Youth organizations in Door and Kewaunee counties have had to get creative with recruiting in the middle of the pandemic, and the Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes are no exception. With access to schools limited due to COVID-19, local Girl Scout troops have organized drive-thru events to highlight their activities, including four in Sturgeon Bay, Sevastopol, Kewaunee, and Luxemburg. Membership Engagement Manager Kristin Gallagher says families are all handling the pandemic differently, so they are offering local troops support to hold in-person and virtual meetings.
Dates for the drive-thrus are listed below. Bay-Lakes Council BSA held similar events last month throughout Door and Kewaunee counties to recruit new Cub Scouts and Scouts USA members. 4-H Educators in Brown, Door, and Kewaunee counties collaborated with each other to create the Explore 4-H box, allowing youth to experience club activities virtually over the course of six weeks beginning October 8th.
Kewaunee- October 6th
Sturgeon Bay- October 8th
Luxemburg- October 12th
Sevastopol- October 13th
