The goal of the Girl Scouts Program is to invite girls into experiences that will help them value their own self-worth and respect that of other.
The Girl Scout program is an informal, educational, value-based organization. Through this program, girls ages five through 17, (Kindergarten through 12th grade) develop self-worth, learn new skills, explore a wide range of opportunities, and make lasting friendships while having fun! Troops meet weekly, biweekly or monthly. Girl Scout leaders are trained adult volunteers, usually parents, who help girls derive the many benefits from Girl Scouting.
The Girl Scout program provides girls with a myriad of enriching experiences, such as extraordinary field trips, sports skill-building clinics, community service projects, cultural exchanges and nature study. In fact, the variety of experiences offered through the Girl Scout program reaches further than any other extra-curricular program a girl could join. Best of all, girls do all these things with their friends and make many new ones as a Girl Scout.
In addition to these activities, the girls have fun camping, swimming, horseback riding, archery and taking annual trips supported through their annual cookie sale. Girls can explore these topics and more at http://www.gsep.org/girls/for-girls.php
