  3. 3. 2007Activity Guide: Happenings in the Heartland Girl Scouts make it happen! Girl Scouts have heart! Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland are gearing up for a new year with extended boundaries and added opportunities. Girl Scouts in Kansas who are looking for a particular kind of adventure, a weekend trip or an opportunity to work on a Girl Scout award have excellent chances at fulfilling their dreams now that they have even more places to go, things to do and people to meet. The Activity Guide for the NEW Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland encompasses programs and activities offered in six regions (formerly known as councils) in 2007 and 2008 within our expanded jurisdiction. Our new regions that cover 80 Kansas counties are: Central Kansas (Salina), Flint Hills (Emporia), Golden Plains (Wichita), Sunflower (Hays), Tumbleweed (Garden City) and Wheatbelt (Hutchinson). We are also pleased to include programs offered by the Girl Scouts of Bluestem Council in Oklahoma, whose Kansas counties will be joining us in 2008. When you browse through the activity guide’s pages, please remember: • Girl Scouts who find a program or activity they wish to participate in must register with the region that is offering that particular program or activity. Reservation information is listed at the beginning of each region’s section. • Troops and individual Girl Scouts now have the opportunity to travel freely within our new jurisdiction. that means no more out-of-council trip forms to fill out! • There is a Council Event Reservation Form in the back of the guide that can be used for all regions. It is suggested that copies be made so there is always a blank form available. Girl Scouts of Bluestem Council has its own reservation form that can be found within its section. • This activity guide is also available online at www.girlscoutskansasheartland.org. So, what are you waiting for? Flip through the pages and start making your plans to take full advantage of the Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland’s extended map of opportunities.
