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.
It’s a big universe – learn all about it! Soar to the stars with educational materials and astronomy events both virtual and in person with COVID-19 guidelines. Meet professional and amateur astronomers who will help you learn even more about the wonders of astronomy.
To participate, log in to MYGS and join the Astronomy troop.
Canoe Team: Paddlers
Join our championship canoe-racing team - no canoe experience
necessary! Learn the basics, try a competition, explore sprints, relay
teams, white water, in-water canoe switches and build lifetime
friendships! Lead a booth activity at G.I.R.L. Expo and lead a
workshop at the Older Girl Conference in September.
Canoe practices March - May and competes in the Great Smith River Regatta in New Hampshire in mid May and the General Clinton Regatta in New York in late May as team decides.
Coastal Rompers is a Girl Scout troop devoted to marine education and conservation. Since the fall of 1996, when the group first organized, Girl Scout has been training girls in middle school and high school to lead Discovery Weekends, a program to introduce younger Girl Scouts to the world of tide-pooling. Coastal Rompers provides older girls with opportunities to participate in marine-related activities with their peers, including visiting aquariums and marine laboratories, and exploring beaches and intertidal areas. As a community service activity, Coastal Rompers and adult volunteers participate in beach cleanups.
Discovery training introduces the concept of teamwork, as trainees work together to set common goals and anticipate issues to be dealt with. More experienced and mature Coastal Rompers train new members. Coastal Rompers then augments this training by conducting field trips, much enjoyed by the membership. They visit aquariums, sandy beaches, rocky shores, and tidal creeks; explore the tide pools at Odiorne Point; sail on a restored gundalow; and offer a research vessel cruise to Shoals Marine Laboratory – the largest field marine station devoted to undergraduate marine studies in North America, only six miles off the New Hampshire mainland shore. Coastal Rompers are, for the most part, hands-on and in the field.

FIRST LEGO League
FIRST® LEGO® League introduces science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) to children ages 4-16 through fun, exciting, hands-on learning.

Their three divisions inspire youth to experiment and grow their critical thinking, coding, and design skills through hands-on STEM learning and robotics.

Girls Rock the Capitol
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. Interns must be articulate, mature, and interested in advocacy or political service. Interns must be able to fully participate in State House days as well as training, evaluation, program events, and regular check-ins with the program leader and the other participants. This commitment includes, but is not limited to: the fall retreat training session on December 7, 5 legislative sessions, the Learn to Lead: Girl Legislative Day in May, and a final retreat in June (date TBD). See the application for more details.
Applications are due by October 31. Interviews will be conducted the second week of November.
Hop, skip, and jump into fun! Try a new kind of jump roping every day (long rope, Double Dutch, partner, tinikiling, and more!) while you dance, play games, and make new friends. This weeklong series is for girls K-5, coached by teens and supervised by adult coordinators. Jump-In Week is July 13-17, 2020, at Camp Twin Hills in Richmond, VT. Register online under our Camp tab.
Jump-In coach training takes place July 6-17, 2020, at Camp Twin Hills in Richmond, VT. Coaches spend the first week training as coaches and the second week leading a group of Jump-In girls.

Jump-In coaches are girls who will start grade 6 in the fall of 2020 and older. You must complete Program Aide training to coach over the summer. Application is below.
Through a series of guest speakers, girls will learn about all different types of media and then be able to cover many of our Girl Scout events. See your name in print, tweet to the world, be the behind the scene photographer, it's up to you. Each girls journey in this series will be different! Girls will be grouped to work with other girls of the same age group on projects.
