Locally, the Girl Scouts of Eastern Pennsylvania (GSEP) is the state’s largest girl-serving organization and remains dedicated to helping girls reach their fullest potential.

GSEP recognizes what is important to girls today, and is committed in the following ways to meeting these needs so that all girls may participate:

  • Flexibility. In today’s world, it’s hard to find a moment of down time. That’s why GSEP offers series and event opportunities where a Scout is not affiliated with a troop  but Tree Plantingcan weave the Girl Scouts into her schedule. Through events and programming, GSEP provides girls the opportunity to create their own scouting experience and build the character and skills necessary to be successful in today’s world. GSEP offers activities for just girls, and others that welcome friends and families, too!

 

GSEP’s priority programs include STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math), Outdoor, Leadership, Environment, and Entrepreneurship. Programs are offered through troop, series, events and travel, providing diverse avenues of exposure to the Girl Scout Leadership Experience. GSEP programming engages girls to achieve short-term and intermediate outcomes including the skills, knowledge, and attitudes they need to succeed in school, the workplace, and life in the 21st Century. Program schedules are available at www.gsep.org.  

  • Environmentalism. GSEP’s mission is to build girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place. That’s why GSEP maintains a commitment to teaching its Scouts about science and environmentalism. Through year-round camping, outdoor programs and summer camp, girls learn about nature and the environment, how to interact in more meaningful ways with their surroundings and ways to participate in healthy physical activities. From the traditional to the whimsical to the extreme, your perfect GSEP camp exists! Visit www.gsep.org for a complete schedule of 2013 summer camps.

THON Weekend at Penn State 2012 Ical Outlook PDF Print E-mail Google map
Written by Karen Walker   


THON raises $10.68 Million FTK! (For The Kids!)

 

 

Those of you who know any of us very well are probably well aware that we are very proud of our Penn State ties.  And you already know

how much we value children and all who helpTHON 2012 our kids become better people.  So you will understand our pride and excitement over the fact that the Penn State Dance Marathon, affectionately known as THON, held February 17-19, 2012, raised a mind-boggling $10.68 MILLION for children with cancer!

 

 

THON has been going on for 40 years at Penn State, and has grown into the largest student-run philanthropy in the world.  All of the money raised goes to The Four Diamonds Fund at Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital.  Penn State students raise money all year long leading up to the 46-hour event, held at the Bryce Jordan Center, which remains at almost-capacity for the entire weekend as people come to witness the amazing spectacle.  All weekend long, pediatric cancer patients and their families join the dancers on the dance floor, providing motivation and entertainment for the crowd.  A highlight of the event each year is “Family Hour,” in which Four Diamonds Families are introduced and speak about how the proceeds from THON have directly benefitted their families.  The children also get to participate in a talent show and a fashion show on the big stage, and get to meet local celebrities like The Nittany Lion,

Penn State football players, coaches, and performers.  THON & The Nittany Lion

 

The event is almost impossible to sum up in just a few paragraphs. It truly has to be seen and felt to understand. But you can be certain that the money raised, and the experience of the event, will go on to have a huge impact on many families and on the students who took part.  This amazing event makes us very proud of Pennsylvania and Penn State University, and deserves to be recognized!
