100 Years of Girl Scouting in Utah

A century ago, Juliette Gordon Low assembled 18 girls in Savannah, Georgia, for the first local Girl Scout meeting. She believed that all girls should be given the opportunity to develop physically and mentally, as well as build leadership skills. With the goal of bringing girls out of isolated home environments and into community service and the open air, Girl Scouts hiked, played basketball, went on camping trips, learned how to tell time by the stars, and studied first aid.

In 2020, Girl Scouts of Utah celebrates our centennial, and 100 years of building girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. Join us as we remember all of the incredible experiences and adventures Girl Scouts of Utah has been providing for 100 years.
