Girl Scouts

The Girl Scout program is based on the Girl Scout Promise and Law.  It is also based on four fundamental goals that encourage girls to:

Develop to their full potential.
Relate to others with increasing understanding, skill, and respect.
Develop a meaningful set of values to guide their actions and to provide for sound decision-making.
Contribute to the improvement of society.

Age Levels

Daisy Girl Scouts (ages 5-6)
Brownie Girl Scouts (ages 6-8)
Junior Girl Scouts (ages 8-11)
STUDIO 2B (ages 11-17)

Troop Structure

In addition to the Girl Scouts, troops are registered with two adults serving as co-leaders (or a leader and assistant leader).  

In some troops, the families all share in the leadership (planning and carrying out activities). In this case, adults register as troop committee members with one serving as the coordinator.

Black Hawk Council of Girl Scouts

The Girl Scouts of Badgerland Council, Inc. is made up of several  communities that help with the administration of the Girl Scouts within our council. Each community has a volunteer chairperson who holds leader meetings. These meetings take place several times a year and are used to distribute information, conduct trainings, and plan Girl Scouting in the area.

Girl Scouts of the USA and the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS)

Girl Scouts of the USA is the world's largest organization dedicated to helping girls everywhere build character and gain skills for success in the real world. In an accepting and nurturing environment, and in partnership with committed adult volunteers, girls develop strong values, leadership skills, social conscience, and conviction about their own potential and self-worth that will serve them all their lives.

Founded in 1912 by Juliette Gordon Low, Girl Scouts' membership has grown from 18 members in Savannah, Georgia, to nearly four million members throughout the United States, including Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, and in more than 80 countries through USA Girl Scouts Overseas.
