Local Girl Scouts hold ice cream social to inform public and recruit

Eau Claire (WQOW) – Local Girls Scouts held an ice cream social on Thursday at Carson Park to recruit new members and inform the public about the organization.

With recent changes by the Boy Scouts of America, organizers wanted people to know their organization is completely different and catered to just girls.¬†Organizers for Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes said they have seen an increase in enrollment but want to make sure they’re promoting as much as they can.

“Working with girl scouts is my why this is why I do what I do, I love seeing the girls advance and become amazing strong women I’ve been around long enough that I’ve seen them from kindergartners to now they are graduating from college,” said Karen Hauck, Northwestern Great Lakes Girl Scouts.

Hauck said at Girl Scouts young girls will learn skill-building, science and participate in outdoor activities like horseback riding, archery and more.

The Eau Claire region is the central hub for the Girl Scouts of Northwestern Great Lakes Region that serves 2,180 girl scouts with about 800 volunteers.
