August through January Activity Plan

One of the hardest things as a leader is figuring out what to do and how to pull it off. I remember struggling to figure out things the group wanted to do. I know... girl-led... but, they don't know what they want to do either OR they come up with things to drain the account faster than you can blink. So... let's just say they need your guidance and help.

Let's face it... it's also fun to plan activities for them they will be sure to enjoy. No one wants to hang around a bunch of bored people that are only there to do what they have to do in order to muddle through and leave. Now that my Seniors are planning their own things, I remind them they must entertain me or else I won't want to be there either. It's all in jest, sort of, but it's a reminder that it should be fun!!

So... I'm here to help you out. No matter what age you have... patch programs can supplement and provide a lot of great memories and add on more thrills to the other activities you are already doing.

Here's a quick simple 6 month plan to get you started off right this year. :)
