A message from Girl Scouts of Hawai`i CEO, Shari Chang

Aloha - We can’t thank you enough for being a source of support for your girls! Girl Scout troop leaders and parents can play an important role in helping reduce anxiety and restore normalcy in the lives of children. We’ve compiled a few resources to help you, your child, and your troop adjust to the “new normal” of home and school life routines.

In addition, we will be rolling out online badge and journey programs through Virtual Girl Scouts. A fun new way to continue to participate in Girl Scouts from home. Explore outside, experiment with coding, create beautiful art, earn badges and journeys! Enjoy staff-led videos that walk you through activities. New programs will be added every Monday and Thursday for you to enjoy. Activities that are connected with a badge or fun patch will be available for purchase from our online Girl Scout Shop.

And please share your own videos or pictures so we can share with our Girl Scout Ohana

Virtual Troop Meetings will also be coming soon led by staff, volunteers and Teen Mentors to keep girls and their families engaged. In the meantime join in the fun below:
