Wait there's more - we have a new Troop Resource Room at Camp Oakwood Knoll. Check it out when you come for the arts giveaway. The room is full of sports and outdoor equipment, arts and crafts supplies and tons more that you can use with your Girl Scouts when you're at the camp.Troop Resources are coming soon at all camps.

Note: We need some help getting organized for the giveaways. Can you help sort and set-up? Contact Courtney (608.237.1157) if you can help or have questions about the arts and crafts giveaway day.

I Can't Wait...
Did you see this? America's First Lady released a Public Service Announcement this week supporting Girl Scouts and calling for adults to join the Movement! It's interesting to know that every single First Lady since Edith Wilson in 1917 has served as Girl Scouting's Honorary National President!

Michelle Obama's PSA is part of a national campaign Girl Scouts is rolling out called I Can't Wait...we're sharing with the world the fun and excitement of being a Girl Scout. We can't wait to meet all the new girls and adults who join us this fall! If you know someone who wants to join,
share this link with them - it has a fun girl video!
