Because Girls Just Want to Have Fun!

Girls often celebrate holidays during their troop meetings with parties, crafts and games and participating in parades has become a don’t-miss opportunity to recognize special days during the year.

There are four official scout holidays:

  • World Thinking Day*, Feb 22nd, a special day for girls from around the world to “think” of each other often celebrated with a big event.
  • Scout Birthday, March 12th, celebrates the anniversary of the first troop meeting and includes Scout Sunday* and Scout Sabbath*
  • Leader Appreciation Day, April 22nd, an opportunity to show appreciation to leaders and other volunteers for their dedication to their troop or service unit.
  • Founder’s Day, October 31st, Juliette Gordon Low’s birthday, founder of scouts in the USA.

New girls and troops celebrating Founder’s Day or Scout Birthday will want to learn about Juliette Gordon Low, the founder of scouts in the United States of America.

Never miss an opportunity to have fun with your girls. Every day is a good day to have have fun!
