Cookie Program– The Girl Scout Cookie Entrepreneurial Program is the largest girl-led business in the country. Girls plan and manage their troops’ cookie season activities and learn firsthand what it’s like to own a business. They also learn valuable skills such as goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics.
Camps– From June to August, the council hosts several sessions of summer camp at Camp Alice Pittenger, located in McCall, ID and Camp Ta-Man-A-Wis in eastern Idaho. All of the activities at Girl Scout camp directly translate into concepts like confidence, self-discovery, character and courage. Camp helps girl to develop social skills by interacting with peers of various economic and social backgrounds. It also promotes teamwork, cooperation and individuality through outdoor adventures and other girl-led activities. See you at camp!
