Girl Scout Week Resources

We invite all Girl Scouts, their friends, families, volunteers and supporters to celebrate Girl Scout Week!  This year Girl Scout week will take place starting March 10, on Girl Scout Sunday and will end on March 16, Girl Scout Sabbath. Girl Scout week is always centered around the date that Juliette Gordon Low officially registered the first 18 girl members in Savannah, Georgia in 1912, making, March 12th the birthday of Girl Scouting.

Girl Scout Sunday and Girl Scout Sabbath give girls an opportunity to attend their place of worship and be recognized as a Girl Scout. If a place of worship is the group sponsor, girls may perform a service, such as greeting, ushering, or doing a flag ceremony. These days can also be a time when girls explore other faiths.

Below you will find links to download some resources for Girl Scout week including inserts for Sunday/Sabbath, a proclamation request letter for your local officials and a sample proclamation.  

During Girl Scout week it is important to let everyone know what Girl Scouting is all about. So, what do you say when someone asks about today's Girl Scouts? A Girl Scout is any girl in grades K-12 who is ready to have fun and take action! Girls who attend are our summer camps are Girl Scouts. Girls who attend a single leadership program or a series of programs are all Girl Scouts! Any girl who is ready to go on an adventure and make a difference in her world can register to become a Girl Scout member. Today's Girl Scouts are one the move, exploring new career paths through our STEM programs, gaining confidence with our Uniquely Me Self-Esteem workshops, saving the environment with Pull the Plug, going on an adventure at camp and more.

Joining a troop is just one option, but for our busy on the go girls – why not just choose form our collection of program opportunities, work on your Girl Scout Gold Award and prepare for college or join us on any of our outdoor activities. The choices are endless!

Membership is what you make it. From a traditional troop experience, to just attending the programs that interest you the most, you can be a Girl Scout on your time, in your way. So spread the word and invite others to join!
