Program areas at Girl Scouts of Minnesota and Wisconsin Lakes and Pines Council

The Girl scout cookie and fall product sales program is the largest girl-led business in the country and generates immeasurable benefits for girls, their communities, and their councils. Girls set goals to support their chosen activities for the year, to fund community service and leadership projects, to attend summer camp, to travel to destinations near and far and to provide events for girls in their community. Participating in the Girl scout cookie sale program helps girls develop essential skills: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics. Girls, troops, and our Council receive awesome benefits. The troop receives money for activities and girls receive recognition prizes and vouchers to use at camp, for program attendance, or in the shop. The Council proceeds help train volunteers, maintain camp properties, and keep program costs affordable.
Throughout the year, Girl Scouts Lakes & Pines provided both in-person and virtual programming to meet the needs of our girls and their families through both summer camps and year-round opportunities. This year, we were able to bring back our in-person partner and travel programs. In just a few short months this spring, we were able to serve 542 girls and 247 adults through our partner programs including sleep under the sea, overnight with the otters, and art explorer. Through our trips to Tennessee and new york, we provided travel opportunities to 97 participants. This summer, we hosted both troop and resident summer camp programming to just over 1,200 girls. Additionally, we facilitated Council events to 806 girls and adults during our 2022 membership year. In continuing to regrow our numbers from covid for our two largest events, kaleidoscope and our world our family, we reached a total of 125 and 512 participants respectively. Other highlights included mentoring Girl Scouts through our outreach program, Girl Scouts in action, providing activities to troops across the Council with programs on the go, and supporting girls as they earned their bronze, silver, and gold awards.
Council sponsored camp and event programming focuses on the five outcomes of the Girl scout leadership experience including sense of self, positive values, challenge seeking, community problem solving, and healthy relationships. In addition to these outcomes, girls in our programs connect with their peers, develop conflict-resulution skills, learn how to advocate for themselves, and feel empowered to make a difference in their communities.
