What Can a Girl Do? More Than Ever Before!
Did you know that there are many ways to enjoy Girl Scouting besides being in a troop? Fun, flexible programs that only meet 6 to 8 times over weeks or months with trained volunteers? We call these different ways to be a Girl Scout “Pathways” and the newest programs of the Girl Scouts of Silver Sage are called Series.
BFF (Be a Friend First)– This program for 6th – 8th graders teaches girls relational and leadership skills to short-circuit bullying behavior and to prevent it from happening in the first place. BFF uses role playing, creative writing, and discussion exercises throughwhich girls explore thorny issues like peer pressure, stereotyping, gossip,and cliques.
STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) – Designed for 5th- 8th graders who are not in a traditional troop, this group meets two Saturdays per month for five months. The program provides girls opportunities not only for real-life applications of science, technology, engineering and mathematic activities, but also to find their voice, challenge them, make friends, and have fun.
Fit & Fab – This new community program is just forming for those in 4th - 6th grade. Girls will learn about healthy eating, active living, and emotional well-being to adopt and maintain positive lifestyle habits to last a lifetime.
Outdoors – Coming this fall, Outdoor Series for girls in 4th – 12th grade will experience activities and adventures that capture the Girl Scout Leadership Experience through outdoor and environmental work.
Girl Scouts of Silver Sage offers troops, camp and travel for all ages, as well as a Higher Awards program and Teen Advisory Committee for older girls with an eye towards college and scholarships. Now, the new series programs offer more flexible ways to have fun times!
