To kick things off, the Dole Institute joined the fun in attending this year’s community Girl Scout event: Girl Fest. With over 40 community partners in attendance and over 600 Girl Scouts and their families stopping by the Dole Institute’s booth, you could feel the girl power at Camp Tongawood in Tonganoxie, Kansas on Saturday, October 8, 2022.

The festivities continued throughout the day as Girl Scouts tried their hand at trivia, flag-folding, assembling a giant American flag puzzle, coloring the Dole Institute’s very own world’s largest American flag stained glass window, and more!

The fun didn’t end with Girl Fest. The following week, the Dole Institute hosted programming for Brownies to earn their Democracy badges. From hands-on activities and projects, Girl Scouts attending these events learn about how our democracy works. For example, the three branches of government, the three levels of government, and how to engage with our elected officials. In learning how to write a letter to our elected representatives, Girl Scouts can even write to Frances the First Cat of Kansas!

Each Girl Scout event is scaffolded to meet the badge requirements for Daisies, Brownies, or Juniors. Led by Public Education Manager, Julie Clover, all Girl Scouts should “be prepared” for a great time!
