Keep the fun, friends, laughter, and learning going all summer long! Summer Funshine is our council's annual summertime program that provides an opportunity for your troop to do things you didn’t have the time or resources for during the school year. It's also an excellent opportunity to introduce bridging Girl Scouts to the rest of the girls in your troop.
To earn the Summer Funshine patch or year bar, troops must complete the following requirements:
- Participate in one activity per month during June, July, and
August. Your activities must include a:
- Community service project (e.g. host a school supply drive, start a recycling project, or participate in the GSSEF Summer Infant Supply Drive).
- Family activity (e.g. year-end picnic, attend Welaka family day on June 19, or Movie Magic on August 6, or any other council-sponsored family activity together).
- Troop choice activity (e.g. work towards a new badge, start a Journey, or participate in a GSSEF-sponsored virtual program together).
- It is not
necessary for every girl in the troop to participate in each
activity, but each girl must participate in at least one activity to
be eligible for the patch/year bar.
Patches and year bars can be purchased at either GSSEF Retail Store locations by submitting the form found on the bottom of the 2021 Summer Funshine Flyer.
