The Boys & Girls Club of Santa Clara Valley is pleased to welcome two Girl Scout troops to the Club.

Sheila Tate, CEO for Boys & Girls Club of Santa Clara Valley has been meeting with Sally Knight, Girl Scouts of California’s Central Coast, with the goal of bringing troop meetings to the Club so that female Club members would be able to participate. The meetings are scheduled to begin Monday, June 21st at the Fillmore Clubhouse and Monday, Tuesday, July 6th at the Santa Paula Clubhouse. In Fillmore, the girls will meet every Monday for 8 weeks, from 1:00 to 2:30 pm.  In Santa Paula the troop will meet on Tuesdays 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm. Both troops will work on earning ‘badges’ during their meetings.

Guided by the Girl Scout Law: “I will do my best to be honest and fair, friendly and helpful, considerate and caring, courageous and strong, and responsible for what I say and do, and to respect myself and others, respect authority, use resources wisely, make the world a better place, and be a sister to every Girl Scout,” the Club’s girls will learn skills and tools to help them grow into responsible caring adults. Funding for the Girl Scout program is being provided by Girl Scouts of California’s Central Coast.

The Boys & Girls Club of Santa Clara Valley is open for the 2010 Summer Season and accepts children ages 5 to 18 yrs.  The annual membership is $25 per child per calendar year, allowing members’ access to the Club and its programs from 12:00 noon to 6:00 pm Monday thru Friday.
