Girl Scout Cadette, Spring Mermaids
On September 23, 2017, the annual GS Fest was held at the University of South Florida’s (USF) campus and let me say – what an experience! There were so many interesting booths representing a variety of organizations, such as Busch Gardens, the Tampa Lightning, and Girl Scout camps.
A few raffles were held and this upcoming year’s cookie sales incentives were revealed to the masses. Score! But if you’re just thinking that this event was for little girls, you are mistaken! There was so much to do for even the eldest of scouts in USF’s Coca-ColaÔ Lounge, where scouts grades eight through twelve could participate in fun engineering and coding activities as well as learn about all the incredible programs Girl Scouts has to offer, like Camp CEO and GS Destinations.
