The 2013 Girl Scout Cookie Program runs from January 17 - March 3

This year’s theme is “What Can a Girl Do?” and continues the tradition of providing girls with an avenue to develop financial literacy and important leadership skills while earning proceeds for troop and council activities. And for the first time since 1999, Girl Scouts cookie boxes will feature brand new designs in order to showcase the significance of the program on girls’ lives! The iconic packages will showcase the five skills that the Girl Scout Cookie Program teaches girls: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics. Plus, we're also debuting a brand new cookie flavor, Mango Crèmes. Find them along with the other classics- Thin Mints, Caramel deLites, Peanut Butter Patties, Peanut Butter Sandwiches, Shortbreads, Thanks-A-Lot, and Lemonades- at a booth near you!

Outdoor Programming Master Plan – Board Approval

Dear Colleagues,

As you know, GSEP is focused on investing in the future of girls by building exceptional outdoor programming at our camp properties.  The Property Committee, with the assistance of Domokur Architects, devoted over twelve months of study to the development of the Master Plan to achieve this goal. 

Master Plans were developed for Camp Mosey Wood, Camp Laughing Waters, Camp Wood Haven and Shelly Ridge. The Board unanimously approved the Master Plan Vision and commitment to outdoor programming as presented on September 27, 2012.

With the Boards approval of the Master Plan Vision, the board reaffirms its earlier decision that Camp Hidden Falls, Camp Tweedale, and Camp Tohikanee shall be divested from camp use. They shall be divested pursuant to the following schedule:

1. Divest from camp use at Camp Hidden Falls on September 30, 2012

2. Close Camp Tweedale’s Resident Camp at the end of the 2013 camping season (August 31, 2013)

3. Divest from camp use both Camp Tohikanee and Camp Tweedale no later than September 30, 2015 

For more information and details about the Master Plan please visit www.gsep.org or view the following videos and presentation from the August 21, 2012 Town Hall meeting:  Video Part 1, Video Part 2 and PowerPoint presentation.

Sincerely,

Natalye Paquin
