It's time for some fun! Now that school has started and everyone is starting to settle into a routine, it's time to look at your calendars and plan some fun. That's the great thing about Girl Scouts, you can have lots of fun while learning things.
GSSA works to offer programs that an individual troop can't easily plan. The program staff works hard on topics for events that girls will have a lot of fun with. Those opportunities are listed on the www.girlscoutssa.org website under EVENTS and PROGRAMS There are deadlines for each event, so pay attention to those, since some of the programs fill quickly.
The fall program schedule is chock full of great events spread throughout the council. You can go back in time to the 1800s for a program in Dothan. There's an archeology program called Dig In, where you explore the fun of learning what is in the dirt. A program we have done parts of but will do a longer session is called Camp Conservation, where girls look at skulls, learn about water, recycling, birds and the environment. The University of South Alabama is offering ChemScouts where girls can explore chemistry in a fun and exciting manner. The Dauphin Island Sea Lab mini-destination is always a great program, but tends to fill quickly. For those of you who are night owls, what about a program where you explore what happens at night in the outdoors? Another fun program is the Princess Party with the Kappa Delta Sorority at USA.
Hopefully, you can find some fun programs for your girls this fall that everyone will enjoy. Have fun while learning!
