Girl Scout Junior: Grades 4-5

Good Times, Best Friends!

Girl Scout Juniors have fun with friends while discovering what girl power is all about! As a Girl Scout Junior, you will choose the activities you want to try and learn to take charge of your own plans. As you become an expert in things like horses, computers and music & theater, you will earn badges to wear on your sash or vest if you wish, but uniforms are not required. Leaders know that girls your age are really busy and will help you fit meetings and activities into your schedule. Juniors can also participate in other Girl Scout Pathways and do not have to be part of a troop.

Girls now have three series of National Leadership Journeys to choose from! It's Your World - Change It, It's Your Planet - Love It, and It's Your Story - Tell It! On every Leadership Journey, everything girls do—whether it's performing science experiments, creating art projects, cooking simple meals, or learning to protect the planet's water supply—is aimed at giving them the benefits of the Girl Scout "Keys to Leadership": Discover, Connect, Take Action. Learn about all the Girl Scout Journeys here
