Laurel Richie, Chief Marketing Officer, about new things going on in Girl Scouting.   Laurel Richie is the special guest speaker at our annual meeting, March 27!

 

Girl Scouts from at least five Tri-State area councils will fill the CBS plaza; and former Girl Scout Gold Award earner Chelsea Masterson--along with current Girl Scout Troop Leader from Girl Scouts of Jersey Shore (see Troop Web site: www.orgsites.com) is expected to chat alongside Laurel about the benefits of Girl Scouting.

 

Happy Girl Scout Week!  

Aliyah_Sarah_Diaz Dennis1-1.jpgPress Reps Aliyah and Sarah met many distinguished Girl Scout alumnae at the recent Alumnae Mixer in Montgomery.  One particularly special alumna they met was Patricia Diaz Dennis, a former chair of the National Board of Directors for Girl Scouts.  Press Rep Sarah said, "Tonight was a very important and fun evening because I got to meet ladies who achieved many things.  There were many things that these women talked about that I could relate to.  It was awesome!"  The girls took a few minutes to sit down with Ms. Dennis and ask her a few questions.

 

How old were you when you became a Girl Scout? 6 or 7; I joined as a Brownie.

 

Why did you join Girl Scouts? Girl Scouts I knew were doing great things.  I liked meeting other kids who had different stories and made different choices.  I made friends through Girl Scouts and it changed my life.

 

What is your fondest memory of Girl Scouts? I am still a Girl Scout; I am a lifetime member.  I went to an event in San Antonio, Texas about 3 years ago, and a senior in high school talked about how Girl Scouts changed her life.  The girl was from Latin America and made friends through Girl Scouts.  She had decided to go to college and was the first in her family to do so. I have enjoyed hearing many girls talk about how Girl Scouts changed their lives.

 

What is your favorite Girl Scout cookie? Dulce de Leche.

 

What advice do you have for Girl Scouts and non Girl Scouts growing up today? Decide who you want to be and be true to it.  Don't pay attention to the media and how you look.  Believe that it is about what's inside. It's not about how you look.  Girl Scouts does that for girls.  It tells them that they can be strong, courageous and powerful and accomplish many things no matter what you look like.

 

What is the most important thing you learned from Girl Scouts? I learned that I can do things.  Girl Scouts gave me the courage to try new things.
