Carla Lasky is a Girl Scout Troop Leader from Duluth. Recently she sent in a letter showing appreciation for sister volunteer Shirley Balgaard who introduced her to new international aspects of Girl Scouting.We thought you might enjoy hearing some of the insights she shared.

 

"... Eleven years ago, I started my troop. We ran our meetings, did some of the council events and went to Camp Roundelay. Then I met Shirley Balgaard! She opened up the world of Girl Scouts to me. She taught me what Roperunners and SWAPaloozas were by letting me help her run one of each. She showed me how to have an International Festival for World Thinking Day. She signed our troop up with hers for Our World, Our Family camp, which is amazing!

 

She also exposed me to the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts. If you have attended the Duluth area World Thinking Day program, your girls have earned world badges and are on their way to earning their Global Action Theme badge. This is a curriculum put together with the help of the United Nations. This is an excellent program for all ages and works on issues related to the world.

 

She got me involved with the Greenblood news which has sooo much information and ideas. We even got our GS penpals from around the world here. Through this site we got involved with a SWAP group and exchanged swaps from all around the world. Tessa and I have had dinner made for us by three Taiwan leaders, who shared with us how GS is done in their country. We have done exchanges with Austraiian troops of cookies and patches.

 

I could go on. I just want leaders to know that there is so much out there for your girls. It takes a leader to expose them to all that is available. And a huge thank you to a great leader and friend, Shirley.

Welcome

The 2013-2014 Girl Scout year begins on October 1, 2013.   Recruitment events are held late August, September and the beginning of October.  Click here find a recruitment event near you!  Feel free to refer back to this link as additional dates will be added. 

Membership
Girl Scouts provides incredible opportunities for girls to develop qualities that will serve them all their lives. Girls develop leadership skills, lifelong friendships and earn meaningful awards. Through Girl Scout programs girls learn the importance of responsibility, goal setting, team work and flourishing in a unique, all-girl environment. Girl Scouts help girls expanding their knowledge to provide opportunities that excite them and enhance their lives.  These activities may include: troop/group meetings, council programs, sports, camping, arts and crafts, money management, preparing for college, travel and making a difference in their community and world! Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place.

Girl Scouting is open to every girl in grades Kindergarten through 12th grade who accepts the Girl Scout Promise and Law and pays $15 in annual membership dues.

Through Girl Scouting and the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, girls grow and learn new skills in an environment where they feel safe and accepted. Adults are trained to put the needs of girls first, develop strong girl-adult partnerships, encourage girls to share their ideas and provide mentoring, encouragement and coaching. The girl-led activities focus on learning by doing and working together. As girls mature, their level of leadership responsibility expands.

It's never too late to join Girl Scouts. A girl can join at any time of the year and at any age level. Refer to Linda Bear's, Membership Specialist, contact link on left side of this page.

Many Ways to be a Girl Scout
Girls participate in Girl Scouting in many ways. When a girl joins, she can choose one, two, or all of these ways to participate:

  • Join a troop with a group of girls her age
  • Become an independent Girl Scout member (Juliette Girl Scout) and enjoy a variety of activities outside traditional troop settings
  • Travel to regional, national and international destinations
  • Attend Girl Scout day or resident camp
  • Join a series that focus on a particular topic – careers, engineering, sports, theater, etc. – with the same group of girls
  • Come to single day events and meet different girls at every one
  • Experience virtual programs delivered in a secure environment 

The Girl Scout Leadership Experience engages girls to discover themselves, connect with others and take action to make the world a better place.

Holding up the Girl Scout sign, I began the Promise confidently: “On my honor, I will try…” But, I stopped suddenly to swallow an unexpected lump in my throat. Looking down at the tiled floor of the church basement, I was a bit embarrassed by the sudden trickle of tears the words brought to my eyes: “To help people at all times…”

 

Finishing in a whisper, I juggled my presence of mind to recite the Law along with the other attendees of the New Leader training and the sudden, overwhelming memories of Girl Scouts in my younger years: beautiful, shining years of meetings and field trips and overnights. Leaders who declared “great job” no matter how badly you did. Camping trips hilariously punctuated by wet tents and burnt food. Hundreds of cases of cookies piled in our family’s barn when my mom once volunteered as Community Cookie Coordinator. Now, standing in a circle with other young mothers whose Kindergartners, like mine, were chomping at the bit to don the little blue vests, I would bestow these beautiful, shining experiences on my own girls.

Experiences gaining confidence. Growing up in New England, I attended Camp Wind-in-the-Pines in Plymouth, Massachusetts, where the camp song begins “Some call it fun, while some may call it ma-a-a-dness! A ham by nature, I was never afraid to sing the loudest or get up on stage, but I was shy about being athletic. I preferred not to sweat “ever” and I cramped up in the first 20 yards of a jog. But, the swim coach at Camp Wind-in-the-Pines (Sunshine was the only name I knew her by, of course) didn’t buy it. Slapping the green swim cap of an intermediate swimmer in my hand, she pushed me to bend my knees deeper to dive further; to relax yet engage my muscles to float on my back; to kick and stroke in harmony to actually move along in the water, not just make a splashy show.

 

Sunshine wasn’t the only person who contributed to my confidence then; wrapped in their grungier-by-the-day beach towels, my tentmates patiently waited through my sluggish laps, leafing through a wrinkled Sassy magazine at the edge of the greenish-goldish water.

 

Experiences shaping character. Seniors in high school, my troop saved money fiendishly for years to get ourselves - and an assortment of mothers, aunts, and sisters - to London for a European excursion. Donning windpants and backpacks in the sunny but chilly English spring, we stayed in the Lord Baden Powell Scout Center, ate fish and chips, and snapped 35mm photos of ourselves performing cheerleading stunts in Trafalgar Square. One afternoon, in the shadow of Kensington Palace, there occurred a moment of disagreement about the palace’s tour hours or cost or some other logistical cog in our day’s schedule. Frustrated, I vented my opinion on the problem loudly, brattily, to our troop leader. Rather than telling me I was rude (I was rude!) or solving the problem for the group of girls, she gently pointed me toward two, red-clad guards wearing classic plumed helmets. Culpable for my childishness, I gulped and approached the guards slowly to ask them our question. No one gloated as I sheepishly repeated the information to the group, and our leader gave me her standard, but sincere, “great job!”

 

Experiences showing courage. I am now a fourth-year Daisy leader; having accompanied my older daughter and nine other Daisies through two years of scouts and bridged them to Brownies, I turned back to begin Daisies anew with my younger daughter and nine fresh Daisies. Last year, in the small lobby of a retirement home, the girls entertained the residents with holiday songs. My nerves were piqued. Having recently moved to our town and begun a new troop in Minnesota & Wisconsin Lakes & Pines, I’d never been to this retirement center; I had no reputation as a good leader (or not) here; I didn’t actually know the girls that well yet. Still, the visit went smoothly until a resident seated in a wheelchair next to the Christmas tree shook his head and croaked “no” to one of our girls when she offered him a Christmas card. Perhaps other small children would have become shy or even scared. But, the man, clearly unaware of his surroundings, didn’t rattle this Daisy at all; she offered the card a second time and asked sweetly, “don’t you want a Christmas card?”

 

This is where my grand plan to hand down the beautiful, shining experiences of Girl Scouts to my daughters leaves off. That is, rather than see the Girl Scouts in my life - leaders, friends, my mother, my sister, my daughters, and their friends, and their mothers - as parts of a big, happy memory, I see them as contributors to a continuing experience that expands, turns a corner, and grows a new dimension every time I hold up the Girl Scout sign to start a meeting or take a silly photo of the girls (on my phone now rather than a 35mm).

 

Girl Scouts has not imbued me with special talents or abilities that make me courageous, confident, or of strong character; on the contrary, Girl Scouts in my past like my supportive friends and patient leader as well as those in the present, like the courageous, confident Daisy who showed immense character through kindness to an aging man, encourage me to pursue these things every day.

Reflecting back to when I began searching for an internship, I never imagined I’d end up at the Girl Scouts. Social work is about identifying social justice issues that affect people’s quality of life; cookies, crafts and camp didn’t seem to qualify as a social justice issue. However, during my internship I saw first hand that Girl Scouts isn’t just about having fun, it’s about breaking down barriers that prevent girls from being able to reach their full potential such as; economic disadvantages, cultural differences, and media influence.  I am grateful that I had the opportunity to work with the girls to teach them financial literacy skills that they will be able to utilize in the future.

 

As my time at the Girl Scouts comes to an end I am able to look back on my first day and see the changes not only in the girls that I’ve worked with but in myself as well. While implementing the Girl Scouts in ACTION curriculum I not only taught the girls but I learned so many new things from them that I will use in my future career. Every girl needs a role model to look up to and I’m so glad that I was given the chance to be that for some girls.
