Your Juniors are Ready to Take it Up a Notch!

This is an age when girls might consider leaving Girl Scouts. Often their schedules are full and you may feel that you are competing for their time. The key to keeping Juniors committed is keeping them interested. That might require a monthly trip, overnighters, experimenting with art supplies or all of the above. Let your girls decide. Whatever they choose, you will find everything you need here.

Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook. We have a helpful community of more than 15,000 leaders who are always ready to help. You don’t want to miss the coupons either!
