Girl Art: “Why I Love Nature”

Bridge and Water - Simone

As winter creeps towards us, suddenly all the nature around us seems a little more grey, brown and muted. Luckily, in our Seattle office we’re currently hosting an art exhibit from Snohomish Troop 48450 entitled “Why I Love Nature”. We thought we’d share their art with you, so you don’t have to come all the way to our office to see it! Read more

We know we’ve been talking about Forever Green for a while now (hint, hint, have you taken the pledge yet?) but we just heard a very cool story about how Troop 44126 just made their own paper! The project let each girl both design and create her very own hand-made paper. Read more

True Indulgence: Deep Fried Samoas

It’s smack in the middle of the Evergreen State Fair, next month the Puyallup Fair kicks off, followed by the Central Washington State Fair in Yakima… that means we’ve all got fair fun on the brain! We heard about another council in Indiana doing something pretty cool this year with their State Fair, so we sent our secret Hoosier spies to check it out and report back. Know what they found? Deep fried Samoas! Read more

The Girl Scout Journey Carved into History

The totem blessing ceremony

We’ve spent all year celebrating Girl Scouts’ 100th Anniversary with fun events to commemorate a century of Girl Scouts. Though most celebrations have been fleeting, we’re happy to tell you about a new way we’ve honored our centennial that can be seen and cherished by Girl Scouts for the next 100 years! Thanks to life-long Girl Scout, Karyn Livingston, a brand new totem pole has been erected at  Camp River Ranch! The totem was installed at camp last week, and there was a general blessing ceremony on August 15, with campers and counselors in attendance. Read more

It’s not summer without a parade!

Cadettes on Parade

In celebration of summer (and that quick heat wave that just reminded us all that it really is summer!) we’re bringing you a quick update from one of our troops on the Eastside. And since their story talks about Forever Green, we have to ask – have you taken the Forever Green pledge yet?

Last month 40 girls from Service Units 422 and 423 marched in Redmond’s Annual Derby Days Parade! Girl Scouts in the region have been a part of the parade for several years, but this year the girls marched along under the Forever Green theme. Read more

Molly Moon Sighting at Girl Scout Camp River Ranch!

Molly Moon arrives at Camp River Ranch!

It has been confirmed by our super-secret ice cream spies. Molly Moon was seen at Girl Scout Camp River Ranch last Tuesday, singing her heart out with a group of very surprised campers. Not only did they get to ask her questions about ice cream and listen to her talk about how much she loves Girl Scout Camp, but they got to pick any flavor they wanted from her ice cream truck! And who handed out the scoops? Molly, of course! Read more
