Whether you were waiting for Thin Mints, Caramel deLites, or Peanut Butter Patties – all your favorites are back this Girl Scout Cookie season! By now, you know that the Girl Scout Cookie Program isn’t just about eating delicious treats. Girls who participate in the cookie program develop these Five Skills that last a lifetime: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics.

This year we have something new up our sleeves: our 5 for 5 Drawing!

Customers who purchase five or more packages of Girl Scout Cookies in a single order will have their name placed in drawing for five cases of Girl Scout Cookies. Donation cookies count toward the five packages. So, remember to stock up and then hope you hit the motherload!

Don’t forget these important Cookie Dates:

Girls Take Orders: January 22 – February 7
Digital Cookie orders: January 22 – March 30
Cookie Delivery: March 2 – 10
Keep Goal-ing Orders: February 8 – March 25
Cookie Booths: March 5 – April 3

Camp Registration Opens January 13!

IMG_0779In Girl Scouts we embrace the individuality of every girl and know that for each girl, her camp experience will be uniquely hers. Our camp programs are designed to offer variety, flexibility, and fun no matter her interests. Whether she is exploring the night sky, creating an artistic masterpiece, or challenging herself on a daring adventure, our 2016 camp sessions promise an adventure for every girl. And camp is more than a canoeing adventure or a week of art exploration; it builds girls of confidence, independence, and a greater sense of self.

We can’t wait to see how you camp! So, read through the Camp Guide, plan your adventures, and register for an amazing summer!

A Holiday Message from GSNWGL

RS9945_Ski15_NationsCap_4722-scrThis time of year reminds us of all the joy in our lives – whether your joy comes from family, friends, a good cookie, a cozy campfire, or your sister Girl Scouts we hope you continue to share that joy with others. One of the cornerstones of the Girl Scout Movement is service. This holiday season, like those before, has been filled with Girl Scouts going out in the community and making a difference.

Juliette Gordon Low, our founder once said, “To put yourself in another’s place requires real imagination but by doing so each Girl Scout will be able to live among others happily.”

That statement is so true and our Girl Scouts exemplify it! Our Girl Scouts are thinking of others and then going out and helping where they can. Little, wiggly Kindergarten Daisy are singing carols at nursing homes, energized Brownies are adopting families, and our dedicated older Girl Scouts are volunteering at shelters and food pantries. These Girl Scouts are learning about their community and themselves as they lend a hand and we are so proud of them!

As you celebrate the holidays with your family and friends be thankful that your Girl Scout is learning, growing, and becoming an amazing person who will change the world – we sure are!

Happy holidays!

Talking to Children When the News is Scary

Whether due to natural disasters, acts of terrorism, or other factors, there have been many challenging times in the past few months, and the 24/7 news cycle has been there to cover it all, at times blanketing media outlets for days on end with such coverage.

We’ve heard that volunteers and parents are seeking guidance on how to talk to girls about these incidents. Leveraging the expertise of Dr. Andrea Bastiani Archibald, GSUSA’s resident developmental psychologist, they’ve posted  tips for parents and volunteers  on their blog to use in speaking with children when the news is scary.

Whether now or in the future these tools can provide guidance to caregivers concerning difficult circumstances.

Office Closure

All GSNWGL shops and offices will be closed for an All-Staff Meeting on Tuesday, December 8 from 9:30 a.m. to noon.
