Dear troop volunteers,
We're giving you and your girls options ... outside options! We've added outside activities to ten badges in the Volunteer Toolkit. Research shows nature-based activities challenge girls and support their social development by encouraging them to become more self-aware and to cooperate, communicate, and solve problems more effectively.
New Get Girls Outside! Badge Activity Options:
- 2 Daisy Petals: Lupe, Clover
- 4 Brownie Badges: First Aid, Snacks, Making Games, Senses
- 4 Junior Badges: First Aid, Simple Meals, Staying Fit, Detective
Please click on the new Get Girls Outside! banner at the top of the Year Plan and Meeting Plan tabs on the VTK-----both tabs are filled with details on the new Get Girls Outside! features and how to access them.
Nature-based activities often place girls in new physical, psychological, and social situations that motivate curiosity and foster a sense of discovery, so Get Girls Outside!
