Daily Girl Scout Videos

Girl Scout as a family! Each day on our Facebook page, you can look forward to short clips of Girl Scout history, singing along to camp songs, or other ways we’re Girl Scouting at Home. Every video will highlight something new and spark conversation about your girl’s favorite activities in Girl Scouts. We can’t wait to see you there! 

Community Impact

Neighborhood Clean-Up

Girl Scouts across Central Texas are uniting from their own neighborhoods to clean up and take care of the outdoors. 

While social distancing and keeping 6 feet from neighbors, girls can safely take walks through their neighborhood to pick up trash. 

The entire family is welcome to join the fun, taking pictures of your impact on the community. Once your girl is done, dispose of the trash properly and then tell us about your adventure! 

Weekly Challenge

March 23-29 Challenge:  Texas Plant Bingo

Once your girl has completed the challenge, let us know! We want to hear about the awesome time you had together and what she accomplished.
