Awesome Opportunities is an exciting new venture that allows us to provide the best GSLE experience possible! Awesome Opportunities are programs that are developed and offered to girls in a more spontaneous fashion. We will continue to provide program offerings through Spark , but Awesome Opportunities allows us to offer programming on a rolling basis. These programs will be advertised through the Program Alert (sign up to receive here), our website, and Social Media (like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter). Registration will still be available through the online registration system, and all deadlines will be consistent with Spark programs.
If you have questions about Awesome Opportunities or would like to make a suggestion for a program, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Girl Scout Flag Ceremony
A flag ceremony is a way of showing love and respect for one's country. Flag ceremonies may be used for opening or closing meetings, bridging ceremonies, or retiring a worn flag. Ceremonies may take place in meeting rooms, in outdoor settings, in large auditoriums, on stage, even on horseback. All flag ceremonies share one thing in common—respect for the flag.

The Berks County Museum Patrol
The Berks County Museum Patrol is an interest patrol that has something for girls of all ages! The patrol is made up of girls who are in 7th through 12th grade (Cadette through Ambassador Girl Scouts). Girls in the patrol gain leadership experience while they work with younger girls by leading activities, singing songs, and helping to plan the overnight. Our patrol members also have the opportunity to make new friends from around the council and have a ton of fun! The patrol runs overnight programs for girls who are Daisy, Brownie and Junior Girl Scouts, where they can have fun, make cool projects, and learn something new, all while sleeping over in a museum. If you're interested in learning more about us volunteering, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
