We know you’ve got a lot going on—soccer practice, band rehearsals, drama club meetings and, oh yeah, that little thing called school. It all keeps you super busy, 24/7.
So we came up with a way for you to create your own Girl Scout experience, one that fits your interests and your schedule.
Series are short-term programs that run for all or parts of the
year. Any registered girl who is the correct age for the program can
participate regardless of other ways they participate in Girl Scouts.
Let us know if you have an idea about a Series you would like to
There are tons of fun things to do in Girl Scouts—and now it’s easier than ever to work them into your super-charged life.
Girls Rock the Capitol - Seniors and Ambassadors
Every year Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains invites girls ages 15 - 18 to join our Girls Rock the Capitol Program as interns! Girls work side-by-side with female state legislators in Vermont and New Hampshire to get a behind-the-scenes look at state government, learn about advocacy, and how to enact change in the world. This year's program will follow the It's Your World-Change It Journey. Interns must be articulate, mature, and interested in advocacy or political service. Interns must be able to fully participate on all State House days, as well as training and evaluation. This commitment includes, but is not limited to, a fall weekend training session, an overnight at the state capitol, and attending legislative sessions. Applications are due by October 31. Interview will be conducted the first week of November.
Jump-In is a week-long jump roping series for girls K-5 coached by trained teens and supervised by adult coordinators. Grab your sneakers and try seven different types of jumping!

Time Travelers - Cadette, Senior, Ambassador

it! In this series we will visit women's history sites around new
England as well as learn skills traditionally practiced by women in
the past. Celebrate the spirited, independent women who have made a
significant difference in our world. Find your voice as you work with
other girls to create our group schedule of activities. Develop your
leadership skills by sharing these experiences with younger girls at
Laura Wilder Weekend each spring and fall. Series meets throughout the

Program Aide (PA) - Grades 6 - 12
Do you love working with kids? Put your passion into action as we explore the basics of leadership skills needed to work with younger Girl Scouts. Learn the characteristics of younger girls, practice planning an activity, and find out what it takes to help out at council events. This course will strengthen your leadership skills and girls will learn techniques on how to share what they've learned with others. Program Aide training allows you to work with younger girl troops, take specialized training for Jump-In, Coastal Rompers, Time Travelers (Laura Wilder Weekend), camp, events, and so much more.
Upcoming Program Aide training for the 2016-2017 school year is
April 8 at Camp Farnsworth.
Swift Water Paddlers
Cadettes through Ambassadors may apply to join our championship
canoe-racing team! No canoeing experience necessary! The team
practices at Camp Kettleford March - June with competitions in both
May and June.
Coastal Rompers are older Girl Scouts devoted to marine education
and conservation. When first organized in September 1996, Girl Scouts
of middle and high-school age were already training to deliver a
tide-pooling oriented program (Distovery Weekend) to younger Girl
Scouts. Joining Coastal Rompers offers older Girl Scouts opportunities
to engage in activities with their peers as well, including visiting
aquariums, marine laboratories, and exploring beaches and intertidal
pools. As a community service project, each year this group directs
other Girl Scout troops/groups and adult volunteers in beach clean-ups
in the fall.
Coastal Rompers currently lead Discovery Weekend (camping at Camp
Seawood) and Trees, the Sea, and Me (at the Urban Forestry Center).
They also serve as tide pooling guides for Girl Scouts near and far,
guiding groups of Girl Scouts from all over the US for Girl Scout
councils outside of NH and VT.
