By Kate Marcussen, Community Education Coordinator
In just the last four months, since January 1st, 829 scouts, siblings and adults have joined us at PAWS for a Scout Program. From Daisies to Cadettes, to Tigers to Bears, scouts have been lining up to get a taste of what it is like to help animals.
We could tell you exactly what they’re up to while at PAWS, but we’ll let them tell you for themselves what they thought!
“It could have just been longer! She really enjoyed it! It wasn’t just info about specific animals, but also helped her think more about conservation.” – Girl Scout Troop Leader
“Empowering educational aspect. Just right for the girls to understand and provoke more thoughtful reflection on their own later.” – Stephanie, Scout Troop Leader
“This is so much fun! This is even way more fun than movie night!” – Daisy Girl Scout
[When asked “Please tell us your scouts’ favorite thing about the program”] “How much the girls enjoyed it!” – Alex, Girl Scout Troop Leader
“The girls loved making a special connection to a favorite animal…it was fun to see!” Girl Scout Troop Parent
Activities moved at an age appropriate pace. Interactive.” – Carissa, Scout Troop Leader
[When asked “One way we could improve this program”] “How is that possible? PERFECT!” – Cat, Girl Scout Troop Leader
We can’t thank the scouts and adults enough who have participated in our programs, as we appreciate their support in helping to make the world a better place for animals.
