With nonstop adventure at every turn, Girl Scouts always have great, inspiring stories to tell.
Whether they’re taking on awesome change-the-world service projects, going on life-altering trips to incredible places, or having BIG outdoor fun and forging “forever friendships,” the excitement of learning something new and building a lifetime of memories is remarkable—and the stories of girls, volunteers, parents, and alumnae are a true testament to the power of the Girl Scout experience.
