Girl Scout Week

Girl Scout Week is celebrated each March, starting with Girl Scout Sunday and ending with Girl Scout Sabbath on Saturday, and it always includes Girl Scouts’ Birthday, March 12. This is a great time to reflect on what it means to be a Girl Scout and all of the amazing things Girl Scouts do to make the world a better place. Celebrate Girl Scout Week 2021 with us by joining in on some of the activities here and earn a new custom patch!

Sunday, March 7 - Girl Scout Sunday

This is the perfect time to honor one’s faith and learn about faith-based communities different from your own. Girls with many different backgrounds are involved in Girl Scouts. We have Girl Scout Sisters in 146 countries around the world!

Think about your beliefs and how they are reflected in the Girl Scout Law. What do they have in common? Talk with your friends, family, or another Girl Scout about your thoughts. 

Monday, March 8- Take Pride in Girl Scout Spirit Day

Get out your green gear—it’s Girl Scout Spirit Day! Whether you sport a Girl Scout tee at school or under a blazer at the office or rock a trefoil sweatshirt at the gym, let everyone know you're proud to be a Girl Scout. 

Don't forget to snap a pic and share how you're rocking your Girl Scout gear. 

Tuesday, March 9- Be a Go-Getter!

A Go-Getter is bold, honest, and determined to succeed. Goal-oriented and ambitious, she’s also a life-long learner who believes no challenge is too difficult. Whether you're goal is to get straight A's, earn a Girl Scout Highest Award, or master a new skill—no goal is too big for a Girl Scout!

Set a goal to achieve this Girl Scout year and make a plan on how you will make it happen. 

Wednesday, March 10- Be an Innovator

Innovators love to think outside the box and look for creative ways to take action and make the world a better place. They’re not afraid to do things differently or do things that have never been done before! Get ready to solve a problem in a creative way.

Invent something new and think outside the box to find a new way to do something! Share your ideas with other Girl Scout sisters or your family.

Thursday, March 11 - Be a Risk-Taker!

Courageous and strong, a Risk-Taker’s keen to try new things and to embrace the unfamiliar. She’s ready to step up and break the mold if that’s what it takes.

Today—try something new! This can be talking to someone new at school, riding a bike for the first time, or even earning a Girl Scout badge that's out of your comfort zone. Whatever you choose—explore the world around you and tell us what you did! 

Friday, March 12 - Celebrate Girl Scouts' Birthday

It's time to party because on this day in 1912 Juliette Gordon Low officially registered the first 18 girl members in Savannah, Georgia. 

Throw a birthday party for Girl Scouts! Whether this is at home with your family, or socially distanced with your Girl Scout troop, celebrate everything Girl Scouts has done for you and your community! 

Saturday, March 13 - Be a Leader

A leader is confident, responsible, and committed to changing the world for the better—and she’s happiest when others join her in taking the lead!

Make the world a better place by giving back to your community! This could be leading a cleanup at your local park, donating food to your community food bank, and so much more.

Plan a Girl Scouts Celebrate Faith Event

Girl Scout Week is a time when we shout our Girl Scout pride from the rooftops! It’s also a time when many troops celebrate the connections between Girl Scouting and their faith, learn more about other faiths, and thank faith partners for their support throughout the year.

Whether girls participate in a worship service, plan an activity before or after the service, or organize a service project, your girls can honor those meaningful connections in lots of ways! Check out these resources to help you plan, promote, and carry out your virtual or in-person events.
