Today, Girl Scouts is 111 years old!
Girl Scout Week begins with both a birthday celebration and Girl Scout Sunday.
On this day in 1912, Juliette Gordon Low registered the first 18 Girl Scout members in Savannah, Georgia. Today is an especially great day to learn more about Girl Scout traditions.
Whenever your troop meets next, have a birthday party or work a special activity together! Find fun ideas for each day of Girl Scout week here. Be sure to send us pictures of how your troop marks this occasion.
It’s also Girl Scout Sunday. This can be a time to reflect on your personal spiritual experience and beliefs and how those are incorporated into your Girl Scout Leadership Experience.
In your free time today, consider researching a different religion or attending a church service and discussing it with your family; you may find a few unexpected commonalities.
Throughout the week, you’ll see that a couple days of Girl Scout Week hold space for Girl Scouts’ spirituality. We invite Girl Scouts to include their faith as part of this special week in a manner true to their own religion. GSUSA and GSMIDTN are welcoming and inclusive to members of all faiths.
