The patches just arrived, and we are so excited to see you all in less than a month! Our presenters are getting ready, and our shop is stocking up on fun, new items for this year. We are excited to announce that we will have white pillowcases available in the shop to tie dye—they feature an OWOF design in glow in the dark ink!
If you have not signed up already-there is still space available for Friday Night ($65) at both camps, and Saturday Only($45) stays! Girls can use Cookie Dough and Adventure Points (see registration packet for details).
Final Confirmations will be sent out later this month-watch for more information on packing lists and other offers at OWOF!

For those of you still thinking about coming to this great annual event - there are limited spaces available yet for overnight accommodations (please call ahead to ensure there will be space for your entire group), and some Saturday-only spaces available.
This is an awesome event for the whole troop, or just a day for you and your girl! Saturday Only stays include four sessions, lunch and two snacks for $45.
Also, if you live near Nisswa and have a golf cart that you would be able to lend us for the weekend (transporting supplies and older volunteers across the camp), please call Amanda Morrow (320-252-2952). We would very much appreciate it and have cookies on hand to show our thanks!

2,063 girls and 627 adults participated in the Spring Jump Start Renewal Campaign. Girls participating earned their 2014-15 Jump Start patch for renewing their membership early by June 15. 177 Troop Leaders earned a Girl Scout shop gift certificate for a free Girl Scout polo shirt for registering their troop and submitting their updated troop roster.
Missed the Jump Start deadline for your troop?

The summer is almost half-way over, and we have been very busy with three trips so far, and one left! If you have been thinking about going on a trip with your girls, email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) for details and sign up today! This summer, we have trips planned to Duluth, New York, Chicago, and Salt Lake City in the fall for the National Convention. Traveling with Girl Scouts is a great way to see the world! Remember that at Our World, Our Family participants who register for a GSMWLP trip will receive a reduced deposit, and all girls will be asked to vote on the 2018 council trips.
Brainerd just wrapped up their annual Day Camp—thanks to every one who helped make this great tradition such a success! And a special thank you to the Day Camp Directors, you do so much and the girls always have a wonderful time!
Have a safe and fun 4th of July!!

Product Sales staff recently road tripped to Interbake Foods (ABC Bakers) in North Sioux City, SD to continue planning our next Cookie Sale Program. While there, we were able to see how our cookies are made. Interbake has 500 employees, and runs three shifts, six days a week. One third of what they make there is Girl Scout cookies. It’s no wonder we could smell Thin Mints when we walked in the building!
Summer is when we do most of our planning for the upcoming year for both the Fall and Cookie Sale programs. At this time we are beginning to contact our past Community Product Sales Managers (CPSM) and Cupboard Managers to see if they are willing to assist us this coming year with either the Fall or Cookie Sales or both. Thank you to all who have worked with us in the past – we hope you will continue to help girls with their upcoming product sales programs! So far we know of several openings around the council for these volunteer positions. If this is something you are interested in, please contact your Product Sales and Finance Specialist for more information.
Fall Product Sale Program dates have been set and there are some new changes to the program which we think will be helpful to troops.
