Explorations, Fun, and Best Friends Forever


Girl Scout Juniors are in grades 4 and 5 and they earn badges and discover what girl power is all about through new activities and by learning to take charge of their own plans. They gain self-confidence as they explore the world in partnership with their troop/group leaders.

Making the World a Better Place


Girl Scout Cadettes are in grades 6, 7, and 8, Seniors are in grades 9 and 10, and Ambassadors are in grades 11 and 12 and they participate in Girl Scouting in many ways.
