Girl Scout Programs

Our Education staff has designed a program of exciting, skill-building Girl Scout programs for Fall 2016-Spring 2017 to provide fun, interesting opportunities for girls to earn badges.

Have Fun with SWAPS, September 17

Will your group be attending a large Girl Scout event this year? Make it even more fun and meaningful by creating SWAPS together that you can take along.

Join us at the History Center to make several SWAP pins that you can take with you to events.
