Life is a maze of relationships, and the aMAZE journey has Girl Scout Cadettes maneuvering through all its twists and turns.
And sometimes it’s easier to talk about those issues in the context of others’ stories, rather than battles girls are experiencing themselves.
Here are a few movie ideas recommended by other leaders for the aMAZE journey:
Inside Out: Five Emotions must work hard when a young girl moves to a new city. (This would also be great for those Juniors, whose emotions are starting to run the best of them!)
The Clique: Claire is the new girl at school. She’s clearly not top Clique material and the girls have no problem letting everyone know it. But with a little luck, she might just stand a chance.
Chrissa Stands Strong: Chrissa Maxwell and her family have just moved, and she has to start at a new school mid-year. Will she fit in? Can she find new friends?
Princess Diaries: For teenager Mia Thermopolis, just surviving each school day is an adventure. Then the shocking news arrives that she’s a real-life princess! So begins a comical transformation towards poise and princess-ness, including a media storm, jealous schoolmates, and a plot to take over her country.
Karate Kid: When Mr. Miyagi rescues Daniel from the Cobra Kai, a vicious gang of karate school bullies, he instills in his young friend the importance of honor and confidence.
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants: As the summer before their 16th birthdays approaches, four best friends with diverse family backgrounds and personalities hatch a plan to stay connected despite being separated. The girls pass around a pair of secondhand jeans that, magically, look wonderful on all of them despite their different sizes, with each teen keeping the pants for two weeks. Over the summer, the pants come to represent the girls’ mutual support of one another.
Sky High: The son of legendary heroes, young Will Stronghold carries huge expectations as he enters a high-tech high school known for molding the heroes of tomorrow. With no apparent superpowers of his own, however, Will seems destined to grow up a mere sidekick. But as he discovers his true strengths, he’ll also learn that it takes loyalty and teamwork to truly become a hero!
My recommendation is to check with your parents about any movie before sharing with your troop!
