Junior Journey tip of the week – events, series, and travel

Junior Journey Tip #2 – Attending council events, series, and travel programs is a great way to enhance or supplement the Journey activities you are doing during troop meetings. Here are a few council programs and how they tie to the Junior Journeys. To read more about these events and to register go to: http://www.girlscoutsofcolorado.org/activities

It’s Your Business – Run It (Series) – The “aMUSE” Journey is all about roles and careers. This series (also offered as a one day event) will help girls develop their own business ideas and introduce them to inspirational small business owners.

Junior Get Moving! Overnight at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science – This fun event will help girls earn the awards in “Get Moving”.

Agent of Change Journey Weekend – Girls will directly work toward awards in the “Agent of Change” Journey.

Living Green & Rocks and Roles, Women on the Ridge – The science activities girls will do with great adult volunteers will link to the “Get Moving!” Journey by providing girls with great hands on activities (see page 14-16 of the Adult Guide).

Winter Weekend (travel opportunity) – This trip will get girls exploring the great outdoors – an important compontent of the “Get Moving!” Journey.

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 “aMUSE” 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 “Get Moving!” 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 “Get Moving!” 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.

What ideas or experiences do you have with linking council or service unit events to Journey themes?
