101 Things To Do This Summer

101 Things To Do This Summer for Girl Scouts

Keep yourself busy, and earn a Community Service patch while helping GSCCS.
Together we can help more girls enjoy the fun and friendship of Girl Scouting!

Girls, please pick 2 – 3 items that you have never done from each of the first four sections, for a total of 10 items. Then have your family sponsor you for $2 or more per item completed. For the last section (Recycling and Donating) we would like everyone to participate.

If you donate $20, you get a Community Service patch.
If you donate $30, you get a Community Service patch as well as the FROGS Supporter patch.
If you donate $40, you get both patches AND a GSCCS 100th Anniversary mug!

$20 will pay for 1 girl membership for a girl who could not afford to become a Girl Scout
$30 will help pay for a girl’s uniform and program supplies
$40 will help pay for an outing or adventure activity for a girl
$100 will help pay for a day at camp for 4 girls
