Super Saturday

flower_64

Join us for an exciting day of fun, networking and camaraderie while you participate in learning opportunities that will enhance your skills and knowledge and assist you in building girls of courage, confidence and character.  This event is a great chance for leaders to do something for themselves while still impacting their work with girls.  Not a troop leader?  No problem.  This is a great event for any adult in Girl Scouts to receive enrichment trainings and learn something new.

Schedule of Events

Schedule of Events: (Twin Falls Schedule may be different, due to First Aid/CPR workshop)

Traveling Girl Scout Store

The store will be onsite at the Pocatello and Twin Falls dates, with lots of great new items, including the new Fall items! We encourage you to pre-order if possible (especially uniforms and books) to ensure that we have the merchandise available for you. Please email store@girlscouts-ssc.org  or  call 208-377-2011 to place an order.

Community Service Project

We are always grateful to our partners in the community, including our location sponsors.  We would like to say thank you to them for allowing us to use the facility, free of charge, by collecting needed school supplies for families that may struggle.  Please bring an item or two to the Super Saturday Event as your registration fee.  Suggested items are new backpacks, packs of lined paper, pens, pencils, etc.

SWAPS – Special Whatchamacallits Affectionately Pinned Somewhere

SWAPS are small crafts that Girl Scouts give as gifts or trade with others.  The idea of SWAPS started at the original National Roundup Conferences.  SWAPS can be simple or complex, cheap, or expensive – whatever the maker desires.  Girls and adults, feel free to bring SWAPS to Super Saturday and share with your new friends.

Arts and Crafts Potpourri

Bring those extra craft supplies that you no longer need.  You know the ones – only five out of ten girls showed up to the meeting and you had enough for all ten.  We’ve all been there and want to “use resources wisely” so bring them to swap.

GSSSC Badge/Journey Fair

Sign up to bring a trifold poster board featuring a badge or Journey your troop earned.  Share with other what your girls loved so leaders can get ideas from each other.  Include pictures, resources including community members that may have helped, tips and tricks, etc.
