Join us at Super Saturday for a day full of Girl Scout training options! Register for any of the following trainings:
Venturing Out - 9:00-10:30 am
Traveling offers vast opportunities for girls to develop leadership skills, whether it be to the neighborhood park, a local museum or a trip cross-country. Learn how to best prepare for the adventures that come with attending events and visiting new places.
Volunteer Toolkit (VTK) - 9:00-10:30 am
As a Girl Scout volunteer, you already know that your girls love Girl Scouts for the friends, the fun, and all the new things they get to try.
But what if there was a way to run your troop or group that saves you time and helps you plan so that you can spend more time with the girls? Meet the Volunteer Toolkit, the web app that makes it easy for you to get the most out of every troop or group meeting.
Join us for this Volunteer Toolkit Kit (VTK) Webinar where we can walk you through the process of planning an amazing year for your troop.
Take Action Projects - 10:45 am - 12:00 pm
Curious about the difference between community service and Take Action projects? During this session, we’ll answer this question, and guide your through how to help girls make a lasting impact on their communities.
Songs and Games - 10:45 am - 12:00 pm
Come and learn new and traditional songs and games that will bring tons of fun to your troop meeting. Did you ever need a quick game in the heat of the moment to help your troop use some extra energy? Are your girls planning on going to camp? Give them an edge by teaching them some of the popular camp songs.
First Aid/CPR/AED Certification - 1:30-5:00 pm $50 charge
American Red Cross CPR and First Aid courses are offered to volunteers through the council at a special discount price. To serve as a "Level 1 First Aider" for a troop, a volunteer must have both certifications. CPR certification is a prerequisite for First Aid certification. The $50 cost for the First Aid/CPR training covers the manual, supplies and certification card. Certification lasts for 2 years. Please dress comfortably as skills are performed on the floor.
Girl Scout Ceremonies and Traditions - 1:30-2:45 pm
Through this session, we’ll talk about how ceremonies and traditions are what connect us as Girl Scouts and make everything a little more special. You’ll learn what Investiture and Rededication, Court of Awards, and Bridging Ceremonies are, and how to facilitate each one. We’ll also share a few of our favorite Girl Scout traditions.
Troop Money Management - 3:00-4:30 pm
This session is designed to give volunteers a clear understanding of the process of troop money management. Topics included are developing an annual plan and coordinating troop budget with girls, and revisiting and adjusting that plan and budget throughout the year. We will also spend some time focusing specifically on Awards and Bridging Ceremonies, as well as, creative ways to present girl awards and recognize the contributions of troop volunteers.
Crafts and SWAPs - 3:00-4:30 pm
Girl Scouting is designed to help girls grow into leaders of Courage, Confidence, and Character. Part of that process includes fun activities such as crafts made from recyclable items and creating great SWAPS. SWAPs are pins that Girl Scouts make to trade with each other to promote friendship.
