Helene travels to the USA to join in their 100 year celebrations

In her first week with us, Helene had great fun at Foxlease (one of Girlguiding UK's training and activity centres), at the Singing Circle.
During her stay, Helene made friends with some Brownies from Dorset.They were about to have a pyjama party and Helene sat on their heads to have her photo taken! What a fabulous weekend.

In her second week, we set off for the United States of America! Helene enjoyed our stay with friends on the beach and had her picture taken by the Myrtle Beach sign. 
She had a good look at what was on offer at a Girl Scout Store in Tampa Florida – and got a photo opportunity in their window.  Everyone there was really nice! Helene now has a GSUSA 100 badge added to her necker.

Week three was Helene’s most exciting week.  We headed to Savannah—the birthplace of the Girl Scouts.  Juliette Low met Agnes Baden Powell during the early years of guiding and decided to take Girl Guides to the USA.  Starting with a group of 12 girls in Savannah, Georgia, in 1912 they soon become Girl Scouts and the rest is history.

We were there in Savannah to join in the Girl Scouts’ Centennial Camporee, to celebrate 100 years of Girl Scouts USA. Helene had her picture taken with friends at Juliette Low’s birthplace and at the first Headquarters—then we went to camp.

Finally to add to all her exciting adventures, she got to go to Radio Station WTKS (the local radio station) and be on the live show with Bill Edwards. What an honour! Here she is below with some Gold Award Girl Scouts being interviewed for Bill’s Show.

All of us together!
Helene has had such an adventure in the last few weeks, and can't wait to find out where she's off to next!
