Cookie Program Surveys Now Available
 Take time to give us your feedback about this year's Cookie Program!
We have four surveys this year: for girls, for parents, for troop leaders / cookie managers and for service unit product sales managers.  We will be sending links to the parent and girl surveys early next week, but wanted our troop leaders and product sales volunteers to get started now.  Survey links will be live through Friday, February 22.
Thanks for your feedback!  Your comments help us make improvements for next year.
 Fun with a Purpose
Girl Scout activities are fun with a purpose. As a troop leader, how can you use the 3 Girl Scout processes in everything you do?
The 3 processes: girl-led, learning by doing and cooperative learning - bring the leadership experience to life.
Check out this great video on how to create activities and experiences using the 3 processes.


Geocaching - Training for Adults
If your troop is interested in Geocaching, consider taking the adult training so you can geocache with your troop on your own schedule. One training is March 16 at Camp Prairie Schooner, and the other training is April 27 at Camp Daisy.
Once you have participated in the training, you will have all the information on how to do this activity with girls and access to GPS units you can rent from the GS office. Please contact Kate Hood by email or at (816) 759-3042 if you have any questions.
