Girl Scouts provides incredible opportunities for girls to develop qualities that will serve them all their lives. Girls not only develop leadership skills, but they cultivate lifelong friendships and earn meaningful awards. Through Girl Scout programs, girls learn the importance of responsibility, goal setting, team work and the thrill of accomplishment in a unique, all-girl environment. Girls can do almost anything: land and water sports, camping, arts and crafts, prepare for college, international travel and even represent other girls in the United Nations. Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place.
Girl Scouting is open to every girl age 5-18 who accepts the Girl Scout Promise and Law and pays $25 in annual membership dues. Parents are encouraged to join as well and are needed to lead and chaperone the many events and activities of our Girl Scouts.
Through Girl Scouting and the Girl Scout leadership experience, girls learn new skills in an environment where they feel safe and accepted. Adults are trained to put the needs of girls first, develop strong girl-adult partnerships, encourage girls to share their ideas and provide mentoring, encouragement and coaching. The girl-led activities focus on learning by doing and teamwork. As girls mature, their level of leadership responsibility expands. It's never too late to join in on the fun. A girl can become a Girl Scout at any time of the year and at any age level.
