The Thanks Badge honors an individual whose ongoing commitment, leadership, and service have had an exceptional, measurable impact toward meeting the mission-delivery goals and priorities of the entire council or the entire Girl Scout Movement.
A volunteer saw an opportunity to use Journeys to increase membership in one of the council’s target markets through the camp pathway. She helped the council partner with local companies and groups to provide in-kind, financial, and volunteer support to build a Take-Action Tree House at each camp. She led a task group of girls to design and develop progressive programming, based on girl-led processes and Journey content, which culminated in take-action projects. The three-year project brought in 300 new Girl Scouts, a 5 percent overall increase in camp registrations the following year, 90 new volunteers, and new partnerships with 11 local organizations.
