On this day, we honor our founder, Juliette Gordon Low, and her vision "for the girls of Savannah, and all America, and all the world."



Here are some ways you can celebrate the Girl Scout Birthday (March 12) and Girl Scout Week (the week in which March 12 falls):
Discover Girl Scout history.

Find out how Girl Scout uniforms have changed through the years.

Learn about Juliette Gordon Low.

Wear your Girl Scout uniform or pin.
Have a Girl Scout birthday party.

Act out the story of the first meeting in 1912, imagining what it would have been like to be there.

Draw or write about your own dreams and plan how you will make a difference in the world as Juliette Low did.

Catalina Island Marine Institute (CIMI) Open House/Information Meeting, February 18 in Salt Lake



Come join us at an Open House to learn about the Catalina Island Marine Institute Trip! This trip is an amazing opportunity for 6th-12th grade Girl Scouts to learn how to snorkel, attend a swim party, and then travel to California to experience several days of fun led by the CIMI staff with snorkeling, hands-on marine biology, and awesome evening programs. The trip also includes an exciting behind the scenes tour and sleepover at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, California and dinner at the acclaimed Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. This is a truly amazing opportunity for girls!

Come learn about it at the Open House!  Pizza will be served and girls who have been on the trip will be there to tell you all about it!
