    Fun game idea for the girls

    by

    I’ve been so busy doing Girl Scout stuff that I’ve had no time lately to write about Girl Scout stuff! But I did want to share this idea because it was a huge, huge hit at our last meeting and I think it’s so versatile and the girls loved it!…

    More spiders, because who doesn’t love spiders?

    by

    Feel free to take a few minutes to laugh at Superwoman’s skit about being scared of spiders, here.

    Camp Out Scream Out

    by

    The first time I took my girls camping, I was in for so many surprises.  Of course!  At the time my troop consisted of several girls who really spent so much time with me and my daughter, at my house, that I didn’t give a second thought to taking them …

    Girl Scout Crazy!

    by

     

    Like most other Girl Scout leaders out there (and I am not talking about our heroes, those leaders who came to scouting because they just WANTED to), I became a Girl Scout leader because there was no one else. The nice lady from our service unit essentially explained to …
