Happy Independence Day (or Happy 4th of July)!
On July 4, 1776, the thirteen colonies declared their independence from Britain by adopting the Declaration of Independence. Today is a day to celebrate our history, our freedoms and democracy. We highly encourage you to add a reading of the Declaration to your holiday festivities!
To celebrate Independence Day, bring your Girl Scout Troop together to learn a little about the history of and to honor America’s birthday. Fourth of July is often associated with BBQ’s making it a great day to work on some of those cooking badges. Brownies can work on the Snacks badge by making snacks as the appetizers, while Juniors can work towards earning the Simple Meals badge and Cadettes can turn this Fourth of July BBQ into a tour of different dishes made in the USA since 1776 while earning their New Cuisines badge.
