Girl Scout Week is celebrated each March, starting with Girl Scout Sunday and it always includes the Girl Scout Birthday, March 12th which commemorates the day in 1912 when Juliette Gordon Low officially registered the organization’s first 18 girl members in Savannah, Georgia.
This year, 2019, represents Girl Scouts’ 107th birthday!
Here are some ideas on how to celebrate each day of Girl Scout Week
- Sunday - Participate in a religious service, earn the “My Promise, My Faith” pin, or serve God or your country in your own way.
- Monday - Give back to your community by volunteering with a local organization. Volunteer your time or donate items to a cause you support.
- Tuesday - Throw a birthday for Girl Scouts! Celebrate with birthday cake, party games, and more. Invite your sister Girl Scouts and friends who are not yet Girl Scouts. Ask all of your guests to bring a birthday gift to donate to a local charity.
- Wednesday - Complete a badge related to science, technology, engineering, or math. Think outside the box and find a new way to do something. Share your idea with other Girl Scout sisters or your family.
- Thursday - Wear your Girl Scout uniform or Girl Scout swag to school or around town. Share your photos on social media using the hashtag #GirlScoutSpirit. Get permission from your school to wear your Girl Scout uniform or a Girl Scout t-shirt to school.
- Friday - Get together and go outdoors to do an activity and learn one of the basic camping skills- outdoor manners, dressing for the outdoors, knots, knives, fire building, outdoor cooking, first aid, campsite setup.
- Saturday - Attend a religious service AND wear your Girl Scout uniform. Say or sing grace at a meal. Or show your love for our planet by participating in a recycling program or community trash event.
