Business Insight in Addition to Badges…Girl Scouts Moves On

Mum and daughter on computer After reading the Washington Post article about a Girl Scout "Camp CEO" that pairs traditional scouting activities with lectures on business from Washington area business leaders, I wished I could go back to my scouting days!  Local business women joined the girls for a week of fun and business knowledge to help them think how they will manage work- life balance and break the frontiers still left behind by the current generation. As explained by the writer Jennifer Buske:  ' "The women at camp included chief executives, law firm partners, judges, doctors and entrepreneurs. Howard University's senior vice president and a chef who once cooked for Julia Child also attended the camp. The professionals taught the 13- to 17-year-old girls lessons on leadership, teamwork, persistence and confidence. This camp is different because it's not just fun, but it's also helping you plan your future," said 15-year-old Kristina Chin of Prince George's County. "The message I will remember is there will be struggles, but even if it seems everything is going downhill, there is always an upside."
