GIRL SCOUTS NEWS RELEASE
Girl Scouts of New Mexico Trails is offering a special membership program for incoming kindergarten and first grade girls to introduce them to the Girl Scout Program during the summer months. Girls who register as new Daisy Girl Scouts between May and July will receive self-guided badge programs for three months and an extended membership year. The limited time registration fee of $50 will provide membership through September 2023.
“This is an ideal time to for young girls to join Girl Scouts,” said Melissa Bruney, Chief Membership Officer for Girl Scouts of New Mexico Trails. “As new kindergarteners and first graders, they have started settling into their school routines, making friends, and expanding their knowledge. Girl Scouts builds on this foundation and gives them additional skills and new friendships that will last a lifetime.”
As part of this membership program, newly registered Daisy Girl Scouts will receive badge programs in the mail for three months, allowing them to earn their first Girl Scout Badges. These badges include Design with Nature, where girls learn about nature and wildlife, and the Toy Business Design, which gives girls the opportunity to learn business and creative skills. In the fall, these new Girl Scouts will be placed in a troop where they can continue to build their curiosity, kindness and can-do spirit while making new friends.
