A Girl Scout journey represents a fun and challenging way that girls can experience Girl Scouting over a series of sessions (usually six to eight, but with the potential to last far longer).
Journey books take girls at every grade level through a series of Discover, Connect, and Take Action experiences, with emphasis on inviting girls to Take Action on issues they care about. These books also contain stories; inspirational ideas; information about Girl Scout history, traditions and values; facts and games; and provide space for girls to collect their own ideas and memories.
Take a look at this interactive map with ideas about how to tie your Girl Scout activities into your journey.
Statement of Trust
Girl Scouts of the USA creates national program materials to serve our vast and diverse community of girls. To help bring topics “off the page and into life,” we sometimes provide girls — and their volunteers — with suggestions about what people across the country and around the world are doing, as well as movies, books, music, web pages, and more that might spark girl interest.
At Girl Scouts of the USA, we know that not every example or suggestion we provide will work for every girl, family, volunteer, or community.
In partnership with those who assist you with your Girl Scout group, including parents, faith groups, schools, and community organizations, we trust you to choose “real life topic experts” from your community, as well as movies, books, music, websites and other opportunities most appropriate for the girls in your area and that will enrich their Girl Scout activities.
Thank you for all you do to bring the Girl Scout Leadership Experience to life with girls, so that they become leaders in their own lives—and the future leaders the world needs!
