Reviewing all the opportunities contained within this guide is a
quick way for Girl Scouts to get involved in amazing local events
and programs by herself, with her troop or with her family!
Get information on new activities and also register online for
these opportunities at girlscoutsgcnwi.org. The registration

which enables girls, families and troops to search for events and
workshops by age level, by date or by subject. Users must create
a login and password the first time they access it. Girls must
be registered members of Girl Scouts in order to participate
in programs. We also welcome girls who have never been Girl

membership fee when you sign up for these activities.
Forms and Resources
Many council forms are available online. To ensure use of the
most recent version of each form, download forms as needed
and discard previous versions. Most council forms online are
PDF (portable document format) files. PDF forms are “readonly” and must be opened with Adobe Acrobat Reader (a free
plug-in) and printed.
Download Adobe Acrobat Reader at:

In addition, forms are available in the Girl Scout Gathering Places located in Chicago, Homewood, Joliet, Lisle, Merrillville and
Vernon Hills or through your service team.
Program Resources
In addition to the opportunities found in this guide, Girl
Scouts and volunteers have a wealth of resources available
to help them make the most of their Girl Scout experience.
In addition to reviewing what is available on our website, we
recomend connecting with other Girl Scout volunteers, visiting any Girl Scout Gathering Place or Council Shop or shop for
resources online at your own leisure 24 hours a day/7 days a
week at shopgirlscouts.org.

There is no limit to the number of programs
for which you can register. Simply complete
a separate registration form for each program. Individual girls or troops of girls
are welcome as each program indicates. Payments can be made by check or

Program registration is live as soon as

Snacks
Due to allergies, outside snacks are not permitted at council programs. No food will be
supplied by the council unless specifically
stated in the program description.
Once registration begins, programs will be
filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
Registration will continue until the
program has reached the maximum
number allowed or the registration
deadline which is two weeks prior to
the program date. Programs may be
cancelled if the stated minimum is not met.
All programs are subject to change or
cancellation.
Program Fees
All program fees must be paid in full with the
registration. Fees are deposited when the
registration is processed. Do not postdate
checks. There will be a $25 service charge for
checks returned due to insufficient funds.
Fees listed are per girl. Events/workshops
listed are generally for girl members only. A
limited number of programs are also available
for adult participation. Adults must pay when
participating as noted.
Unless specified as a family or parent/girl
program, use the recommended ratios for
the number of adults per girls as listed in the
Safety Activity Checkpoints found on our
website atgirlscoutsgcnwi.org/forms.
Normal fee charges help cover supplies
and/or facilitator’s fees. Actual costs are
offset by council funding such as fall product
and Girl Scout Cookie program profit, “Family
Partnership” contributions, grants and other
funder allocations.
Siblings
Siblings may not attend programs unless they
are fully registered Girl Scouts who meet the
age level recommendations for the program
or if the program is specified as a family
event.
Awards
Insignia such as petals and badges, journey
awards and keepsakes, patches and charms
are not included in the program fees unless
indicated. Insignia may be purchased at any
Council Shop. Requirements are achieved by
the interpretation of the facilitator.
Cancellations and Refunds
If the council cancels an activity or an event
for any reason, troops or families will receive
a full refund. Council events and activities
run rain or shine unless there are safety
concerns which prompt the council to issue
a cancellation notice. Participants choosing
not to attend will not be issued a refund.
Refunds will be made as follows:
• No refunds issued on pre-purchased tickets.
• Refund requests must be made in writing prior to registration deadline.
• No refunds will be made for registrants not attending the program.
• Girl and adult membership registration is non-refundable.
Girl-Adult Ratio
Adult volunteers are needed at some programs to maintain the appropriate girl/adult
ratio. If space is limited, once the girl/adult
ratio has been met, no additional adult registrations will be accepted.
Male Volunteers
Men are encouraged and welcome to
participate in Girl Scouts as volunteers or
event chaperones. Separate accommodations will be made as appropriate in accordance to Safety Activity Checkpoints which
specifically prohibits men from sleeping
in the same space as girl members. Men
may participate in overnights only if separate sleeping quarters and bathrooms are
available for their use. For more information
about overnight regulations for male volunteers, call 630-544-5900, or e-mail:

Girl Scouts goto2040
Imagine today’s Girl Scout Daisy in the year 2040. She will be 32 years old, contributing to society as
an adult in the workforce, voting in her community, and continuing to make the world a better place.
Our 17-year-old Girl Scout Ambassador will be 45 in the year 2040. The world is theirs to build and to
embrace for a lifetime. To prepare girls for the future, we have created Girl Scouts goto2040, a set
of resources for Troop Leaders and Girl Scout Daisies through Ambassadors to use as the context
of your Girl Scout Leadership Experience in your community.
Girl Scouts goto2040 provides a new community context to the Girl Scout Leadership Experience.
By helping a girl to understand the needs of her community, girls think in new ways about their badge
earning, Take Action Projects and Bronze, Silver and Gold Award Projects with an appreciation for
the project’s contribution to the region as a whole as well as impacting her own community.
Supported in part by The Searle Funds of The Chicago Community Trust, Girl Scouts goto2040
has as its basis the GOTO2040 Plan presented by the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning
combined with the Quality of Life Indicators for Northwest Indiana to create a vision for Girl Scouts
in the geography of Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana.
Girl Scouts goto2040 is aligned with the Journey series as well as The Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting.
Go to girlscoutsgcnwi.org/girlscoutsgoto2040 to access resources including the GOTO2040
Short Plan, Quality of Life Indicators for Northwest Indiana, badge alignment opportunities, community tool kit for working with your local government, age chart for girls to learn how old they will be in
the year 2040, and a fun cootie catcher activity to inspire new ideas!
The four sections of the plan include: livable communities, human capital, efficient governance
and regional mobility, all of which inspire volunteers and girls alike to look at their communities and
region in a new way, with a new lens on the future.
Here is a glimpse into the plan:
LIVABLE COMMUNITIES
Though opinions differ on what makes a community appealing, livable
communities tend to share some common traits. They are healthy, safe
and walkable. They offer choices for timely transportation to schools,
jobs, services, and basic needs. They are more cost-effective for individuals and local governments. They make the region more economically
competitive.
Recommendations
•
Achieve Greater Livability through Land Use and Housing
•
Manage and Conserve Water and Energy Resources
•
Expand and Improve Parks and Open Space
•
Promote Sustainable Local Food
4
HUMAN CAPITAL
The quality of our region’s labor force is crucial for sustaining economic
prosperity. Increasingly, job growth relies on the availability of well-educated, skilled workers for knowledge-based industries. We can gain a significant advantage by ensuring that businesses and residents here have the
skills necessary to compete with other global economic centers.
Providing equitable opportunities to gain those critical skills is among our
region’s most complicated challenges. Disparities in educational attainment, health, and other measures — often based on income levels, race, or ethnicity — put the entire
region’s economy at risk.
Recommendations
•
Improve Education and Workforce Development
•
Support Economic Innovation
EFFICIENT GOVERNANCE
Efficient and effective decision making by government is necessary to
meet the goals of GO TO 2040. Now more than ever, taxpayers expect efficiency and transparency when governments invest their limited resources.
To maximize the benefits that residents of our seven counties see from
these public investments, government agencies across our region need to
coordinate decisions and investments strategically.
Better access to information will help us reach these goals by putting essential data at the fingertips of not only our local decision makers but also the residents they serve.
Recommendations
•
Reform State and Local Tax Policy
•
Improve Access to Information
•
Pursue Coordinated Investments
REGIONAL MOBILITY
A modern transportation system is indispensable for our region’s future
prosperity. To sustain our economy and quality of life, residents must be able
to travel quickly and easily around our region so they can choose from a wide
variety of jobs and communities in which to live. Businesses must be able to
count on the timely delivery of their goods. Historically, our region’s transportation system has been a foundation of our success. But the system’s
infrastructure was built decades ago, with inadequate ongoing investment
to keep it up to date. While transportation is still a significant strength of this
region, we must modernize our system to compete with other U.S. and global
economic centers.
Recommendations
•
Invest Strategically in Transportation
•
Increase Commitment to Public Transit
•
Create a More Efficient Freight System
