Get out and CAMP for summer 2019: Registration for Girl Scout Camp begins Jan. 17

Girl Scout Camp is a place for every girl to answer the call to adventure, grow in confidence, and discover the power she has to change the world!

Share the Girl Scout experience

We love Girl Scouts. You love Girl Scouts. But, it can be frustrating when stereotypes and myths about what Girl Scouting is persist!  Help us change the perception that Girl Scouts just do crafts and sell cookies.

Sure, being part of the world’s largest girl-led entrepreneurial program is cool and gives girls the business smarts they need to take on the world; and the young makers of today are the inventors and innovators of the future, but Girl Scouts is even more than that. We’re adventurers and risk-takers who get outside and face our fears. (Check out this video of local Girl Scouts rock climbing at Garden of the Gods.) We’re dreamers and tinkerers who will build new technologies. ( Watch this video of Girl Scouts learning about cybersecurity.) We take care of our communities and speak up for others. (Watch this video)

Girl Scouts’ powerful all girl space (watch this video) fosters collaboration over competition and inspires girls to go beyond dreaming to actually doing. We want this for all girls! Please help spread the word, share the videos within your social circles, and show the world the power of Girl Scouts!
