Girl Scouts from Troop 2140 recently participated in World Thinking Day to show how much they value friendship and awareness of the global community. Each year Girl Scouts and Girl Scout supporters and volunteers gather at this event to learn about new cultures and international friendship.

Friendship is one of the core ideals the Girl Scouts focus on as an organization, and this year Girl Scouts learned about a variety of destinations such as Spain, Brazil, Saudi Arabia and France.

Each troop had the option to represent a country by hosting a booth, and travel from country to country exploring other cultures. Those hosting a booth created an informational display highlighting their chosen country’s culture, geography and products. The girls also sampled food from different countries, played games, danced and got henna tattoos. There was also a display of a traditional Muslim prayer ritual.

Each girl received a patch for her vest or sash for participating in World Thinking Day.

Thinking Day not only gives girls a chance to celebrate international friendships but is also a reminder that Girl Scouts of the USA is part of a global community – one of nearly 150 countries with Girl Guides and Girl Scouts.
