Girl Scouts Go NUTS for Nutshell!
Add a description

This fall's 'in a nutshell...' was an amazing success. Check this out: troop profits were up nearly 50% from the previous program! And even more good news - 32% more Girl Scouts participated in the October sale. That means more Badgerland troops and individual Girl Scouts will have the funds to attend exciting camps, programs and events this year. Be looking for the new PathFinder program guide in your mailbox in just a few weeks. We can't wait to see what Badgerland programs you'll choose to spend your "nutshell' earnings on! Maybe Camporee in the spring?!


Here's another terrific outcome from 'nutshell': Project Thank You donations skyrocketed this fall. Due to your hard work the men and women of the Wisconsin National Guard will be receiving loads of Girl Scout nuts, sweets and magazines. Thank you for making this program work for everyone!
