Celebrate Faith in Girl Scouts

For Girl Scouts, religious recognition programs reinforce many of the values they learn through Girl Scouting and help them grow stronger in and learn more about their chosen faith. 

Girl Scouts of all levels can earn the My Promise, My Faith pin, which invites them to experience a faith journey through exploration of the Girl Scout Law and teachings from their faith.  Girls can earn this national pin each year.

The Catholic Committee on Scouting serving the Pittsburgh region offers several events for Girl Scouts, including an annual Girl Scout/Boy Scout retreat, as well as information on earning special patches, awards and religious emblems. For more information, visit or read the most recent Catholic Committee on Scouting newsletter here.

The National Catholic Committee for Girl Scouts & Camp Fire offers religious recognitions for girls throughout many counties in the GSWPA council. Visit for more information.

Many religious organizations have created faith-based awards for Girl Scouts. You can find details about religious recognition programs and other resources for collaborating with faith communities at P.R.A.Y. Publishing.
