After disembarking, they set out for the World Centers. The scouts were on a journey that they perhaps may take in the years to come. In visiting these lands, the Juniors were not only thinking of their WAGGGS (World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts) sisters, but earning the “On My Way” badge as well.
CULTURED SCOUTS…Scotch Plains-Fanwood Junior Girl Scouts recently celebrated Thinking Day, an international day of friendship and world peace. It is traditionally observed on February 22, the joint birthday of Lord and Lady Baden Powell, the founders of the scouting movement. The girls took an imaginary trip to several different countries to learn about other cultures. They are pictured above at the Candlelight Ceremony which concluded the event.
In Sangam (India), the girls tasted Indian food and saw artwork and played a game. At Our Cabana (Mexico), they had a spicy snack, did Mexican bark painting, saw lots of artwork, as well as pinatas, and received a God’s Eye SWAP.
At Pax Lodge (London), the girls got a taste of British tea time with scones. They learned about the theater and royalty and received “tea bag” SWAPS.
At Our Chalet (Switzerland), the girls tasted fondue and Swiss chocolates. They learned of the many sports programs offered there and received Swiss Flag SWAPS. There were also stations for the Juniors to create their own postcards and do activities from the Junior Handbook.
As the gathering drew to a close, the Juliet Low Friendship Fund was collected from the Junior Troops. A beautiful Candlelight Friendship Circle was formed while the girls sang “We Are the World.”
