Check out these activities if you are at a loss for what to plan for your summer Girl Scout meetings. When planning a Girl Scout meeting in the summer months, you will need to determine if you want to just have a social gathering, or if your Girl Scouts will meet in the summer to complete a particular service task.
If you choose a social gathering, there are many fun summer Girl Scout meeting activities like swimming at a local pool or beach, hiking in the woods, picnicking at a local park, or even horseback riding. If the weather is too hot to allow for outdoor activities, remember you can always choose an indoor venue as well.
Some indoor activities that are perfect for a summer Girl Scout meeting are bowling, ice or roller skating, and sometimes there are even local indoor pools that can be accessed for a small fee. Whatever you choose for your summer Girl Scout meeting, make sure you call ahead to determine hours of operation and restrictions on group size and make sure that food and drinks can be brought to the location or may be purchased on site.
Additionally, it is always wise to send a memo prior to your meeting to emphasize that, as Girl Scouts, it is important to observe proper etiquette at the site and leave it in the same condition (or better!) than it was prior to your summer Girl Scout meeting.
