Feeling Chipper about the Great Outdoors
Michels adds, “I think it’s important to be involved at an educational level. Children are the future. And so much of what kids see in entertainment today has little or no value, either as education or entertainment. I wanted to be involved with a project that had a good message, and present that message in an entertaining way without becoming too ‘preachy’ or condescending.”
Rach-Wilson concludes, “Our goal is to excite and educate children so they will ask to go outside and play, while at the same time empowering parents with ideas and tips for a positive experience.”
Event on April 28
Rach-Wilson and Chipper want to invite you to an event on April 28 from 10 am until 4 pm at Cal Expo Sacramento--Between Earth and Sky 100 Years of Girl Scouts - Earn Your Park Badge.
Join Chipper and the Girl Scouts who are celebrating their 100th anniversary in 2012 at this event-- Celebrating Green Forever. The Cal Expo fairgrounds will be transformed into a Girl Scouts-themed universe, showcasing all of what Girl Scouting has to offer from the past, present and in the future.
From arts, crafts and songs to science, activism and games, the 100th event is full of one-of-a-kind activities, information booths, food, live performances and interactive exhibits for all ages. Sing along to national and local talent at the main stage with Radio Disney's "Next Big Thing" winner Coco Jones, Girl Scout pop star Teresa and rockin’ all-sister Sledge Grits Band. There will also be horse shows, bounce houses, contests, SWAPs, rock-climbing walls and the largest display of Girl Scout History in Northern California!
