Introducing the Summer 2009 Journeys
Between Earth and Sky
* Girl Scout Daisies join their flower friends for a cross-country road trip in their special flower-powered car!
* As they travel the country living the values of the Girl Scout Law, the flowers explore the natural world around them, learning what's local and why that's important.
* Along the way, the flower friends (and the girls!) sample the sights, and the wisdom of women working to protect Planet Earth.
* Daisies earn their Blue Bucket, Firefly, and Clover (uses resources wisely!) awards as they experience what's great about their own region and learn to use their own special skills to help people and Planet Earth.
This journey presents Daisies the opportunity to earn three awards. Girls consider their feelings and skills and then take into account the feelings and skills of those around them. The girls then move on to engage their larger community and then they move out into their community to "do."
Although there's no set way to present it, you might spark the excitement of this award series by presenting the Between Earth and Sky background patch to all the Daisies at their first session. Or choose a way that works for the group.
The Blue Bucket Award
* Daisy Journey 2 Award Patch SetGirls tell one another about their feelings and the feelings of those around them.

The Firefly Award

* Steps to the award are built into the suggested activities in the Sample Sessions.
