Girl Scouts provides experiences that will challenge you – helping you figure out what you want to do with your life,
taking you to incredible places, and bringing you to new heights of personal achievement.
There are six Pathways for you to be involved in Girl Scouts:
Camp | Events | Series | Travel | Troop | Virtual
The Troop Pathway is the traditional way girls have participated in Girl Scouts. Troops are still very popular and a wonderful way to be involved, however, there is no one way to participate in Girl Scouts. You have your own options and choices on how YOU want to experience Girl Scouts. You may start on one Pathway and change your mind and take part in another. Or, you may decide to participate in more than one Pathway. The first step is simply being a girl who wants to make choices about her leadership path. Mix and match based on your interests and create your own journey filled with wonderful adventures!
