Magical baking and more online

Girl Scouts can also choose badges or Journeys for their age level, working at their own pace over five weeks. Younger girls can learn about being a good neighbor and good citizen, while older girls may choose a Journey series on helping keep the Earth healthy, nutrition, and justice.

Even more opportunities
When there's space for her imagination to grow, there's no stopping where she'll go. As a Girl Scout, your girl will dream big, belong to a sisterhood, and explore her world through hands-on adventures. Whether she’s watching a shooting star in the sky, creating her own art, or making new friends, as a Girl Scout, with the guidance and support of caring adult volunteers by her side, she’ll grow with her troop as the girls discover, imagine, and create together.
Girl Scouts are invited to participate in person or online, as part of a troop or as an individual. Explore the possibilities. See www.girlscoutsgwm.org.
We Are Girl Scouts
Girl Scouts bring their dreams to life and work together to build a better world. Through programs from coast to coast, Girl Scouts of all backgrounds and abilities can be unapologetically themselves as they discover their strengths and rise to meet new challenges—whether they want to climb to the top of a tree or the top of their class, lace up their boots for a hike or advocate for climate justice, or make their first best friends. Backed by trusted adult volunteers, mentors, and millions of alums, Girl Scouts lead the way as they find their voices and make changes that affect the issues most important to them. To join us, volunteer, reconnect, or donate, visit girlscouts.org.
Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains serves girls throughout New Hampshire and Vermont through volunteer-run troops, events, and virtual programs. Visit www.girlscoutsgwm.org to learn more.
