Girl Scouts at Home
As Girl Scouts, we practice leadership skills each day, but especially during unprecedented times like this. The safety and well-being of our members is our top priority as we all navigate through the COVID-19 situation together. While we ask that all members continue to follow the guidance of the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and our local health officials, we want to deliver the opportunity for Girl Scouts to continue at home.
Below you'll find more information on how girls, families, and troop leaders can continue to participate in Girl Scouts at home or online.
Wondering how to talk to your Girl Scout about coronavirus? Read this Raising Awesome Girls article from GSUSA for tips.
