Girl Scouts at Home

The Girl Scout mission is to build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. Our mission does not specify a place and that’s because our girls can exhibit courage, confidence, and character wherever they are—including from home.

In this unique time, we are offering our community Girl Scout activities from home! Whether it be badge work, simple activities, or even a song—we are committed to supporting our girls and their families. We will continue to update and add new activities each week! If you have already earned the badges listed visit GSUSA’s Badge Explorer.

Badges Girls Can Earn From Home

Facebook Live Badge Workshops

Join staff members from their homes as we get a jump on badges—while social distancing! We will complete some steps of a badge together during the Facebook Live, then we'll give you tips and tricks for girls to finish the badge independently.

Virtual Summer Camp

Summer Camp may look different this year, but our mission is the same. Girl Scout Camp is a second home for Girl Scouts—and that is not changing. That’s why this year we are bringing the outdoors in! Same girl-led, outdoor adventures—but delivered to your front door. Because Summer Camp is not just a place—it’s a leadership-building, friend-meeting, and challenge-seeking experience.

How does it work? Each week will have a theme that will influence what girls do and what badges they earn. Who can attend? All girls! Each grade level will have their own session—with themes like Animal Adventures and STEM Shenanigans!

Make the World a Better Place

National Service Project

Letterwriting Service Project: The idea is simple: girls write letters to people in nursing homes, senior residences, and assisted living facilities, including the dedicated staff and caregivers. This long-distance hug is a way to share your good thoughts with these vulnerable and loved community members.

Mask-Making Service Project: Now, with this nationwide mask-making campaign, all girls have the chance to step up to help their friends, neighbors, and frontline workers during the COVID-19 pandemic. And we’ve partnered with Feeding America, a network of local food banks across the U.S., to make it easy for your girls to amplify their efforts.

Girl Scouts Give Back: Citizen Science: This summer, your troop can contribute to important scientific research by participating in GSUSA's Girl Scouts Give Back citizen science projects. GSUSA partnered with SciStarter, an online citizen science community, to help get you going!

Social Distancing Service Challenge

It’s in our Girl Scout DNA to help in a time of crisis! However, we want all Girl Scouts to stay safe and healthy at home. There are many ways that girls can provide community support from home.

We are calling all girls to participate in the Social Distancing Service Challenge! It's easy to earn an awesome "Girl Power Can't be Quarantined" patch! Find activities you would like to complete on this flyer, complete the form, then post at least one photo from your activities on our Facebook page with the hashtags #GirlScoutStrong and #ServiceChallenge.

We’re here to support your girl and your family and we’re not going anywhere.
