As Girl Scouts, we live by the motto "be prepared" and that
includes when the unexpected happens. The safety and well-being of our
members and their families are of paramount importance as we all
navigate through the COVID-19 situation together. While we ask that
all members continue to follow the guidance of the Center for Disease
Control (CDC) and their local health officials and cease in-person
meetings, we want to deliver the opportunity for Girl Scouting to
continue at home.
Below you'll find more information on how girls, their families, and
troop leaders can continue to participate in Girl Scouting at home or
virtually until we are able to meet again in person.
These are all available to the public—no Girl Scout membership
necessary. Check back often!
At Home Girl Scouting for Girls and Their Families
Below you'll find activities, badge requirements and more that you
can do with your Girl Scout.
Girl Scouting at Home for Troop Leaders
We are committed to creating virtual experiences, with the support
of our national organization, Girl Scouts of the USA, and sister
councils, to provide your girls enriching activities during this time
of social distancing. This will be a fantastic resource for not only
your girls, but any parent you may know who needs educational
resources for their children at home. Additional content for troop
leaders will be provided to help you navigate this new world of
virtual troop meetings and distance learning.
Looking for ways to talk to your troop about COVID-19? There are a
number of great resources from the Child Mind Institute, National Association of School Psychologists ,
National Child Traumatic Stress Network, and Kids Health.
Resources from Other Girl Scout Councils
While you might not be able to meet with your local Girl Scout
friends during this time, you CAN connect with other Girl Scouts
across the country! Here are more at home resources, live streams
and more our sister councils are sharing:
Resources to Meet Virtually
Below is a list of free and low-cost tools troops and Communities in
other councils are using for virtual meetings. While we cannot endorse
or support specific online meeting tools, we encourage you to look at
these and alternative options and discuss with parents and girls to
determine what the best solution is for your troop or Community needs.
