Each Amador County Troop has handled the suspension of in-person meetings in various and creative ways. Some troops have chosen to take a break at this time, while others have held virtual meetings or completed assignments from leaders independently.
Our Girl Scouts, grades K-12, have taken the initiative and learned a variety of new skills. Troops have explored and mastered culinary arts, creative skills, taken online group painting and started a troop pen pal program. They have used and improved their entrepreneur skills by creating ways to give back to people in their lives and the community. Troops have donated food to the food bank, challenged themselves to help out more at home, gifted Girl Scout cookies to hospital staff, and mailed cookie care packages to their essential teachers & family. The Girl Scouts in Service Unit 107 participated in a National Virtual Campout and pitched tents in their backyards, enhancing their outdoor skills. The girls continue to explore by riding bikes, hiking, walking around their neighborhood or visiting nearby streams or fields. They do this all while also adjusting to out-schooling. Our Girl Scouts are continuing to grow during this time in new and exciting ways.
A message from Sylvia Acevedo, CEO, Girl Scouts of the USA, “Girl Scouts at Home represents a new way to participate in the Girl Scout experience—from virtually anywhere. We’re making select Girl Scout program resources available to every girl, parent, caregiver, volunteer, and troop leader. It’s our way of doing our part during these challenging times, and to do what Girl Scouts always do: make the world a better place.”
Our Service Unit 107 Sierra Trails Leaders and Girl Scouts are amazing! Our Girl Scouts are strong, courageous, and compassionate. We are looking forward to holding in person meeting again soon.
