(Grades 2 – 3)
Girl Scout Brownies try lots of new things! When you have learned enough about subjects like dance, cooking, or camping, you get a badge to put on your sash or vest. This shows the world that you are an expert in that subject! As a Brownie you will explore your neighborhood, your city and maybe even your state, through day trips and overnight outings. Friendship and fun activities designed for girls just your age begin at your Girl Scout Brownie meeting, where you work together as a group to reach goals like selling a lot of Girl Scout Cookies to fund a trip or planning a holiday dinner for a needy family.
- Ride ‘Em Cowgirl!
Let your inner cowgirl ride! Get to know the horses at a local stable while you groom, clean, and care for them. Then saddle up and ride around the arena. YEEHAW!
- Robo Engineers
Explore simple machines, engineering and programming by building and programming your own robotic creation using the LEGO™ WeDo System.
- Reptiles Around the World
Shake the hand of a bearded dragon from Australia and meet other unusual reptiles that come from all over the world. If you want, you can touch and hold the reptiles. Also, you will learn about animals native to Illinois and see places where they live on a short hike through the prairie.
- Get Your Paint On
Put brush to canvas and learn to create beautiful works of art. Still life is one of the most common forms of painting and many artists start their careers using this. Girls will have the opportunity to create their own piece of art, painting with acrylics on canvas board. You’ll also learn about composition and balance, highlights and shadows and how to mix warm and cool colors!

So you think you can sing? Have you ever wondered what it takes to create your own record album? Head out to a real recording studio and record your favorite camp songs! You will even get your own CD to bring back home to enjoy again and again!
