Girl Scouts!

What is Girl Scouting?
The Girl Scout Program is girl-driven, reflecting the ever-changing needs and interests of today's girls.

Girls discover the fun, friendship, and power of girls together. Girls learn the importance of personal responsibility, the value of goal-setting, the spirit of teamwork, and the thrill of accomplishment.
In Girl Scouts, your daughter will:

Make new friends
Earn skills and badges through GS Journeys
Explore her world through trips
Stay active and learn about nature through camping
Give back to her community with service projects
Celebrate her accomplishments in GS ceremonies

Girl Scouts Promise
On my honor, I will try:
To serve God* and my country,
To help people at all times,
And to live by the Girl Scout Law.
* The word "God" can be interpreted in a number of ways, depending on one's spiritual beliefs. When reciting the Girl Scout Promise, it is okay to replace the word "God" with whatever word your spiritual beliefs dictate.
