Socially Distanced Programming Formats Keep Girl Scouts Active

Virtual meetings and “stay at home” programming have allowed Girl Scouts to stay connected and engaged throughout the pandemic. Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts has organized virtual sing-a-longs, meet-ups, “Camp Outside the Box” summer programming, and new badges for socially distanced activities.
     They continue to offer the “Girl Scouts at Home” program, offering self-guided activities in STEM, the Arts, Outdoors, and Life Skills open to Girl Scouts and non-Girl Scouts alike. The local Nashaway Unit, which includes the towns of Ayer, Dunstable, Groton, and Shirley, has created a series of Nashaway@home activities and challenges. Starting with Memorial Day, each centers on a summer theme that promotes fun, community outreach, and learning. Girl Scout Delilah of Groton Troop 69090 won Nashaway’s recent Memorial Day Challenge by creating a poster to honor fallen service members and by baking a Memorial Day-themed cake!
     More information on “Girl Scouts at Home” activities, available to all, can be found online at www.GSEMA. org. Email nashaway.gsema@gmail. com to learn more about joining a local Girl Scout troop.
