For more than 100 years, Girl Scouts has built girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place.
In Girl Scouts, girls discover the fun, friendship, and power of girls together. Through a myriad of enriching experiences, such as extraordinary field trips, sports skill-building clinics, community service projects, cultural exchanges, and environmental stewardships, girls grow courageous and strong. Girl Scouting helps girls develop their full individual potential; relate to others with increasing understanding, skill, and respect; develop values to guide their actions and provide the foundation for sound decision-making; and contribute to the improvement of society through their abilities, leadership skills, and cooperation with others.
St. Bonaventure has several Girl Scout troops, but Girl Scouting is not just for your daughters. Adult volunteers (leaders, co-leaders & troop assistants) are an essential part of this program. Girls from K-12th grades can be Girl Scouts. St. Bonaventure troops and troops at nearby public schools are part of the Royal Palm Service Unit. Leaders and co-leaders meet once a month to determine program activities that troops in the unit are encouraged to participate in.
If you have any questions please contact our local council.
Registration for the new year of Girl Scouts begins in September. If you register online before September, then your registration is for the current year, ending September 30th.

Girl Scouts earn badges, hike and camp, participate in the cookie program, and much more. They improve neighborhoods, protect the planet, design robots, and establish sports clinics.
Girls then add The Girl's Guide to Girl Scouting to their program portfolio. The Girl's Guide offers girls national proficiency badges, traditions and history, an awards log, and much more. For complete information about what girls from kindergarten through high school do in Girl Scouts and the awards they can earn, please see the main Program page.
Volunteers will find it helpful to talk to their Girl Scout councils about handy resources including Volunteer Essentials —a guide for Girl Scout adults—and Girl Scouting 101, the online orientation. To locate the council nearest you, see the Girl Scout Council Finder.
