Thinking Day

Every year on February 22nd, Girl Guides and Girl Scouts all over the world take a moment to think about their sisters in the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGS).  It is a special day in the Girl Scout year to remember that Girl Scouts USA is a part of an international movement. February 22nd is the birthday of both Lord Baden-Powell, the founder of Boy Scouting, and his wife, Lady Baden-Powell, who was the World Chief Guide of the Girl Guide/Girl Scouts movement.

Each year one or more troops coordinate the Chappaqua Thinking Day event, which is held on a weekend afternoon, usually in February,  All Chappaqua troops are invited to attend and participate in an international friendship activity, which can vary from year to year.  This is a troop activity; parents (other than those helping the leaders to chaperone) are not invited.
