GIRL SCOUTS OF CONNECTICUT RING IN THE NEW YEAR WITH LEADERSHIP TRAINING

(Hartford, Conn. December 30, 2008) - Two hundred and five girls from all corners of the state will arrive at the University of Hartford's Grey Conference Center during their winter vacation to "Set Sail for Adventure!"  Girl Scouts of Connecticut will host its fourth annual "It's a Girl Thing" on December 30.  The ocean-themed leadership and training event is for girls ages 11-17.  Sessions on trip and party planning, CPR training, diversity training, kickboxing, and college and job interview preparation will give girls the opportunity to develop a variety of skills: from leading others, to cultivating a strong sense of self, to enhancing their future.  There also will be a Gold Award workshop for those who intend to earn the highest award attainable in Girl Scouting.  The day-long event will host over 20 different sessions geared towards leadership training for girls. 

Special guests this year will be six Girl Scouts from the Nacogdoches, Texas area.  While looking for fun things to do during their vacation, they found Girl Scouts of Connecticut's "It's a Girl Thing" and decided to make the trip.  The girls are planning their entire vacation around the event, including camping along the way at other Girl Scout properties.  In fact, they will earn their Winter Badge while staying in the Nutmeg State as they camp out at Camp Laurel, a Girl Scouts of Connecticut program facility in Lebanon.
