Helping Hands for Animal Friends
Our new and updated Animal badges give every Girl Scout a chance to learn more about the animals they love most! With these activities, Girl Scouts will learn a wide variety of useful skills. Daisies will get to tap into their observation skills by studying the animals in their community. Juniors will discover unique habitats and how to care for the places animals call home. Cadettes can explore the deep connection between humans and animals, as well as how to advocate for every species. Get started by downloading the Animal activities and unlock new badges today!

Melissa and Allison stepped right into the SU Lead positions to keep Service Unit 106 intact—an expanse that covers the western portion of Calaveras County, stretching to the remote portion of Alpine County. By attending Mission Delivery meetings, along with other trainings and workshops, Melissa and Allison are able to keep up with all of the activities, events, and opportunities GSHCC has to offer.

Philanthropy Spotlight

Crowd of auction bidders
Nearly 200 guests turned out to the beautiful and rustic Old Sugar Mill on Friday, October 20, 2023 to Gather and Give for Girl Scouts. Guests of the inaugural fundraising event celebrated the essence of Girl Scouting, while raising funds to ensure more girls are afforded the opportunity to participate in the Girl Scout Leadership Experience. Presented by UC Davis/UC Davis Health, Gather and Give for Girl Scouts generated over $200,000. We are grateful for the incredible show of support for our first-ever fundraising event and can't wait to celebrate again next year!
Thank you to the participants of the
