Summer Stack Club

Last summer, GSCSA collaborated with Knox County’s Read City USA to promote summer reading and give Knox County Girl Scouts the opportunity to earn a fun patch. This summer, GSCSA is rolling out our own council-wide, summer reading program, called the Summer Stack Club! In order to earn the Summer Stack Club patch, girls will need to register and complete 20 hours of reading with a minimum of 2 books* read from the Girl Scout reading list between June 1 and Aug. 7.
