Summer Stack Club

Girl Scouts of the Southern Appalachians is excited to once again offer a summer reading program for our members, the Summer Stack Club. To earn a Summer Stack Club patch, girls must register (Registration for SSC 2021 is now closed), complete at least 20 hours of reading, and read at least two books from the Girl Scout Reading List during those hours.

There will be lending-libraries at each of our leadership centers where girls can check-out the titles on the 2021 reading list. Feel free to look for them at public libraries, too, or at local bookstores. All titles should be available for ordering online as well. Most titles from our 2019/2020 summer reading lists are also available for check-out from our leadership centers.

NEW THIS YEAR: we are partnering with children's authors in our council to offer signed books as give-aways! Girls who register for the Summer Stack Club will be entered into these give-aways. We are also partnering with local bookstores, and they're providing prizes as well. Stay tuned for more details. 

Girls will have between June 1 and Aug. 6 to complete your reading. They can print out this reading log to keep track of their progress. Keep it for your own records; there’s no need to turn it in to us! It’s on Girl Scout’s Honor that girls complete the patch requirements.
