The Warwick Girl Scouts have been very busy this spring with activities ranging from community service to fun activities.
In April, many of the scouts participated in Warwick’s Operation Clean Sweep, helping to keep their community beautiful. The girls handed out trash bags, gloves and doughnuts, while others went to work picking up trash.
Girl Scout Ambassador Julia Vargas has been hard at work on a project to earn her Gold Award, which is the highest honor a Girl Scout can receive. In June, she ran a Mental Health awareness event for Girl Scouts. Dr. Tamara Scott was on site to discuss mental health issues that affect teens. Julia’s goal is to make coping kits for teens in hospitals, to support them throughout the duration of their stay.
Daisies, Brownies and Junior Girl Scouts had a great time at the Build-a-Bear store at the Galleria at Crystal Run in Middletown. They each built their own bear and filled them with love. The bears even got their very own Girl Scout uniforms.
The Warwick Girl Scouts participated in World Thinking Day, an annual occurrence where the girls reflect on what it means to make an impact on the world and to celebrate being part of the global sisterhood of Girl Scouts and Girl Guides. A Gold Award event, Nature Awareness, took place at the Albert Wisner Library. In addition, a variety of other activities were enjoyed by the Girl Scouts of Warwick, as each troop planed its own adventures.
