  • 3. Summer2008fullofscrapbook-worthymoments Welcome to the Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland’s first-ever Summer Program Guide. During the council realignment process, we promised you expanded and enhanced summer experiences throughout the state, and we are delivering on those promises in a big way. This comprehensive guide gives details about the best camps and programs we have to offer girls in the 80 counties that now make up the Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland. This summer, we invite our 16,000 Girl Scouts to do what they do best – explore and learn. Since every program and camp on every page is open to every Girl Scout, this is the perfect time for girls of all ages to go to a new place or try a new activity. Our goal is to create a summer’s worth of memories and personal growth experiences that will not only fill thousands of scrapbooks but further strengthen the bond between Girl Scouts in all parts of Kansas. It will be an unforgettable Girl Scout summer. Sincerely, Shelly Chenoweth CEO

Emotional intelligence has much to do with how children grow and succeed – self-awareness, self-control, Our program puts girls on the path to success by encouraging them to take part in empathy, the ability to wait, the ability to listen, cooperate, share and work well activities centered around Girl Scouts’ three keys to leadership: Discover, Connect, with others. Take Action.  Children can find adult friends at camp who model perseverance, listening, teamwork and appreciation of differences. This motivates them to set new and high standards for their own behavior. When young people feel appreciated and valued by these friends, they are more sure of their ability to live happily away from home. As they “Discover,” girls: Understand their values and their world; are clear about Can I Bring a Friend? YES! We welcome new girls into our summer programs and have made an effort to who they are and what they stand for; take part in new streamline the process for them to register fast and easy.
