6th-12th Grade Older Girl Program

At Girl Scouts, girls discover the fun, friendship, and power of girls together. Girls grow courageous and strong through a wide variety of enriching experiences, such as field trips, skill-building sports clinics, community service projects, cultural exchanges, and environmental stewardships.

When girls get older, the organization adapts to meet their needs, programs become more Girl-LED and the value of our custom leadership experience is seen. Join us in continuing the Girl Scout experience, through new and exciting activities and programs.
