GS Central: Swaps

Girl Scout swaps is a fun and neat way to engage the girls in creating small momentums of special events. Swaps can be created to exchange with other girls in different troops.

Swaps may be exchanged during service unit events, council events, or even regional events. They may also be sent to other troops around the world who are interested in swapping.

Welcome to Girl Scout Fun!

Welcome to my newest blog called Girl Scout Fun! I hope that you will find new ideas here, and share some of your own!

This is my second year helping with the organization in our local area. Previously, I have helped with cub scouts for about four years. I am also an organizational leader for a small 4-H group.

I personally feel that the youth of today are faced with so many more things than we were as adults. When I was young and involved in scouts and 4-H, it made a very large impact on my life. When my home life was full of chaos (I will spare the details), the leaders and adults around me gave me purpose in my life. It made such a difference in my life, that one of my purposes in life NOW is to get involved and MAKE a difference. I am giving back what was given to me.

I love to guide and lead the youth of today. It is a joy to see them (and my kids) learn new things. It is a blessing to see them discover and learn. It means so much to me when they look me in the eyes with pure appreciation for the experience they are involved in.

Has someone made a difference in your life when you were young? How can YOU give back in a positive way today, what was GIVEN to you?

Consider taking some time to volunteer and help the youth of TODAY! They are our TOMORROW!
