Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. This mission, along with the Girl Scout Promise and Law are the foundation of all that we do.
Founder Juliette Gordon Low organized the first Girl Scout Troop on March 12, 1912 in Savannah, Georgia. Today as leaders, we still continue to instill in our girls the core meaning of being a Girl Scout and that is "To make this world we live in a much better place"….by our words, deeds and most importantly our actions. This program has a long tradition of fostering the confidence, skills, and education of young women who’ve entered all walks of life.
Our Girl Scouts meet every Friday from 6-7:30 pm. Dedicated, experienced Leaders work closely with Daisy, Brownie, Junior, Cadet, Senior and Ambassador Troops, to teach, to share, to encourage and to have fun. Their journey may continue from Kindergarten through 12th Grade.
A number of our girls again have earned the Gold, Silver and Bronze Awards. Qualification includes a project that enhances some aspect of our community and people's lives. This recognition is highly-prized, and looks great on a college application.
