Rock the Dam
with Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada! Join us for a symbolical bridging across Hoover Dam as we honor the past and welcome the next century of Girl Scouting. Rock the Dam, commemorates the historical beginnings of Girl Scouts in Southern Nevada by gathering where it all started in 1932 with 22 girls in Boulder City.
Participants will kick off the celebration in one of ten designated decade areas that reflect an era of Girl Scout history. Girls, alumnae, and volunteers will celebrate 100 years of Girl Scouting by exchanging S.W.A.P.S. they create to represent one of these decades. Click here for more information.
Daisy Petal: Vi's Petal - Be a sister to every Girl Scout
A great way to celebrate World Thinking Day is to earn Vi's petal. Learn more about your sister Girl Scout's both near and far. What do you have in common? What makes you different? What makes you special?
To earn Vi's petal, you must do all three activities:
- Read "Vi's Story," then talk about it
- Create a mural about girls around the world with your Daisy friends
- Practice being a sister to every Girl Scout
When you have earned Vi's petal, you'll know exactly what "be a sister to every Girl Scout" means.
To get started on Vi's petal, refer to your Daisy, Girl's Guide to Girl Scouting for Vi's story and a complete list of activities (you must complete one activity from all three areas).
