Girl Scout Week

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

Girl Scout Birthday: March 12

The Girl Scout Birthday on March 12 commemorates the day in 1912 when Juliette Gordon Low officially registered the organization’s first 18 girl members in Savannah, Georgia. This year, 2016, represents our 104th birthday!


Girl Scout Sunday: March 6 and Girl Scout Sabbath: March 12

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.

Host a Milk & Cookie Reception to Celebrate Girl Scouts!

After worship service, your troop could host a Girl Scouts Milk & Cookies reception to celebrate Girl Scout Week. Troops donate GS cookies & milk for the reception, and can sell cookies too. Make sure your table also has literature talking about joining or volunteering with Girl Scouts. GSCCC resources can be found here.

Contact your local church to set the date today!
