Galaxy Gazers

Galaxy Gazers crest

Galaxy Gazers is a new resource developed by the BC Girl Guides Program Committee for Sparks and Embers to use this spring. This collection of engaging activities encourages youth members to learn, explore, and play with everything related to space. Sparks and Embers will enjoy hands-on exploration, fun art projects, craft activities, and star gazing. They will dive into this easy-to-use and fun resource over two to three regular meetings or a day camp.

Kit sales are now closed. Kits were mailed out April 7, 2024. Thank you for taking part in BC Program's Galaxy Gazer kits.

Cookie Palooza Aprons!

The BC Program team wants to help you with your cookie sales! What better way to grab people's attention than a special cookie apron that you can wear at cookie booths or during your door-to-door cookie campaign? The apron is a perfect way to represent Girl Guides when the weather is a little cooler and your uniform isn't visible. The aprons will fit Sparks to adults and cost $11 each.

Units in the Lower Mainland will be given locations for pick-up. There is a limited supply, so order now from the BC Program Committee Specialty Order form before they are all gone! To support the spring cookie campaign, we anticipate that orders being delivered by mail will be mailed out no later than February 28.

Tree-mendous Trees

Discover BC's forests this May. Tree-mendous Trees of BC is a resource developed by the BC Program Committee for all branch levels to use in their unit programming. This theme encourages units to get active and visible in the community, as well as familiar in nature - identifying trees, learning what roles they play in our ecosystem, and maybe even try their hand at making paper!

This theme combines several program areas, including physical activity, STEM, environmental awareness, exploring local community, and more. Our committee has worked together to design an easy-to-use enrichment resource for Guiders that can be easily applied to unit meetings (or day camps) with content that is relevant across all units in BC covering a subject that many may not have tackled before.


Sparks: Let's Get Sporty

Get your Sparks outdoors and active in April, May or June! Your unit can enjoy favourite childhood activities while increasing your level of fitness with the Let's Get Sporty program-in-a-box. From March 9-17, units can order kits of sporty supplies to develop motor skills through individual and team fun – with activity instructions to use the gear – for unit meetings, unit camps or district/area Spark events.

The cost is $6 per Spark, including a crest for each participant, and kits will be sold in multiples of five. Orders will be on a first-come, first-served basis and will be available as of April 10 for local area pickup by Lower Mainland units, or mailed to those in other BC locations.
