Girl Scout Troop 10143 is having its first meeting at 6 p.m. Monday, Sept. 10, at St. Peter Lutheran Church, 1226 SW 13th Street in Lincoln City.
Scouts will team up in an all-girl environment to choose the activities that interest them most through the Girl Scout Leadership Experience.
Earning badges, selling cookies, exploring science, being outdoors and community service projects are how a girl can learn to lead, be successful and adventure safely.
Scouts will practice skill building with four key areas of focus:
- Science, technology, engineering and math (STEM)
- Outdoors experience
- Life skills
According to the Girl Scouts of Oregon & Southwest Washington website:
“Being a Girl Scout helps girls thrive in five key ways:”
• Develops a strong sense of self
• Displays positive values
• Seeks challenges and learns from setbacks
• Forms and maintains healthy relationships
• Learns to identify and solve problems in her community
To bring the Girl Scout Leadership Experience to life, activities are led by girls themselves, feature cooperative learning and highlight learning by doing. Girls come up with their own ideas, build teams and experience the joy of making a positive impact. At Girl Scouts, she will:
Find out who she is, what she cares about, and what her talents are
Collaborate with other people, both locally and globally, to learn from others and expand her horizons
Do something to make the world a better place.
