GIRLS LOVING LIFE – YWCA HANOVER

Girls in grades 2-8 participate in activities, friendship, and fun.
Girls in grades 9-12 participate as mentors, role models, and youth leaders.

Girls Loving Life focuses on five tenets to build self-esteem, encourage kindness, and help girls develop resiliency, grit, and compassion:

Love your body: living your best healthy life
Love your soul: valuing and accepting yourself
Love others: being kind, accepting, and contributing to the community
Love to learn and grow: taking risks, facing challenges, and being a lifelong learner
Love life: celebrating and enjoying each day

Girls Loving Life is supported by the Allstate Foundation, in partnership with the UTZ Women’s Mentoring Group

“Teaching the girls of today to be the leaders of tomorrow.”

This is a free program but space is limited.  If full, please check back for upcoming sessions.

CUB SCOUTS, BSA SCOUTS & VENTURING – BATTLEFIELD DISTRICT, NEW BIRTH OF FREEDOM COUNCIL, BSA

Cub Scout Packs, grade K-5

Cub Scouting is fun for the whole family.  In Scouting, boys and girls start with their best right now selves and grow into their very best future selves. It’s fun, hands-on learning and achievement that puts kids in the middle of the action and prepares them for today – and for life.

BSA Scouts, youth 11-17

Scouts BSA is the traditional Scouting experience for youth in the fifth grade through high school. Service, community engagement and leadership development become increasingly important parts of the program as youth lead their own activities and work their way toward earning Scouting’s highest rank, Eagle Scout. NOTE: Beginning in February 2019, this program is transitioning to include both young men and young women.

Venturing – Co-ed 14-20

Explore passions, make friends, discover the world. You’re always looking for an adventure. Rappelling a cliff. Perfecting your shot. Designing a robot. Kayaking into the sunset. Exploring your faith. Volunteering at an animal shelter. The choice is yours!  Venturing is youth-led and youth-inspired. You’ll acquire life skills and gain experiences while having a blast.

SUMMER CAMPS are available for Cubs and BSA Scouts.  Financial assistance available.

For more information contact Christopher Lontz, Director, Battlefield District, New Birth of Freedom Council, BSA
