Summer is relaxing, fun and filled with adventure…and sometimes it gets a little boring, too! Why not liven it up with a summer service project for your Girl Scouts? Getting out and about and helping others can give summer new meaning — one that combines fun with fulfillment.
Placing Flags for Veterans
A great summer service project for Girl Scouts is to place flags at local cemeteries or find other ways to do meaningful service to honor those who have served in the military. Placing flags to honor the fallen can be combined with packing boxes of supplies and treats for those currently on duty in foreign lands. There are also plenty of auxiliary groups serving families of current military members that can use assistance in manning events and providing aid to these families.
Collect Backpacks & School Supplies
As summer wanes, children start thinking about the impending school year. A great end-of-summer service project for Girl Scouts would be to collect backpacks and other school supplies for needy children in your local community. The girls can pack back-to-school kits with a simple, one or two sentence personal note of encouragement to each child.
Keeping Hearts & Minds Open
A summer filled with the joy of helping others will keep your Girl Scout troop in readiness for the the academic year to come. Summer service projects for Girl Scouts will help keep their hearts and minds open!
