Ignite Her Flame
GSNENY is excited to announce our third annual virtual fundraising event on Tuesday, March 7th, 2023!
Ignite Her Flame Makes Camp and Outdoor Programs Possible for our Girls!
Last year, sponsors and supporters raised over $25,000 to support outdoor programs.
This year, we hope to surpass that $25,000, ensuring that outdoor programs and camps are available to Girl Scouts across our Council.
Your gifts to Ignite Her Flame will build girls' outdoor skills, engage girls in space exploration, help girls explore ecology and human's environmental impact, and support year-round outdoor adventures for girls. Your generous support will make it possible for girls to learn skills in boating, fire-building, outdoor cooking, astronomy, animal tracking, environmental research, ice-fishing, and so much more!
Ignite Her Flame will kick off our Girl Scout Week celebrations this year and marks our 111-year anniversary and our Girl Scout Birthday on March 12th. Girls, volunteers, and camp staff will share their Girl Scout stories about how impactful their camp and outdoor experiences have been on their lives during this event.
The virtual event is free to attend! Register here to join us via Zoom on March 7th, at 7:00 pm.
