2023 Thinking Day

 


Pima Neighborhood

Thinking Day 2023

WHAT: Each year on February 22, World Thinking Day, girls honor their sister Girl Guides and Girl Scouts by taking time to give thanks for their international friendships and remember that Girl Scouts of the USA is part of a global community—one of nearly 150 countries that are members of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS). 

WHEN & WHERE: February 25th, 1:00-3:00+ pm
Scottsdale Ranch Park, Ramada 10

COST: $5 per girl and includes a patch and passport.  No charge for leaders. Troops will be issued a refund of up to $3 per girl who attending after the event for those who attend. Last day to register is February 6, 2023.  The neighborhood subsidizes this event. 
Payment can be made via troop check.

ATTENDANCE LIMITATIONS:  Please bring only enough adults to meet ratio guidelines. Tagalongs cannot be accommodated at this event. As always, for the safety of the girls, no unregistered adults should attend this or any other Girl Scout event.  

Slots will be filled and countries assigned on a first-come, first-paid basis and then registration will be closed.  Please submit your check made out to Pima Neighborhood with the registration form below. It is really important that you actually fill in the form.  I lose track of verbal "can I have this country?" inquiries.

DIRECTIONS: Each troop needs to pick a country and prepare (and decorate) a booth that includes information, a food, a craft, a SWAP, and a physical activity (game or song, generally) related to their country.  Girls will be issued passports to travel from booth to booth, so a stamp or sticker is needed to have to mark those passports.  Your country choice will be confirmed as soon as you turn in your registration.
