Happy Summer! This virtual space is where Girl Scouts along with their parents / caregivers can find six weeks of fun & skill-building patch programs and other resources tailored just for the summer at home with the family or in small groups as social distancing guidelines are outlined for your area. This space will have new resources added every Wednesday through July 12. We will utilize our Facebook page to highlight the new resources added.
Because many of these resources include navigating online, we want our Girl Scouts and parents/caregivers to review our Internet Safety pledge before beginning the fun.
