It's Here! The aMUSE in a Day Journey Guide

I created this guide after completing the aMUSE Journey in a Day with my 4th grade juniors.  It is designed to assist your efforts to complete this journey in a day, weekend or sleepover. You will want to personalize it based on what products and resources you have on hand or that you can find in your area, as well as what your girls core interests are, logistics, etc.

I started out with completely different ideas. Once I went shopping and did the foot work, some ideas changed.  With others I used the original idea but executed it differently. There were also times when I changed the order of tasks, especially when the girls needed a break. If you get stuck or have any questions, feel free to reach out to me and I will do my best to help you. Good luck!  You can download the ebook here.

aMUSE in a Day Outline & Photo Album

The iamgirlscouts "Comprehensive Guide to Completing the aMUSE Journey in a Day" has been completed.  Whoop! This post is the accompanying photo album. My photography skills are not so great (next on my list of skill building tasks!) are mediocre at best.  For that reason I didn't want to include photos in the e-book.  Hopefully they will give you a visual of the day and help you come up with ideas.

Looking for Camps you Attended as a Girl Scout?

Here is by far the latest and greatest of websites I've found for Girl Scout nostalgia.  We are so lucky to have the internet.  We have access to a vast array of OPP (Other People's Photos) from before many of us were even born.  Since I have very few photographs from my year's in Girl Scouts (two, to be exact) I often reference online sites to "tickle" my memory. 

The website proved to be a huge Gold Mine:  Vintage Girl Scouts, My favorite section of the site is their Girl Scout camp resource. The camp pages,, organized by state, have vintage photos, news clippings and statistics on Girl Scout camps all over the United States. Even those that are closed or gone. So take a walk down memory lane!
