GSLSPW is a nation-wide event where Girl Scouts all over the US are visiting their local state parks on the same weekend. GSHCC partners with select state parks to host unique Girl Scout opportunities, such as interpretive hikes, kayaking, bird watching, and more. Troops and families can also visit a local park on their own. So save the date and find a State Park near you.
The Girl Scout Expo is the perfect event to help both girls and their adults learn more about being a Girl Scout. Kick-off the new member year by enjoying a fun day of hands-on activities that will help your troop plan their year. This event hosts several community partner booths that will help your Girl Scout discover her passions for the Outdoors, STEM, Entrepreneurship, and Life Skills.
The Annual Meeting generally occurs the first Saturday in February. This event is an opportunity to look back at the membership year through annual financial information, highlights from the GSHCC Board of Directors, adult volunteer recognitions, and celebrate our council's accomplishments.
The event is free and open to all members of GSHCC. Only members of the Representative Assembly have the ability to vote.
Every April, Girl Scouts and their adults can hone their outdoor and camping skills, earn outdoor badges, and learn about nature & conservation efforts. It is a great introduction for participants who want to camp with their girls and enjoy several outdoor activities by registering for a trail that may include: Horseback riding, paddling, target sports, and natural sciences.
Capitol Bridging is an inspiring event in May where Girl Scouts can reflect on their past year and bridge to the next level in Girl Scouting. All ages of Girl Scouts will get to celebrate their achievements together and invite their family and friends to join in the festivities. Girl Scouts will connect with their sister Girl Scouts by walking across the Tower Bridge together and taking a moment to look back on their year as a Girl Scout and set goals for their future.
Day at the Capitol is the kick-off to a summer of leadership and growth! Cadettes, Seniors and Ambassador Girl Scouts will spend the day networking with professional women in their community and hear from speakers focused on advocacy and public policy in California. Throughout the event, they will collaborate with their fellow Girl Scouts to create change in their community. Girls will learn valuable leadership skills, civic engagement and be inspired to put their passion towards earning their Highest Awards!
