Celebrate Girl Scout Week

Happy Birthday to us!

Girl Scout Birthday is just around the corner! On March 12, 1912, Juliette Gordon Low officially registered our first 18 girl members in Savannah, Georgia. Her vision for Girl Scouting is as meaningful today as it was nearly 100 years ago.

Several local city councils have issued proclamations recognizing this year’s Girl Scout Week (March 7-13). During this happy time of year, the community celebrates our efforts and the accomplishments of our Girl Scouts—our future leaders of America and the world! I am proud to accept to accept these public recognitions on behalf of our council’s other 12,500 adult volunteers.

Board President Solveig Deuprey and I just returned from a national conference of Girl Scout CEOs and chairs. We’re happy to report that Girl Scouting is alive and well across our country. Just like Juliette Low, our leadership is deeply concerned about girl issues and dedicated to keeping programming relevant. Juliette’s legacy was evident in the energy at the conference and the continuing commitment to delivering a high quality Girl Scout experience. She would be proud of the passion we all continue to have for Girl Scouting. We are truly making a difference in girls’ lives every day.

Let’s celebrate everything we’ve accomplished since that first Girl Scout gathering in Savannah. And thank you for all you do for Girl Scouting!

Jo Dee C. Jacob, CEO

Is your camper ready for resident camp?

So you've sent your daughter to Girl Scout day camp for a the past few summers. And she had a blast. Can't stop talking about all the fun she had, the things she learned and the friends she made.

Now she's ready to take the next step and go away to overnight camp for four to five days. Or is she?

We get this question every year from parents who are just not sure...

Girl Scouting is all about encouraging girls to discover how strong they can be. After all, we are the world's best leadership organization for girls.

So, we've put together this little online quiz to help you see if your camper is ready for overnight camp. Of course, you know your daughter better than anyone else does. But this quiz might help you know what personality traits and other indicators to consider.

Take a few minutes and see what it tells you. The questions are intended to make you think, and to suggest a few steps you can take with your camper to get her ready for that next big step.

If she's not quite ready to sleep away from home, not to worry. We offer day camps for girls entering kindergarten through sixth grade that fit a variety of interests and abilities.

As your camper progresses and gains self-assurance at these camps, she'll learn leadership skills that help her build the confidence to move on to overnight camps--and to conquer other challenges that she faces!

We are always eager to hear from you. Let us know what you think.
