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!

Troop Meeting This Friday, Jan 30


The next regularly scheduled troop meeting will be this Friday, January 30, 6 – 7:30PM, inshaAllah.


  • Will begin work on the Zinni petal which focuses on being considerate and caring. Daisies should bring a new or gently used toy to donate to a local charity. Girls will be learning to think of others through words and actions.


  • Brownies will be doing YOGA with Sister Alia Alim. Please have your Brownie wear comfortable clothing for stretching.
  • Brownies will begin working on the My Promise, My Faith Pin. They will be finding values in the Girl Scout Promise that occur in Islam. They will learn that Girl Scouting and their faith have a lot in common. Here are the first few steps Brownies should complete by the January 30 troop meeting:
    1. Assist your Brownie selecting a line from the Girl Scout Law, then find an ayat from the Quran, story, song or poem from Islam with the same ideas.
    2. Have her talk with her family or friends about what that line in the Girl Scout Law and the ayat, story, song or poem from Islam have in common.
    3. She can ask a woman in her own faith how she tries to use that line of the law in her life.
    4. Bring the ayat, story, song or poem that she chose and what she learned to the troop meeting on January 30.

    If you have any questions, please contact Sister Tamika Jones at tjones122288 [at] gmail [dot] com
