Aside from being really old news, what exactly does GSUSA's realignment have to do with the topic?
Girls Scouts can do pretty much what ever they, and their leaders, want to do.
How old/what level they are also has an impact on what they can do.
Some Troops are very outdoors oriented, others not so much.
I know of one Troop of older girls that held a progressive dinner. They planned out a dinner where each course was at a different members house. Each member was in charge of their part of the dinner.
Just about every GS Troop does service of some kind throughout the year.
Throughout their 12 years as youth in the GSUSA program, our girls camped in lodges, tents, and even a railroad car, swam, hiked, canoed, rode horses, went bowling, flew kites, learned about zoo management, went cross country skiing, learned manners, cooked over fires, played games, went sledding, sang songs, did science experiments, planted gardens, learned about trees, ran programs at the library, had sleepovers, visited museums, played dress up, learned first aid, worked with younger Scouts (girls and boys), helped with the food pantry Christmas baskets, did skits, shot arrows, danced, made holiday cards/placemats for Meals On Wheels, visited an animal shelter, went to plays, had picnics, made lots of "stuff", earned all of their religious emblems, snowshoeing, made candy, wall climbing, and much, much, more.
They all also earned the Girl Scout Silver, and Gold Awards (Bronze cam out when they were working on their Silver so they missed that), and are now Lifetime Girl Scouts.
