Keep the Adventure Going!

You are more than a Girl Scout. You’re a G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)TM. 

We believe there’s no such thing as too much. That there’s no excuse for making excuses. Our strength doesn’t come from how much we can lift but from how often we can lift ourselves back up. We are everyday optimists. Adventure seekers. Problem solvers. We are girls, troop leaders, mentors, advocates, parents, Girl Scouts. We are G.I.R.L.s and we will not stop. In fact, we’re just getting started. 

Ready for another exciting year? We can't wait to get started on the next adventure with you!

Unsure as to whether a girl is returning or not?
