Girl Scouts of Connecticut invites new and returning members to experience its leadership programs.

In addition to joining troops, girls may enter Scouts as an individual member and participate in a series, events, travel or summer camps throughout the state. Every Girl Scout, no matter how she enters the program, will benefit from the Girl Scout Leadership Experience. Girl Scouts learn leadership qualities and skills such as self-esteem, positive values, critical thinking, and community spirit through fun, educational activities.

From a Girl Scout Daisy in kindergarten learning about her environment and making new friends, to a Girl Scout ambassador in high school interested in traveling to Washington, D.C., and attending an energy expo, the program will help girls discover themselves and their values and connect with others.

Additionally, as a girl-led organization, the members work with adult mentors to help determine which activities they are interested in and will best suit their needs. Girl Scouts of Connecticut relies on volunteers to make many of the programs and activities possible.
