Activities with Ashley
Join Program Manager Ashley for Activities with Ashley, a weekly broadcast on our Facebook page, Fridays at 3:30 p.m. Activities, designed for girls in grades K-5, will incorporate and explore the four pillars of Girl Scouting: Life Skills, Entrepreneurship, Outdoors, and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math).
Girls can follow along as Ashley teaches a new craft or activity that they can do at home, or replay the videos found here and repeat the activity at their convenience. No reservations necessary. Just follow us on Facebook and join the fun!
