As part of our long-range property planning process that began in 2012, GSNI identified revitalizing our camp properties as a top priority in the coming years. We want to make sure our facilities, equipment, buildings, and ecosystems are in the best condition we can provide for Girl Scouts using our camps now and in the future.

Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois Emissary, Chloe shares her favorite Girl Scout memory with all of our readers.

 

Being a Girl Scout is one of the greatest things to do. Now that I am a Junior, I have lots of Girl Scout memories...but one that I remember the most is this snowy day. My Girl Scout leaders planned a snow day with Cadettes when I was a Daisy. That's when I found out that all Girl Scouts grow up to be great people, who are kind and nice. The Cadettes helped my Daisy troop go up and down the big snowy hill at Randall Oaks in Dundee. All of the Cadettes looked tired and exhausted but they kept taking us up and down the hill and acted like it was no problem at all. It seemed like the coldest day on earth and they really showed the true meaning of Girl Scouts. They showed us how to be leaders. I still admire them because they are probably in high school now and I bet they are even nicer. I am hoping that one day girls in Daisies will look up to me and want to keep doing Girl Scouts so they can help other people.

 

In Girl Scouts we help others, earn badges and meet new friends along the way. This year in Girl Scouts I cannot wait to earn the "Drawing" and "Simple Meals" badges. I am excited about these badges because they sound fun and earning badges shows that you have done many things in Girl Scouts. I am also looking forward to earning the Bronze Award and doing a service project to help other people.
