The Girl Scout Promise

On my honor, I will try:
     To serve God and my country,
     To help people at all times,
     And to live by the Girl Scout Law.

The Girl Scout Law

I will do my best to be
     honest and fair,
     friendly and helpful,
     considerate and caring,
     courageous and strong, and
     responsible for what I say and do,
and to
     respect myself and others,
     respect authority,
     use resources wisely,
     make the world a better place, and
     be a sister to every Girl Scout.


Girl Scouts


Daisies are in Kindergarten and 1st grades.  They earn Daisy petals for activities relating to the Girl Scout Law. Daisies are introduced into camping, fundraisers, and other fun Girl Scout activities.

Brownies are in 2nd and 3rd grades, and they can earn their try-its by doing three related activities.  The girls in the troop make decisions together about what they like to do with guidance from their troop leaders and sometimes the older scouts, based on time to complete, budget, and how realistically it can be accomplished.  They learn basic goal setting that will help them as they get older and they have lots of fun!

Juniors are 4-5th grades.  If they are interested in leadership and giving back to the community, they can earn badges that lead to the Bronze Award, the highest award available to a Junior Girl Scout.  This involves a community service event of 15 hours and prepares them to learn about the future Silver and Gold Awards, if they choose those in the future levels.  Juniors are learning to make more decisions about what they want to do in their troop and will have more leadership opportunities with their group.

Cadettes are 6-8th grades in high school.  Cadettes can earn the Silver Award, the second highest award in Girl Scouting by performing community service and completing the Going for the Silver booklet to assist them in leadership skills.  Assistant Leader is experienced in mentoring girls who choose this path.  A Silver Award is a good step to approaching the Gold Award when they are Ambassadors.  They learn valuable leadership skills while helping their community.  They are also more in charge of their troop meetings, making more decisions and planning for trips or service with the mentoring of their leaders.

Seniors are Freshmen and Sophmores in High School.  They are independent and want more control over their troop activities.  They sometimes lead the younger girls in activities and they are able to earn interest patches (IP's), Studio 2B charms, or they can take the Journeys pathways.  They may also start working on requirements for the Gold Award, if they so choose. They do not have to have the Bronze or Silver to do this, each 

Ambassadors are Juniors or Seniors in High School.  They may earn their Gold Award at this age, if they choose.  We have had 2 successful Gold Awards earned and the Asst Leader is experienced in mentoring someone who chooses this path.  The Gold Award is the highest award a girl can earn and can assist her in applying for college aid.  Some colleges will give scholarships to Gold Award recipients who attend their institutions and other use the leadership and community service hours in accepting into advanced or leadership programs.

Uniforms help identify the girls as being in Girl Scouts.  The traditional full uniform has a whilte polo shirt and khaki pants or skirt along with a sash or vest.  Ask the leaders about the pins available as well.  Uniforms are important if they are recognized for obtaining their highest award levels and some troops participate in community or council activities, which would need a full uniform.  Meetings are completely casual, leader will discuss if an activity outside the troop would need a uniform.  Shirts and pants are allowed from any retailer or other location, doesn't have to be a particular brand.
