Girl Scout Traditions and Celebrations:

Traditions and Ceremonies   Girl Scout Week - March 10th - 16th:

Girl Scout Week is celebrated each March, starting with Girl Scout Sunday and ending with Girl Scout Sabbath on a Saturday, and it always includes the Girl Scout Birthday, March 12.

Girl Scout Birthday, March 12, commemorates the day in 1912 when Juliette Gordon Low officially registered the organization's first 18 girl members in Savannah, Georgia.  

 Girl Scout Sunday and Girl Scout Sabbath give girls an opportunity to attend their place of worship and be recognized as a Girl Scout. If a place of worship is the group sponsor, girls may perform a service, such as greeting, ushering, or doing a flag ceremony. These days can also be a time when girls explore other faiths.Check with your church and see what you can do to help out.

Basic Ceremony Examples:

Candle Ceremony                  Daisy Investiture Ceremony       

Brownie Story                      Brownie - "Twist me, Turn Me " story

Nick Naming Ceremony            Investiture/Re-dedication Ceremony
