- Explore our Council’s Own Patches and patches as summer fun options.
- Participate in the Get Outdoors Challenge and get your girls outside.
part in a Community Service Project – part of the Girl Scout
experience is giving back. Help girls consider taking part in a
community service project this summer. Either locally or nationally,
there are a plethora of options available. Here are just a few:
- Ronald McDonald House Patch Program – Girls feel connected to their communities by learning about the Ronald McDonald House and contributing to the House through tab collection and service projects.
- Arizona Humane Society Service Project – Girls can join us in this Council-wide service project by making homemade pet supplies that can be donated to the Arizona Humane Society.
- Have you seen our national mission to protect the planet from the effects of climate change? This is a great opportunity to talk to your girls about how they can make a difference in protecting our planet. If your girls are interested, show them how they can be a part of the Girl Scout Tree Promise - to plant, protect and honor 5 million trees by 2026! Make sure to consult the Safety Activity Checkpoints when planning this project!
