Troop 3480 is desperately seeking a Cookie Mom, Cookie Dad, Cookie Mom & Dad duo, or Cookie Girls Scout Teen & parent team.

Girl Scout Cookie season begins December 21. Cookie sales subsidize activities and are currently contributing to the Sojourn to Savannah trip. Funds from cookie sales can also pay for camp fees, membership fees, and all the fun adventures and weekend activities girls want to do. In addition, if Troop 3480 doesn’t participate in Cookie Sales, we cannot participate in any other fundraiser.

Troop 3480 needs an adult or a team of adults to supervise the ordering and distribution of cookies and collection of cookie funds. Troop managers as well as past cookie moms will also contribute. The adult(s) in charge of cookies must be a registered Girl Scout volunteer and have a background check prior to start of the Girl Scout Cookie season.

Cadette Corner: Busy Bees

Asalaamu Alaikum

The Cadette Troop has been very busy this year, Alhumdulillah, from completing multiple badges (Cadette programing) to camping (Girl Scout traditions) to team building and just fun. Here are some highlights:

Science of Happiness. Sis Nazaahah Amin-Saahir gave a great yoga class at our lodge camping weekend in January. Sis Nazaahah, owner and operator of Ama Designs, helped our girls use yoga as a way to promote happiness and stay positive through life’s highways and byways.

aMaze Take Action Projects. We have 15 girl that are currently working on their aMaze Journey Take Action projects. A Take Action project — the final step in all Girls Scout journeys — is the sustainable project that a girl or group of girls can do that deals with the subject matter of the Journey. The aMaze journey teaches girls about relationships and how to navigate them.

Breathe Journey. Eleven girls attended the GSCNC Cadette Breathe Journey weekend in March with 150 other girls at Potomac Woods to fulfill requirements of the Breathe Journey. These girls are now eligible to complete the Breathe Journey with a Take Action project focusing on air and the environment.

Media Journey. In April, some Cadettes will be participating in the Media Journey at Gadsby’s Tavern Museum where they will complete the journey that night. For those girls who cannot attend, Sis. Hakeemah Cummings will discuss Muslim Women in media and blogging with the girls.
