On February 22, Girl Scouts and Girl Guides across 150 countries celebrate World Thinking Day—that’s one big celebration!
Promoted by the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS for short) along with Girl Scouts of the USA, World Thinking Day originated in 1926. That’s when delegates from around the globe met at Camp Edith Macy—now called Edith Macy Center—in New York State and agreed that February 22 would henceforth be known as a special day for Girl Guides and Girl Scouts worldwide. Girl Scouts, troops and their families came together on March 1st to celebrate and remember our sister Girl Scouts and Girl Guides around the world.
World Thinking Day theme this year was “ Living Threads” Using threads to represent the concepts of diversity, equity and inclusion this year.
The Event began with a candle ceremony followed by a one hour bazaar, girls traveled, sampled food and learned more about the culture of that country.
Next was the presentation of the countries. Girls were brave and confident and as they explained what they learned .
