Joining Girl Scouts

Girl Scouts provides opportunities for girls ages 5 to 17 to learn new skills, make new friends and develop leadership abilities that will serve them throughout life. All girls are welcome regardless of race, religion, socioeconomic background or special needs. In a recent national research study, girls responded that their Girl Scout activities gave them the opportunity to develop nine important characteristics, including:

  • Self Reliance
  • Self-Competence
  • Social Skills (ability to make friends)
  • Respect for Others
  • Feelings of Belonging
  • Values-clarification and Decision-making
  • Helpfulness and Concern for Community
  • Teamwork
  • Leadership
