We love getting to see all of the great things our Girl Scouts are doing in their local communities! In August, our girls were busy making an impact through an international service trip, a mental health-focused Silver Award project, and a back to school night recruitment event.

York County Girl Scouts travel to Bermuda to complete a service project and gain new cultural experiences.

Girl Scouts from Troop 20078 in York County participated in a cruise to Bermuda with 115 other Girl Scouts and families. The girls met Girl Guides from Bermuda and participated in a beach clean-up service project and engaged in a cultural exchange ceremony. The trip also included a visit to the Bermuda history museum and a dolphin experience.

Girl Scouts address middle school students’ mental health for Silver Award project.

Girl Scouts Abigail and Lacey from Troop 40429 in Centre County focused on student mental health at Park Forest Middle School for their Silver Award project. The girls worked with the school to curate a collection of mental health books for the school library and created a calming room for students in the counseling office.

Dauphin County troop spreads the word about Girl Scouts at a back to school night event.

Girl Scouts from Troop 10010 in Dauphin County hosted a table at Upper Dauphin Elementary’s back to school night event. The troop got many new girls to sign up for Girl Scouts and shared information about GSHPA’s upcoming Girl Fest event on Oct. 15 at Camp Small Valley. The troop also bought Pennsylvania Farm Show milkshakes to support the school’s PTO.
