There are so many ways to be a Girl Scout! She can go to summer camp, join a troop, sell cookies, work on badges and Journeys as an independent Juliette, or attend council-sponsored events. The flexibility is a perfect fit for families that homeschool. Plus, you can mix and match Girl Scout badges with the curriculum you are using! 

The content of all Girl Scout national proficiency badges and Journeys have been correlated by grade level to national Common Core Standards, 21st Century Skills Standards, Financial Literacy Education Standards, and curriculum for all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
