What Juniors Do

Want to meet a real-life Supergirl? Just talk to a Girl Scout Junior who wakes up every day ready to play a new role.

Juniors are explorers when they go camping for the first time. They're CEOs when they market and sell cookies. They're scientists when they do energy audits and go on nature walks. And they're product designers and writers when they earn their Innovation and Storytelling badges. Not to mention change makers, big-idea thinkers, and future leaders. Supergirl, indeed!

As a Junior, she might:


Share stories (and smiles) with new friends in her troop


Try new experiences and learn new skills as she earns badges


You can sell Girl Scout Cookies and/or Treats & Keeps (and have fun doing it)


Explore the outdoors at camp and beyond


Choose an issue she cares about, then do something to make a difference as part of a Girl Scout Leadership Journey


Earn her Bronze Award, the first of Girl Scouts' highest awards






This journey is filled with ceremonies and circles, real-life heroines, and special new characters, including the fashion-savvy spider named Dez. Along the way, girls learn how their own power combines into team power and then moves out to become community power (kind of like how Dez weaves her web from the inside out). Learn More


Juniors build their skills as leaders who Energize, Investigate, and Innovate. They earn these three prestigious new leadership awards as they explore their own energy, the energy in their places and spaces (buildings), and the energy of getting from here to there (transportation). Learn More


Juniors learn just how many roles are open to them in the world and the possibilities those roles open for them. Whether they want to fly a plane, lead a rock band or win a gold medal, aMUSE helps girls take center stage and try out more roles than they ever thought possible, with a little help from Dez and the Muses.
