Our Top Program Picks – September 2015

GSGWM Top Picks ImageThe new school year is about to start up, and with it we’ve got TONS of great programs for girls of all ages to enjoy. Picking our top programs this month was tough! Sign up with your Troops as they start up again for the year, or enjoy one of these offerings solo – either way, you’re in for a great time! These top picks for next month still have openings, so don’t forget to register now before the price increases or they sell out.

App Builder

Who’s it for: Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors who want to make their own mobile app.

Why we love it: We’ve all gotten caught up in Candy Crush, Instagram, or Yik Yak – like it or not, cell phones are here to stay, and this program gives girls a chance to get in on the tech boom from the ground up and explore a growing career field.

Details: Runs Saturday, September 19 and Saturday, September 26 (two fun sessions!), 10AM-3:30PM in Salem, NH. Cost is $5 per girl. Register here.

Camp Cooking

Who’s it for: Girls in Juniors and up who want to try daring outdoor cooking methods.

Why we love it: This program gives girls a chance to get outdoors and try something new at the same time. They’ll explore tons of different cooking methods, try new things, and gain confidence in their camping skills (and we’ll have tasty snacks to try!)

Details: Runs Saturday, September 26, 10AM-2PM at Whispering Pines in Meredith, NH. Cost is $15 per girl. Register here.

Source to Sea Cleanup

Who’s it for: Girls of all ages and their families who want to help keep our community waterways clean.

Why we love it: Girl Scouts are always looking for ways to make the world a better place, and keeping trash out of our rivers is a great way to make a big impact. This program is open to everyone and available up and down the Connecticut River, so it’s a great option for folks all across our council.

Details: Runs Saturday, September 26 at a variety of locations. Contact the Source to Sea Cleanup team at cleanup@ctriver.org to sign up and find out more. This program is free!

Sculptural Visions

Who’s it for: This family event is open to visitors of all ages, and there’s also a girls only event for Juniors and Cadettes that starts in October.

Why we love it: Saint-Gaudens is a local art mecca and a beautiful National Historic Site, and this program gives girls a first-hand look at all forms of sculpture including clay, wood, stone, metal, wire, and paper. There will also be a live bronze casting demonstration at 1 and 3PM. Perfect for artists and people just looking for a fun and interesting weekend activity!

Details: Runs Saturday, September 26, 11AM-4:30PM in Cornish, NH. This event is free! Register here.

What’s in the Trash: Screenwriter Badge

Who’s it for: Cadettes who dream of seeing their work on the big screen (or who just want a fun afternoon with YA author Jen Malone).

Why we love it: Where else can you earn a badge, meet and learn from a successful author (and even score a signed copy of her book), and try your hand at writing all in one day? We’re also offering two other programs with Jen (another session of “What’s in the Trash” in April and another session before this one for Juniors) so all our budding authors out there should definitely keep an eye out in our program guide.

Details: Runs Sunday, September 27, 3PM-5PM in Bedford, NH. Cost is $18 per girl (includes badge and singed book). Register here.
