Southern Essex County Girl Scouts will hold registration Monday, Sept. 19, and Thursday, Sept. 22, at 6 p.m. at Ticonderoga Elementary School.
“Girls have told us how hard it is to fit Girl Scouting into their schedule once they’re in middle and high school,” said Debbie Barber, scout community chairwoman. “Even girls who are younger have other activities like dance class or T-ball that can make scheduling traditional troop meetings difficult.
“So, Girl Scouts of the USA has introduced different Pathways: — Troop, Camp, Event, Series, Travel and Virtual, in which girls can join or participate in Girl Scouts,” she said. “It is your choice and you can choose more than one Pathway. There’s bound to be one Pathway, or many, that will fit your schedule.”
The Troop Pathway offers the same group of girls the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities, usually over a span of 9-12 months.
The Camp Pathway features day, weekend and resident experiences that introduce and explore the out-of-doors.
The Event Pathway features events that are stand alone program offerings, such as a career event for Seniors and Ambassadors, or a leadership conference for teen-age Girl Scouts.
The Series pathway offerings are a sequence of linked, cumulative program sessions that relate to a specific themes or purpose with the same group of girls participating in all sessions for a short duration.
The Travel Pathway offers girls leadership opportunities and cross-culture understanding through local, regional, national and international travel.
The Virtual Pathway is an online Girl Scout community that provides girls with the opportunity to participate in Girl Scouting without regard to geographic location.
