Bluebonnet Circle Girl Scouts - June Newsletter

Summer Fun and Planning

Bluebonnet Circle Girl Scouts are taking awesome trips this summer. We'll keep you up to date on their adventures through the July and August newsletters. Submit your troop's activities to bluebonnetcirclegs@gmail.com.


The summer is also a great time to start planning for the next school year. Get your girls registered ASAP and drop in to visit the Bluebonnet Circle Forum for updates on Service Unit events and opportunities (or "follow" different categories of posts to receive notifications for the different forums). The Service Unit started planning the 2024-25 year at our June volunteer meeting. Check out the meeting notes to see the awesome new supports for adult volunteers and older girls, the event list and be in the know about the budget.


Speaking of new supports for adults, we're all volunteers here and we know the importance of supporting each other with information, opportunities and grace. The GSCTX Volunteer Enrichment Conference can refresh your energy, connect you with other leaders and provide you new ideas and information as a leader. To support your participation, the service unit will reimburse the first 10 leaders who submit their $35 registration receipt! Registration ends June 30, 2024, so act fast!


An Unforgettable Overnight at the San Antonio Zoo

Girl Scout Brownie Troop 41127 enjoyed an amazing overnight campout at the San Antonio Zoo! As the sun set, they joined zoo experts for a private tour, discovering which animals were settling down for the night and which ones were just waking up. These Brownie girls were thrilled to see nocturnal creatures and learn about their nighttime habits! (scroll those pictures!)


They explored the zoo on a guided night hike, met animal ambassadors up close in the educational center, and participated in engaging zoo-themed activities.


The night ended by sleeping in the Hippos enclosure! In the morning, we woke up to a delicious taco breakfast, ready to explore the zoo on our own for the rest of the day. This overnight adventure was a memorable and educational experience for everyone involved! Thank you to all the mommas there who helped make this happen!


A Weekend in Ft. Worth

Troop 41395's 14 Juniors spent four days and three nights exploring Ft. Worth thanks to their hard work selling cookies and Fall product this year. We explored the Ft. Worth Zoo and Stockyards, nearly lost our voices at Medieval Times, contemplated art and nature at the Water Gardens, visited the Science Museum & Planetarium and the Ft. Worth Nature Center & Preserve where we saw bison and a live snake exhibit. The trip was bookended with stops at Buc-ee's on the way up and Waco Mammoth Monument on the way home. We nearly melted in the sweltering heat, but it was an absolute blast! Memories for a lifetime!




Amazon Fullfillment Center Tour

In February our Troop 1183 visited the Amazon Fulfillment Center in San Marcos, Texas. I loved touring the center and learning how about so many automated systems and robots all around the HUGE center. They had a tour that was fully accessible and everyone was very kind. But I do wish I could have seen what everyone else did. I like that it was accessible, but just know that if you can't walk the stairs you are by yourself on a completely different tour. Still cool, but I wish they had a more inclusive option.
