Girl Scouts holds free open house event at EPIC Community

Neighborhood girls learn to “code” by making code bracelets they got to take home.

Girl Scouts of California’s Central Coast welcomed girls ages 5 – 18 to an afternoon at a SoCal Gas sponsored open house event. On October 27, fun-filled games and activities were held at an EPIC Community Center in Cabrillo Village, 1515 S Saticoy Ave.

Girls in kindergarten through high school engaged in exciting STEM learning activities, made crafts to take home, met new friends in their neighborhood, and won special giveaways. While girls played, learned, and made new friends, families enjoyed free tacos and ice cream at food trucks. Parents interested in learning more about the Girl Scout program also had the opportunity to speak to council staff and volunteers.

With family support, EPIC exists to build character in vulnerable youth and create everyday leaders throughout marginalized communities, using experimental learning and arts as the mediums to produce responsible citizens. EPIC offers a mentorship program as well as workshops for parents and kids to develop and unleash a child’s inner leader. Girl Scouts of California’s Central Coast partnered with EPIC to support this effort and provide girls based in Ventura with fun activities that inspire the leader in them.

Girl Scouts is for every girl, and we’re ready to help her see what she’s capable of no matter her dreams, passions, or goals. Let’s explore the outdoors, get involved with the community, learn a new skill, and serve those in need. Together, there is no limit to what girls can accomplish.

A second Girl Scout Open House event is being held Saturday, November 6, 11:00 AM – 2 PM at WestView 1153 Village Way, Ventura. Learn more about this event at http://www.girlscoutsccc.org or contact gsilva@girlscoutsccc.org for more information.
