Every year we call to action Girl Scouts everywhere to commit to seven goals and accompanying activities—whether girls have time for them this week or want to take them on in the months to come. After all, being a Girl Scout isn’t just for special occasions!
Whether you’re a Girl Scout alum, a current member, a dedicated volunteer, or you simply have an extraordinary Girl Scout in your life, you’re an important part of the Girl Scout family. And you know what families do together? Celebrate!
And Girl Scout Week is definitely something to celebrate.
Work on your own or as a troop to be friendly, helpful, considerate and caring and take action. Consider performing random acts of kindness for someone in your community or send cards, letters, signs or small gifts to to show kindness to people that have supported you in your Girl Scout adventures.
Make SWAPS to share with other Girl Scouts at your school or in your community. SWAPS stands for “Special Whatchamacallits Affectionately Pinned Somewhere.” They are small tokens of friendship that Girl Scouts exchange with one another, and each SWAP uniquely reflects a fellow Girl Scout, their troop, or a memory of a special event.
As a Girl Scout, you are doing amazing things for your community and exploring new hobbies and interest every day! Don't forget to share your story with others and even invite them on the journey with you.
We want to share all of your stories too! Submit them here.
