This year, Girl Scout Week is celebrated from Sunday, March 10th to Saturday, March 16th. Girl Scout week is a fundamental tradition when we shout our Girl Scout pride from the rooftops and celebrate the founding of Girl Scouts of America in 1912, hence March 12th Girl Scout Birthday, when our Founder, Juliette Gordon Low, registered her first Girl Scout troop in Savannah, Georgia. It is 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.
While it is fun for your girls to celebrate Girl Scout week, it is an optional individual activity and not a troop activity led by a leader. Younger girls may need family support to accomplish the daily Girl Scout Week activities.
Once girls complete all seven days of fun and exciting activities, they will be able to wear the 2024 Girl Scout week patch on the back of their vest/sash.
Girls and Troops can also celebrate Girl Scout Week by arranging a Proclamation in honor of Girl Scout Week with the Governor, local City Council, Mayor, or other elected officials.
