GSCO announces Mental Health Initiative!

We’ve heard loud and clear from Girl Scouts that they want tools and support to help them take the lead for their own mental wellness, as well as that of their peers and community. To provide this, we have partnered with experts in the field to bring the Sisterhood of Support, a new mental wellness initiative to Colorado.LEARN MORE

Fall 2021 Troop Days at Camp: Sky High Ranch and Tomahawk RanchYou’re invited to visit camp with your troop this fall! At Tomahawk Ranch in Bailey, troops can spend a full day exploring the beautiful camp property and getting to do a ton of fun camp programs! The program day is open to troops of 30 Girl Scouts or less. Tag alongs under parent supervision are welcome too! After your troop reserves and pays for the program day through our property reservation system, you will receive a link to select their full day program choice from tons of fun options like adventure survival, barnyard, camp crafts and more. Cost: $45/ Girl Scout with one free adult per five paying Girl Scouts, includes cold lunch for all guests.

At Sky High Ranch in Woodland Park, troops will choose an activity theme for programing provided by Sky High Ranch staff and also be responsible for some independent program. Troops will be set up in a home base unit for the day where they can do their own activities when not with camp staff and troops will provide their own lunch. Troops can do archery, crafts, team-building, and zip-line for Juniors and older! Base cost for the whole day is $25/troop, plus add on fees per activities selected.

Outdoor Adventure Club

The Outdoor Adventure Club (OAC) is back this fall with lots of awesome programs for our OAC Explorers (6th graders) and OAC Trailblazers (7th – 12th graders). Girls will have get to try out tons of cool programs like team-building challenges at a high ropes course, geocaching, becoming a warrior woman with self-defense and mindfulness programs, snow tubing, ice skating and more. Check all the event descriptions, registration information and other details on the the Outdoor Adventure Club web page.

The New GSCO Activity Guide is here!GSCO offers a wide variety of programming and training for girls and adults throughout the year. This guide will help you and your girl(s) plan out your year with Girl Scouts and, of course, get excited for everything that is to come.

It’s not too late to participate in the Fall Product Program!

Fall Product Program combines educational activities with money-earning opportunities for troops. Fall Product Program is directed toward family and friends and can be done entirely online through the M2 operating system platform. The program enables troops to earn proceeds by selling magazine subscriptions as well as nuts and candy.

Girls participating develop skills in business ethics, financial literacy, and ecommerce. They learn how to set goals, make individual and group decisions, develop sales pitches, manage troop proceeds, and market their sale.

Sound familiar? That’s because the Fall Product Program introduces girls to the same entrepreneurial skills as the Cookie Program and enhances the development of those skills.

Those skills are more important than ever! Setting goals and problem solving go hand-in-hand with teaching girls how to chart a course and adjust to overcome the bumps along the way.

By participating in the Fall Product Program, troops earn 13% of their magazine subscription orders as troop proceeds, plus $1.05 per nut or candy item for nuts sold. Girls also earn rewards based on their participation in the Fall Product Program and have the option of choosing Cookie Credits as rewards too.  Girl who send 18+ emails to family and friends via the M2 platform, and sell $375+ in combined sales (online and/or in-person) during 2021 Fall Product Program, will earn a personalized avatar patch!

There are contests during the program for girls to enter too! Check out our GSCO blog for details.

The Fall Product Program began September 11 and runs through October 25. Girls can start at any time during the program
