Help at Pumpkin Smash--outdoors! Socially distancing!

Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana

Camp Fire

It is pumpkin smashing season! Join us for our 3rd annual Pumpkin Smash event and unite with others in the effort to help divert compostable material from landfills. Composting pumpkins is a great way we can help our planet and why not have some fun in the process! Bring your old pumpkins to compost...and SMASH! You can choose to drop your pumpkin from a ladder or use a hammer to break it into smaller pieces.

We could use help with the following stations/areas: -General parking and directing traffic (this would only occur at the beginning and they would probably also assist with the Pumpkin Smash station once everyone has arrived.) -Pumpkin Smash station (including helping weigh pumpkins, hold ladders, clean program equipment between uses, collect smashed pumpkins) -Food station (helping pass out pre-packaged food, cleaning eating areas)

About Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana


20 S. Clark St., Suite 200, Chicago, IL 60603, US

Mission Statement

Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.


Founded in 1912, Girl Scouts of the USA is the preeminent organization for girls with a current membership of 3.6 million girls and adults. Volunteers use their expertise, skills, interests, and life experience to shape fun and enriching leadership experiences for girls, and inspire them to reach their personal best. Volunteers help council staff facilitate the New Girl Scout Leadership Experience to girls through exciting program opportunities: leadership/self-esteem, financial literacy, travel, health/wellness, science, technology, engineering, and math. Volunteers choose from several flexible Pathways (the ways that girls and adults join Girl Scouting) that fit their lifestyles, including short-term or long-term service working either directly or indirectly with girls, and they can participate regionally, nationally, and internationally.
