Photo of the Week!   


Girl Scout Junior Troop 10031 of Pulaski went to Jefferson Community College this summer to learn to design and program  robots. These "dog" robots had a goal of getting as many dog treats as possible. All part of the Junior "Get Moving" Journey!   

Want your photo seen here?  Submit your clear, good quality photos that show girls in activities (not large group shots) to Kim Dunne

Recruitment 2013 - Ideas From YOU!


ICWT linear 
Where are you placing the I Can't Wait to be a Girl Scout bookmarks?  How about Red Book Shelves that display free books for kids?  The play area of your local Barnes & Noble?  School fairs, Child Care Councils? Dentist and doctor offices?  Even your garage sale!! (Don't laugh one staff person recruited a volunteer 
and two girls this way!)
Your idea may appear here!
Join Us to Remember Our Camps!
