October GSHPA Programs

GSHPA has a full calendar for you this month!  We have two amazing programs for girls and volunteers highlighted in this post and you can visit our online calendar for more programs offered all month.

Troop Adventure Days

Girl Scouts in the Heart of Pennsylvania is proud to offer not one, but two Troop Adventure Days for Daisies, Brownies, and Juniors! Hosted on two of our beautiful camp properties, Camp Small Valley in Dauphin County and Camp Happy Valley in Adams County.

Girl Scouts learn about the world around them and the connection between nature and STEM in the outdoors.

October’s Troop Adventure Days will feature a variety of fun outdoor activities: Girl Scouts will have the opportunity to learn about the science behind trees and forests on a STEM nature hike, create nature-themed wind chimes at an outdoor crafts station, practice their skills at the archery range, and much more! Visit our Event Calendar to register.

Troops have the opportunity to stay the night at camp the evening before and or after the TAD event through the property reservation.  Camp Small Valley and Camp Happy Valley both have a wonderful variety of rental options.  If you are interested please contact GSHPA Member Services at memberservice@gshpa.org.

New GS Year- New GS Badge

This fall GSHPA Program Team is going to hosting programs that allow girls to experience the NEW Digital Leadership badge sponsored by Instagram. The badge allows girls to explore what digital leadership is, how to become one, and safety first thinking skills for the internet. Girls will be part of challenges that practice being online in a safe, positive way that focuses on wellbeing and time spent.

Girl Scouts take the lead on Digital Leadership Badges online.

Every day people around the world are using the internet and technology to complete simple to complex things. The list is always growing of new ways for each girl. Our team built games and brand new activities to explore technology components that girls will be using. Many of our Girl Souts are already tech savvy and this badge will help them focus their activity and learn about their digital footprint and being a leader online.

This October we start with Daisy, Brownie, Juniors, and Cadettes. Each level meeting a different evening session during the month. Visit our Event Calendar to register.
