The Girl Scout Leadership Experience engages girls in discovering themselves, connecting with others, and taking action to make the world a better place. This begins with a definition of leadership that girls understand and believe in: A leader, girls say, is defined not only by the qualities and skills one has, but also by how those qualities and skills are used to make a difference in the world. Discover the fun, friendship and power of Girl Scouting.

The journey begins with PATHWAYS, six ways in which girls might participate in Girl Scouting:

CAMP. Do you love learning about nature and the environment? Girls can choose a day camp or an overnight resident camp. There is something for YOU!

EVENTS. Most girls have more than one passion. Maybe storytelling, and acting and dancing. Choose events centered on your favorite activities throughout the Girl Scouting year

SERIES. Everything’s more fun when you’re sharing it with others who love the same things. Our series let girls explore interests together in a way that fits their schedules.

TRAVEL. Want to go places? Girl Scouts do. When they see and experience new things, it’s always an adventure they’ll never forget.

TROOPS. Meeting regularly, girls can share amazing experiences…learn to make a difference in their community…and have lots of fun! Troops can be all year long or condensed into shorter periods of time that works for the girl!
VIRTUAL. Girl Scouting via the Internet? Hey, it’s the 21st century. As a virtual Scout, girls can join in exciting interactive activities with girls their age.
Today’s Girl Scouts may select some or all of the options available – Pathways! Check the CALENDAR to see some of the events in your area.
