Event Guide

for Girl Scout Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors


I can’t wait to When you just can’t wait for what you’ll do next, you can do anything. At Girl Scouts, there are endless ways to turn boring days into days you’ll remember all your life. If you can think it, chances are you can do it in Girl Scouts. Use this Event Guide to find Girl Scout activities, adventures and leadership opportunities in your neighborhood or in the Girl Scouts of Wisconsin Southeast community. Girls can attend events on their own or with a friend. If a girl is in a Girl Scout troop and attends meetings a few times a month, she might also attend events with her troop and the volunteer chaperones. Individually Registered Girls (girls not assigned to a troop) can attend events on their own or with a friend. Volunteers like parents are needed to manage troops, and with the support of all families, we are able to fulfill our promise of providing committed, dedicated women and men to guide girls on their Girl Scout adventures.

So what are you waiting for? Start your adventure now.

Girl Scout Mission Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.

Girl Scout Promise On my honor, I will try: To serve God* and my country, To help people at all times, And to live by the Girl Scout Law.

Girl Scout Law I will do my best to be honest and fair, friendly and helpful, considerate and caring, courageous and strong, and responsible for what I say and do, and to respect myself and others, respect authority, use resources wisely, make the world a better place, and to be a sister to every Girl Scout. * The word “God” can be interpreted in a number of ways, depending on one’s spiritual beliefs. When reciting the Girl Scout Promise, it is okay to replace the word “God” with whatever word your spiritual beliefs dictate.

Frequently Asked Questions What will I do as a Girl Scout? Whether she is in a troop or individually registered, she can do anything. The activities in this event guide provide a variety of fun, engaging, and educational events that empower girls to discover who they are, connect with others, and take action to make the world a better place.

What Girl Scout grade level am I? Today’s Girl Scout program is customized to provide activities that match the interests and abilities of girls at six different grade levels. With award winning resources developed to tackle topics relevant to today’s girls, the program is designed to meet the needs of our ever-changing world. Each level of Girl Scouts has a specific uniform. Grades K-1 Grades 2-3 Grades 4-5 Grades 6-8 Grades 9-10 Grades 11-12

Girl Scout Daisies Girl Scout Brownies Girl Scout Juniors Girl Scout Cadettes Girl Scout Seniors Girl Scout Ambassadors

How much will Girl Scouts cost? National membership dues are $15, which goes directly to Girl Scouts of the USA. Girl Scouts who belong to troops may also be asked to collect dues to help offset additional costs of planned activities. Financial assistance is available for girl and adult members to offset the fees for membership, girl uniforms, Journey books, troop dues, and council sponsored events.

Will I be able to sell Girl Scout Cookies? Yes! When a Girl Scout sells cookies, she’s doing more than just handing customers a box. She’s creating a plan, interacting with customers, and working as part of a team. She’s building a lifetime of skills and confidence. She is also earning Program Activity Credits which will help pay for her Girl Scout activities. Information regarding the Cookie Program Activity will be mailed to families in December.

What should I get? Girl Scouts of Wisconsin Southeast has four Resource Centers (Girl Scout Shops) for your convenience. Uniforms, Girl Scout Resources, and a fun assortment of Girl Scout merchandise, badges and patches are available at each location.

Girl Guides If I participate as an individual Girl Scout, how will I receive future Girl Scout communication? Individually registered girls receive information on future events, camp, and product program activities like the Fall Nut Sale and Girl Scout Cookie Program Activity throughout the year by mail and email.

Volunteer with Girl Scouts Share this with an adult

Volunteers make every day her best day ever It starts with one day, one meeting, and one role model that shows her she can accomplish more than she ever imagined. At Girl Scouts, we want every girl to feel so excited about her future that she can hardly wait for it, because she knows she can achieve anything she sets her mind to. That feeling starts with you. As a Girl Scout volunteer, you’ll introduce girls to new experiences that make every day the best day ever.
