  •  Use any number of colors you wish, but use only solid colors. Do not blend one color gradually into another color. 
  • Metallic colors are fine!
  • Simpler is usually better.
  • Design should be inside a perfect square. The border of the square can be a different color.
  • Design must include these 2 phrases somehow: 1)  I Tried a Virtual Event!  and 2) Cache Girl Scouts 2020-2021
  • If you include the Girl Scout trefoil shape, it must be colored in Girl Scout green and no other color. You cannot put words or letters inside or on top of the trefoil shape.
  • Do not use the Girl Scout profiles symbol that has the three faces.
 The deadline for submission is September 15th. Submit designs by email to cachegirlscout@gmail.com

A winner will be chosen by the Service Unit Leadership Team and announced by September 22nd.

Centennial Day Camp - Online!

 



A service unit south of us has created a really great online Day Camp, and you should check it out!  This is likely your only opportunity for a Day Camp this summer, as we were unable to figure out how to get one together ourselves before the end of the summer.

Visit this link and get all the details: https://sites.google.com/view/suncrest-day-camp/home

If you decide to register, shoot an email to cachegirlscout (at) gmail.com. If enough local scouts register, the Leadership Team will help work out a supply pickup in Cache Valley so that you don't have to drive to Ogden or pay for shipping to get your supplies.

Find Cookies

Our Cookie Sale was disrupted this year due to COVID-19, leaving girls in Cache and Rich counties with cookies in inventory. You can still support girls in Utah by donating cookies to our Hometown Heroes - first responders, healthcare workers, and those working tirelessly in our community. Help girls build important skills in leadership,  entrepreneurship, STEM, and outdoors, and support scholarships for girls.

You can also still order cookies online for yourself! They will be shipped straight from the factory.

Attend a great musical with Cache Girl Scouts! "Inspired by the twisted genius of Roald Dahl, the Tony Award-winning Roald Dahl's Matilda The Musical is the captivating masterpiece from the Royal Shakespeare Company that revels in the anarchy of childhood, the power of imagination and the inspiring story of a girl who dreams of a better life.
Matilda is a little girl with astonishing wit, intelligence, and psychokinetic powers. She's unloved by her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher, the highly loveable Miss Honey. Over the course of her first term at school, Matilda and Miss Honey have a profound effect on each other's lives, as Miss Honey begins not only to recognize but also appreciate Matilda's extraordinary personality. Matilda's school life isn't completely smooth sailing, however – the school's mean headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, hates children and just loves thinking up new punishments for those who don't abide by her rules. But Matilda has courage and cleverness in equal amounts, and could be the school pupils' saving grace!
Packed with high-energy dance numbers, catchy songs and an unforgettable star turn for a young actress, Matilda is a joyous girl power romp. Children and adults alike will be thrilled and delighted by the story of the special little girl with an extraordinary imagination." --quoted from https://www.mtishows.com/roald-dahls-matilda-the-musical
