TRAVERSE CITY — Girl Scouts have gone digital up north because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
It’s a new trend that may actually stick, officials said.
“When we first when into quarantine we did a meet every Friday and while we were waiting for all the girls to join on, we’d play a game or just chat,” said Girl Scout Kayeann Fraley, 12, of Traverse City.
Her troop collectively watches educational videos, takes turns reading paragraphs for badge work, and some members even hang back after the end of meetings to just hang out online and talk, Kayeann said.
“It’s fun to be together, but obviously, I’d like to be in person — everyone would. But we can still talk to each other,” she said.
