Brownie Journey Tip #2 – Take the week off of planning activities and attend a council event! Council events are a great way to enhance or supplement the Journey activities you are doing during troop meetings. Here are a few events and how they tie to the Brownie Journeys. To read more about these events and to register go to: http://www.girlscoutsofcolorado.org/activities
Making Money Count for Brownies – In the Brownie Quest Journey, girls spend a lot of time planning their Take Action projects. This event will teach girls about philanthropy and helping others. Girls can use these skills when they implement their Journey projects.
Brownie WOW! Overnight at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science – The name says it all. Girls will directly work towards awards from the Wonders of Water Journey.
Cool Science & Rocks and Roles, Women on the Ridge – The science activities girls will do with great adult volunteers will link to the WOW! Journey by providing girls with great hands on activities (see page 16-17 of the Adult Guide).
Golden Goddess: Eating for Beauty and Health – At this event, girls will discover more about health and wellbeing, and the impact it has on our self-esteem and body image. Link this event to the “World of Girls” Journey as you teach girls about being unique.
Move It! Sports Sampler & Sports Extravaganza – Healthy living is a key component to being a good leader. By taking part in sports, girls are taking care of themselves – a great tie in to the “World of Girls” Journey.
Live Healthy, Lead Healthy Expo – This event will provide girls with an opportunity to learn all about healthy lifestyles. Use the Healthy Habit Supplement books along with the “WOW!” Journey > http://girlscouts.org/program/journeys/booklets/. By attending this event, girls (and their families) will learn to have a more healthy and balanced lifestyle.
Day of the Dead “Dia de los Muertos” – This event will celebrate the traditional Mexican holiday. Spending time with Girl Scout friends and family, celebrating, and honoring the Girl Scout founder is a great tie to the “Brownie Quest” Journey.
