When Carmel High School students Sarah Warf and Sierra Hunnicutt and Carmel Middle School student Audrey Cox began working on their service project for their Girl Scout Silver Award, they had no idea that their finished product would end up reaching a national audience.

Warf, Hunnicutt and Cox spent hours performing, editing and uploading popular Girl Scout camp songs onto their YouTube channel, Singing Scouts. Along with posting songs, they also created a printable songbook linked to their channel, encouraging viewers to sing along.

“Sarah’s strength was the song leading and creating the YouTube channel. Audrey was excellent with the movie-making portion. Sierra typed out lyrics and helped market the page to non-Girl Scout entities for help with song-leading portions of their jobs,” said Jennifer Warf, Sarah’s mother.

The channel has built up a steady subscriber base and has gained admiration from organizations across the nation.

“I sent emails with the link to our YouTube channel to camps all across America,” Sarah Warf said. “I think having that online access does allow us to connect with a lot more people.”

Girl Scout troops from Florida, Hawaii, Ohio and Texas have replied with promises of implementing the channel and songbook into their programs, and the Girl Scouts of Greater New York have featured the channel on its Facebook page.

“My friends and I really enjoy making these type of performances for kids so it can hopefully help them,” Hunnicutt said.

The girls continue to participate in local events to perform and inspire fellow and future Girl Scouts. Watch their channel at youtube.com/channel/UCUwdomsHba4mp3sy2_DIKeA.
