Girl Scouts Builds Bonds that Transcend Time and Space
"Of the group that came to Alaska, I really only knew one of them... But that didn't matter. They were GROG... We feel like we know each other because we have the same common experience and common values even though we don't know each other. It really makes the 'sister to every Girl Scout' ring true. Eight of them stayed at my house for the weekend, and we had a great time."
CC's two daughters are involved with Girl Scouts of Alaska in Juneau, one as a Senior and one as a Cadette. CC is co-leader of her daughter's Cadette troop. When the troop attended Encampment at Camp Togowoods last summer, CC was struck by "how wonderful and amazing to me how similar Girl Scout camps are... So much fun to remember and tell how awesome my Girl Scout experiences were and still are!"
In addition to travels far afield, the group hosts “mini-GROGs” throughout the year. Recent mini-GROGs include a leaf-raking event, marching together in a Fourth of July parade, and a weekend at Mary’s lake house this summer.
