Girl Scout Mission: Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.
Membership in Girl Scouts is open to girls in grades K through 8. Girls join for fun and friendship, but they also learn about building character and self-esteem and serving their communities—the core qualities of Girl Scouting. In partnership with committed adults, girls develop qualities that will serve them a lifetime – like strong values, social conscience, and conviction about their own potential.
Come join us…. The fun is just beginning! Here is a sampling of some of our recent activities:
- Christmas Service Projects for Gift of Mary Center Holiday Luncheon
- April Showers
- Girl Scout Cookie Time!
- Scouting Sunday Mass
- Badge Jamboree
- Horseback Riding
- Neighborhood Bowling Party
- Field Trips to fun places like California Pizza Kitchen, Brentwood Firehouse, Magic House, and Missouri Botanical Gardens
- Camping – both overnight and day camp
- And so much more!
The 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.
The 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 be a sister to every Girl Scout.
*The Girl Scout Promise and Law are shared by every member of Girl Scouting. The Girl Scout Promise is the way Girl Scouts agree to act every day toward one another and other people, and the Girl Scout Law outlines a way to act towards one another and the world.
