Thank you Girl Scouts of Colorado supporters
Thank you for another wonderful year and for making an investment in girls. Thank you for believing that girls today are the leaders of tomorrow. Together, we can make the world a better place.
Daisy Program Continues to Bloom
Each spring, as the days warm up and the flowers begin to bloom hundreds of Girl Scout Daisies from all over the state visit the Denver Botanic Gardens to complete their Daisy Flower Garden Journey or earn their Daisy petals. On the morning of the program, girls line up in their first Girl Scout uniform eagerly awaiting the entrance to open and their adventure to begin.
Girl Scouts of Colorado teams up with the education department at the Gardens, the GSCO Global Action Team, and dozens of older Girl Scout volunteers to run ten different activity stations for the girls to visit. Activities help girls show their courage and strength through practicing yoga, use resources wisely while making a bag out of a recycled Girl Scout cookie box, plant flowers to make the world a better place, and so much more.
As one Daisy looked at the Daisy chain she added onto she said, “Wow! Look at how many other Girl Scouts were here!” Many girls learn for the first time about the global sisterhood of Girl Scouts when they make a mural about Girl Guides in Australia with the Global Action Committee. Many parents new to the world of Girl Scouts are thrilled to see older girls taking the lead to make the day exciting and enlightening for the next generation of Girl Scouts. GSCO is proud to bring the youngest Girl Scouts together for this exciting program over the last ten plus years and looks forward to continuing the tradition each spring.
|Girl Scouts of Colorado partners with hundreds of organizations throughout the state to produce Council-sponsored and partner-led events. Corporations, local businesses and nonprofit organizations support Girl Scout programming with financial and in kind donations, collaborative curriculum development, program delivery and employee engagement. Statewide partners also provide opportunities for Girl Scouts to attend cultural, sporting, outdoor, and community events at free or reduced admission, often with badge earning activities and special patches.|
