For those of you who are not looking forward to doing the Journey program, your local Girl Scout Council can help you! In the mail, I recently received a brochure for all of my Council’s programs from October through March. Interestingly, there is a Journey program for the Brownie and Junior levels of scouting. Your girls can spend three afternoons completing their Journey, earning their patches, and for Juniors, earning the ability to go for the Bronze Award.
This is a huge plus for leaders, who do not have to spend their free time redoing the Journey to make it more interesting. It also frees up meeting time for earning badges, doing community service projects, or just doing a fun craft for the sake of doing one!
If this kind of event interest you, promote it with your troop via emails. If enough girls do not register, the program will be cancelled. If too many register, your girls will be locked out of it. Girls who do not attend can do that Journey on their own if they are so inclined.
I am looking into this for my troop!
