GSUSA Announces the New Outdoor Badges!

Excerpt from GSUSA Email News:


Girl Scouts cast more than 80,000 votes throughout the "Girls' Choice" process—which marked the first time ever that girls across our Movement were invited to vote directly on a Girl Scout Leadership Experience (GSLE) badge series. After choosing "Outdoor Explorer" from a range of outdoor themes, they voted on the type of activities to be linked with each badge, followed by the physical designs.

The winning badges are:


Brownie

Outdoor Adventurer. Girls have a choice of outdoor activities, including wading in a creek, bike riding, and developing a camping skill.

Junior

Horseback Riding

Cadette

Archery

Senior

Paddling. Girls can canoe, kayak, or paddle board. 

Ambassador

Ultimate Recreation Challenge. Girls have a choice of five outdoor challenges, including rock climbing, ziplining, and waterskiing.

Freebies: 2015 Tags and a Trefoil Line!


I love my iamgirlscouts peeps!  I'm working on all of your suggestions for resources, so keep them coming.  First, I updated the gift tag for 2015.  To make it fancy, simply mount it on a couple of layers of scrapbook paper and punch a hole in the top.  Voila!  You can add it to bridging gifts, cookie incentives or end of the year treats. To see how I used them in 2014, go here. Download the tags here.



Another suggestion, from another awesome reader, was to create a horizontal line or divider that can be used on the web and in printable materials.  You an download the line here, or simply right click the graphic above and save to your computer.

I hope these items help you create lovely and cute tools for your troops!

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.
