It's that special time of year when Girl Scouts of all ages celebrate and show the world what it means to be a G.I.R.L. (Go-Getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, and Leader). March 11th - 18th is National Girl Scout Week!
Girl Scout Week always includes March 12th, to commemorate the day Juliette Gordon Low officially registered the first 18 girl members in Savannah, Georgia. And since one day just isn’t enough time to honor such a momentous occasion, we’ve dedicated a whole week to celebrating the greatness of Girl Scouts! Girl Scout Week begins on Girl Scout Sunday and ends on Girl Scout Sabbath--two opportunities to reflect on what it means to be a Girl Scout within the context of your faith.
Traditionally, Girl Scouts also marked Girl Scout Week with seven days of service. Use this modernized activity list to celebrate the week. Each day, choose at least one activity to complete from that day. (If you want to push yourself – do more than 1 each day!)
When Girl Scout Week is complete, come pick up your Girl Scout Week fun patch at the Girl Scout Shop! (This patch and additional fun patches to mark each day will be available in all council shops.)
