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.


We are not done yet!

Girl Scout Cookie Season Begins December 19!

girlScoutCookieZoneGirl Scout trips, badges, ceremonies, activities, and programs cost money and selling cookies is every troop’s most important fundraiser. Money from our annual cookie sales helps off-set the cost of these activities.

Did you know our troop receives $0.60 per box of cookies sold? That means every 100 boxes sold raises $60. Last year only 39 of our 110 PGMA Girl Scouts sold cookies. This year we need every girl to sell at least 10 boxes of cookies, help sell at our cookie booth, or both. Each level (Daisies, Brownies, Juniors, Cadettes, Seniors and Ambassadors) will have at least one booth sale. We cannot do this without parent volunteers.

Parents, we need you to:

  • Attend the Cookie Information Meeting on Friday, December 19, at 6:15PM
  • Help your daughter(s) sell cookies
  • Pick up your daughter(s)’ cookie order
  • Turn in all money for cookies on time
  • Optional – volunteer to chaperone girls at cookie booths
  • Optional – help pick up our troop’s cookie order on February 19, 2015

Girls Scouts, we need you to:

  • Set a goal for how many cookies you want to sell
  • Sell cookies to your family, friends, teachers, neighbors, parent’s coworkers, etc.
  • Remind your parents to turn in your cookie orders & cookie payments on time
  • Optional – volunteer to sell at a troop cookie booth

More details will be given at the Cookie Information Meeting, Friday, December 19, 6:15PM, inshaAllah.
