New Annual Program Book Is Online Only This Year


Blog_2020_APB-2020

We love sharing the new Annual Program Book with you each year! It’s filled with events, outdoor experiences, award workshops, badge programs, trips, and so much more! And we know you love looking through it, marking the programs you don’t want to miss. But this year, the world and the program book are different!

As we prepared the 2020-2021 Annual Program Book for publication, there were many uncertainties related to COVID-19 and how the pandemic may impact the coming year’s programs. We made the difficult but responsible decision to only publish an online version this year. Going exclusively digital allows us to carefully monitor the current health situation as we near each program date and make any changes needed to keep everyone safe. And, it allows us to use our resources wisely!

It does change how you will interact with the book. You can read the digital version, and you can download a PDF and print some or all of the book. You also will need to download your Girl Passport and/or your Co-Leader Passport, so you can collect stamps and earn rewards!

Even though you won’t receive a printed copy in the mail, we hope you will “flip” through the online Annual Program Book to see all the wonderful programs planned for you. We’ve even created a Scavenger Hunt Challenge to encourage you to carefully look through the book – and earn an exclusive patch in the process! But hurry, this challenge ends September 30, 2020! (Limit one patch per girl, while supplies last.)
