Introduction

Put on your badges and tie up your kerchiefs - it's time to celebrate Girl Scout Week starting March 10! This exciting annual event builds on the rich history of the Girl Scouts, which can be traced back to 1912 when Juliette Gordon Low organized the first Girl Scout troop in Savannah, Georgia. Ever since then, this empowering week has been a time to honor her vision of creating an organization that encourages girls to embrace their individuality, strengths, and intellect, wrapped up with a primal spirit of adventure. So, whether you're a dedicated Brownie, a steadfast Senior, or new to the Scouting world, brace yourself for a week filled with activities, fun, self-discovery, and meaningful friendships! Let's make Juliette proud and continue her great legacy of strong, courageous, and confident girls and women. Happy Girl Scout Week!
