REMEMBERING SANDY HOOK
As we approach the anniversary of the tragedy in Sandy Hook we ask that, as Girl Scouts, we join others in the state in respecting the wishes of the Newtown community, and consider performing an act of kindness or volunteering in our communities in memory of the lives that were lost.
Girl Scouts of Connecticut also continues the Sandy Hook Girl Scout Campership Fund in memory of our eight Girl Scout Daisies. This fund will help girls who may not otherwise be able to afford summer camp to attend and will be designated for programs based on activities the girls loved. Please visit the individual giving page to donate. Please be sure to note your gift is for the Sandy Hook Girl Scout Campership Fund.
WE NEED YOUR PROPERTY INPUT
We need your input! GSOFCT is conducting a survey as part of our Long Range Property Plan in order to gather feedback from our members. Included are questions about your experiences with our camps and service centers or what programming and features you are looking for in our properties - even if you haven’t visited them.
The survey will only take a few minutes of your time! Click here to get started.
