Discoveree - Looking for a Site

The Discoveree Committee is working towards returning to normal just like the rest of our community.  With that in mind, we are actively looking for a site for Discoveree 2022.  Current regulations created because of Covid are limiting our ability to use our usual school facilities.  We are casting our net wide looking for new opportunities.  Ideally we need a site with the following features:
  • At least one very large space, e.g. gym or multi use room for check in, opening. (maybe two, if possible)
  • 20 classrooms or more for workshops
  • Large space for workshop leader check in and hospitality
  • Parking for ~200
  • Convenient outdoor space for camping training and outdoor cooking
  • Junior high, high school, or college level. [Elementary school furniture is just too small.]
  • Easy access to freeway
  • Public transit nearby is desirable
We are willing to take a 'less-than-perfect' location or to move to a different location in the general San Francisco Bay Area region if it allows us to get a site.  Have an idea we can pursue?  Please let us know!

Leader Feature: gsVolunteers

Every month we will have ideas, tips, and resources for you to use during troop meetings or as part of your Girl Scout year. 

gsVolunteers is a network created by volunteers, for volunteers.  It recognizes that not everyone is (or wants to be) on Facebook or other social media platforms but we still like sharing resources.  Like Discoveree, gsVolunteers recognizes that other volunteers are one of our best resources for tips, tricks, help and ideas as we work to support our girls during these challenging times.

Want to learn more?  Consider joining them for their Summer Volunteer Meetup: "Join fellow Girl Scout volunteers across our entire Northern California Council for an evening of meaningful conversation and connection around 'becoming' your best self.  Let's share and celebrate our individual and shared journeys."

Workshop Feature: STEM Resources

Every month we feature some aspect of our Discoveree Workshops.

Girl Scouts continues to add many STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) programs but often leaders feel ill-equipped to lead their girls through these journeys and badges.  Discoveree can help!  Between council staff and our volunteers, we have offered  a number of workshops that might be right for you including:
  • Environmental & Outdoor STEM
  • Astronomy Basics
  • Science Magic
  • Coding for Good
  • Easy Engineer Projects
  • Take Your Science Outdoors
Have something to contribute?  Consider becoming a workshop leader and share your knowledge with other volunteers.
