There will be tables set up for visitors to learn more about the Girl Scouts, and sponsorship opportunities for Operation:Cookie, which sends Girl Scout cookies to troops serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, and to those recuperating at Walter Reed Medical Center and the Naval Hospital in Bethesda, Maryland. Those in attendance can join the Girl Scouts in making animal cards, stamps and face masks, participating in a scavenger hunt, playing games and making Girl Scout swaps.
In addition to doing these and other activities, the Girl Scouts will also explore the Game Farm as they visit different exotic animals, enjoy the variety of shows and go on the fun, exciting rides.
“We are happy to have the Girl Scouts at the Game Farm and help them celebrate their 100th anniversary,”
“Girl Scouts of Suffolk County is proud to partner with the Long Island Game Farm for Girl Scout Day,” says Yvonne Grant, President and CEO of Girl Scouts of Suffolk County. “Our girls are looking forward to a day filled with fun, excitement and new learning experiences.”
The Girl Scouts have a special place for the Long Island Game Farm’s owners. Diane was a Girl Scout Troop Leader and her daughter, Melinda, was in the Girl Scouts as a teenager.
“The Girl Scouts will have a great time at the Game Farm between seeing the animals and going on the rides,” said Melinda Novak, Vice President and Co-Owner, Long Island Game Farm. “There is so much for them to do here at the Game Farm. It will be a day they will never forget.”
