Girl Scout Week is an annual week-long celebration of Girl Scouts. Take time between March 10 and March 17 to share traditions, learn new things, and celebrate with your troop!

Girl Scout Sunday, March 10

Some Girl Scouts may choose to attend their place of worship in their Girl Scout uniforms, others may learn about a religion, and some may take a moment to consider their own values and beliefs. No matter what faith your girls may or may not practice, learning about acceptance and performing acts of kindness are things everyone can appreciate! 

Go-Getter, March 11

Your girls can be go-getters by working on a Take Action Project, when girls learn and understand the roots of a problem, then develop a project to continually address that problem. The National Park Service invites Girl Scouts to take part in existing projects or design their own.

Girl Scout Birthday, March 12

On this day in 1912, Juliette Gordon Low, met with 18 girls in Savannah, Georgia for the first ever Girl Scout meeting. You and your troop can celebrate by joining girls and leaders who will be visiting their local City Council members at their district office to get the word out about what Girl Scouts are doing in their communities and to share what Girl Scouting means to them

Innovator, March 13

Girl Scout week is a long held tradition, now is a great time to encourage girls to create new traditions- from committing to a community service project, like an annual beach clean-up, to inventing a secret handshake with her fellow Girl Scouts to close out the meetings!

Risk-taker, March 14

Today is the day to try something new! Everyone has a list of things they’ve never done, so give your girls the gentle push to step out of their comfort zone. A risk might be stepping up to go first on the archery range at Camp Kaufmann, or standing up to a bully at her school. Either way, remind your girls trying new things is what Girl Scouts are all about!

Leader, March 15

Ask your girls to reflect on their own leadership. You can help get the conversation started by sharing the reasons why you became a Girl Scout Leader. Then have the girls explore leadership by identifying leaders in their families, communities, or in history; have your troop discuss what these leaders have in common and which leader they relate to the most!

Girl Scout Sabbath, March 16

Girl Scout Week concludes with another opportunity for girls to be recognized as Girl Scouts in their place of worship. Inform girls they can work with family and faith leaders to earn My Promise, My Faith pin.

These are just a few way to celebrate Girl Scout Week, the over-arching theme is to celebrate Girl Scouting and all the incredible history and tradition that comes with it. We continue to celebrate each year thanks to volunteers like you who teach their G.I.R.L.’s they can change the world!
