Good Turn Challenge During Girl Scout Week

Did you know that the Girl Scout slogan is “Do a good turn daily?”

For Girl Scout Week, consider challenging the scouts in your troop to do a good turn daily. 

We know it is hard to add yet one thing to our busy schedules, so the Good Turns can be big or small; no cost, low cost or a little more.  They can be anonymous or not. 

Coffee for a teacher, holding a door open for someone, pick up trash in the neighborhood, let someone go before you in line, hand out words of encouragement to friends or strangers, bring flowers to the Redwoods, donations to Goodwill, care packages for a homeless shelter.  You get the idea.

Here’s how it could work:

1.    Let the girls know the challenge and let them decide on the number of Good Turns to do over the week.

2.    Each girl keeps track of her Good Turns and reports back to the troop at the next meeting.

Ways for the girls to track their Good Turns:

¨     Make a list.

¨     Make a paper chain and add a link every time you do a Good Turn.

¨     Make a bracelet and put a bead on the bracelet with each Good Turn.

¨     Make knots in a chord for each Good Turn.

Great compilation of camping information-essential diagrams.  You may find some fun and useful.
