Courtney Birckbichler from Fleetwood Girl Scout Ambassador Troop 11096 recently earned her Girl Scout Gold Award.
Courtney lead her team to create a DVD/YouTube video promoting 4H camp. Courtney has been a camper since she was 8 years old and more recently has been a camp counselor and the 4-H staff wanted her to create the video to promote camp so that more campers would be motivated to attend camp each summer.
She also organized the renovation of the 4-H Center in Leesport for which she led a group of volunteers to prepare and paint more than two dozen doors and a horse announcer booth. They also removed more than 100 damaged ceiling tiles from a meeting room in the 4-H Center. This renovation greatly improved the appearance of the 4-H Center. Courtney spent more than 92 hours completing her Gold Award project.
Courtney joins her family’s success in Scouting. Her father and two brothers are Boy Scout Eagle Scouts and her mother earned her Girl Scout First Class Award as a girl. Back then, Girl Scout Gold Award was known as the Girl Scout First Class Award.
