What do Girl Scouts do?
Girls in grades K-5 might belong
to a troop,
learn new skills and earnbadges,
go on hikes, or head to camp for
the first time. Older girls can dig deep into what interests them—they
might learn to code, make a PSA, travel to new places, or go on an
outdoor adventure. Did we mention the potential for earning college scholarships?
