Girl Scout Week: March 11-17
Yay—Girl Scout Week is just around the corner! We are so excited for this special time of year when Girl Scouts of all ages celebrate and show the world what it means to be a G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™
Girl Scouting was founded on March 12, 1912 by Juliette Gordon Low in Savannah, GA. Juliette gathered 18 girls from her cousin’s school and broke the conventions of the time—reaching across class, cultural, and ethnic boundaries to ensure all girls, including those with so-called disabilities, had a place to grow and develop their leadership skills.
In Girl Scouting, we set this week aside, starting with Girl Scout Sunday and ending with Girl Scout Sabbath on a Saturday, to celebrate our history and spiritual beliefs. Download the calendar above for ideas for celebrating all week long! Check out our Girl Scout Week Pinterest board for a collection of fun activities.
And if you're attending your place of worship on Girl Scout Sunday, download and print these Girl Scout Sunday handouts and bulletin inserts to help spread the word about Girl Scouting and faith.
Make sure you share your fun photos from the week on our Facebook page!
