Let's see we do the normal Junior Overnight, Brownie Revel, Daisey Revel,
We have programs at the ballet, and the opera. We have an overnight at
our science museum. We do a Juliette Low Birthday party, some events that
are based on the badges, like after-school at GS camps to do things like
wildflowers, orienteering, birds, geology, etc. There is a computer
company that teaches the computer badge. The Limited does a fashion
We've had craft days, and song fests.
We have things like Red Cross babysitting, and mock disasters, and EPY
training. This winter wa our first ever PG-13 training (for girls 13 and
older). Similar to leader train-ins.
We have some events just for fun like an overnight at a
health spa (full use of the pool and exercise equipment along with
volleyball, racketball and basketball), an overnight climbing event at an
indoor climbing wall, an overnight at the skating rink and Discovery Zone.
The zoo, the Clipper's baseball game, Sea World, Wyandot Lake, Cedar Point,
Kings Island, and The Beach all have scout days, many with programs for behind
the scenes. We have an overnighter on the Santa Maria, and you have to
learn to work the ropes. We can go see live outdoor dramas like Tecumseh,
and Blue Jacket with behind the scene tours including makeup and horse
The girls can usher at the OSU football games, help with special olympics,
not to mention our Arts Festival, Kids Fest, Women Artist's Expo, and our
local community festival.
We have the Think First programs, which teach about head and spinal
cord injuries and safety. Our blind and deaf school helps with a program for
council about disibilities. We have Juvenile Justice where the older girls
can learn about our juvenile rights and responsibilities, and our correctional
facilities. Ohio Legislative days teaches the older girls about careers
in law, government, and law enforcement.
We've had locals with interest in minitures and doll houses and
collecting, or knowledgable in local Indian Lore, show their collections
and share their knowledge.
How's that for a start?
Lots of opportunities, the possiblities are endless.
Think of your local resources and use them!
