Girls Scouts At Home

Ongoing

Girl Scouts at Home | Our friends at Girl Scouts USA developed a new virtual resource - Girl Scouts at Home - that provides their participants with the opportunity to continue to connect and learn during this challenging time of social distancing. They have been kind enough to offer these resources to our Bigs and Littles.  Many matches are connecting via video conferencing platform, so they can use Girl Scouts USA’s online portal for free access to a wide variety of activities - from STEM experiments and cyber scavenger hunts to drawing lessons and building projects – each broken down by age groups from kindergarten through 12th grade. All Bigs and Littles can complete these activities by simply having the Big share their screen so the match can watch the instructional video together and by using items that the Bigs and Littles likely have at home.
