What Girls Can Do

At Girl Scouts, you’re going to have tons of fun, make new friends, and go on fantastic new adventures.

You’re also going to get the chance to do big things. Our program centers on something called the Girl Scout Leadership Experience—a collection of activities and experiences you’ll have as you earn badges, sell cookies, go on exciting trips, explore the outdoors, do Take Action projects that make a difference, and more.

Put simply, in Girl Scouts you will:

Discover. You’ll find out who you are, what you care about, and what your talents are.

Connect. Collaborate with other people, locally and globally, to make a difference in the world.

Take Action. Do something to make the world a better place.

With Girl Scouts, you’ll do more than you ever thought you could, dream bigger dreams than you ever imagined, and — oh, yeah — change the world. Bet you didn’t think rock climbing or selling cookies would help you do all that, did you?

A Girl Can Be a Girl Scout in Many Ways

  • Register individually and participate in council-wide activities.
  • Attend Girl Scout Camp during Spring and/or Summer break.
  • Join a short-term interest group on careers, engineering, sports, theater, or money management, just to name a few!
  • Join a Troop with a group of girls and a couple of adults in your area.
  • Go on a chaperoned trip that empowers girls to explore their state, nation, and world.
