Troop 3480 Journey Kudos

Asalaamu Alaikum,

Girls have been working hard on their journeys this year. This is the first year where multiple levels have worked on journeys. To complete a journey girls had to participate in troop meetings and sometimes do work outside of troop meetings. The final part of the journey, the Take Action Project, takes planning and must be completed to receive the journey award.
