What do Girl Scouts Do? What is Girl Scout Programming?
Girl Scout Troop Programming:
Through the Girl Scout Leadership Experience girls prepare
for a lifetime of leadership by participating in a collection of
engaging, challenging, and fun activities like earning badges, going
on awesome trips, selling cookies, exploring science, getting
outdoors, and doing community service projects.
Service Unit Programming and Support:
Cookie rallies, World Thinking Day, dances, and encampments. The
service unit is the most important support system for Girl
Scout troops and enables a council with 22 counties to properly
function. Your SU is local level leadership that has regularly
scheduled meetings to provide on site support (troop representation at
meetings is expected). The service unit is made up of volunteers with
specific roles to ensure girls in your immediate area have the best
experience possible. Many service units host several events throughout
the year and it’s a great opportunity to expand your Girl Scout
community beyond your troop.
Council-wide Events and Programming:
Cathy Novinger Girl Scout
: Is designed to be an
incubator for leadership development for all girls. It is an urban
camp experience where troops can plan exciting overnight adventures,
attend programs in the five priorities of leadership development:
Arts, Entrepreneurship, Healthy Living, Outdoor Education and STEM,
and relax with their Girl Scout sisters in the Girls Only lounge. Learn more here.
Camp properties: Camp WaBak and Camp Mary Elizabeth are our two
largest camp properties that enable troops and service units to plan
camping events. We also host programming throughout the year at these
sites. Learn more here.
Community Partners: We’ve teamed up with businesses, colleges,
and other non-profits to create a unique list of activities that your
girls will love to do. These program partners host events like
overnights at the zoo, sports clinics, cooking courses, rafting
adventures and much more. Learn more here.
