  • Outdoors
  • Life Skills
  • Entrepreneurship
Program Grade Levels

All girls who are members are considered Girl Scouts. Girls are divided into developmentally appropriate groups and have their own age-appropriate program resources.

Community Partner Resources

Girl Scout awards and badges are a great way for a girl to explore her interests and learn new skills—and show the world what she's accomplished. Check out the different awards and badges here.

Safety Activity Checkpoints (SAC) is a resource that provides safety standards and guidelines for activities. All Community Partners should be familiar with our safety standards. 

We want to hear back from our Community Partners. Complete the Post Program Report after a scheduled an event or quarterly if you are offering an on-going opportunity.
