Homeschool Girl Scouting

Parent Volunteer and Girl Scout

There are many ways girls can take part in Girl Scouts! Depending on their free time and interests, they can register individually, as part of an interest group, or join a troop. If a girl registers individually, she may want to take part in one or two group events, like camp or a Council-wide event. The flexibility is a perfect fit for families that homeschool. Plus, the content of all Girl Scout national proficiency badges and journeys have been correlated by grade level to national Common Core Standards, 21st Century Skills Standards, Financial Literacy Education Standards, and curriculum such as Health and PE, Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies learning objectives for all 50 states and the District of Columbia. You can “mix and match” Girl Scout badges with the curriculum you are using!

What caregivers have to say about Girl Scouts and homeschooling

"I’ve learned over the years that the badge work in Girl Scouts goes quite nicely with homeschool lessons! My daughter and her homeschool friends have also loved working on their robotics and cybersecurity badges. The events hosted by Girl Scouts enhance the badge work that are incorporated into homeschool lessons." - Cindy Weaver

"We've used a lot of Girl Scout badges to complete [study] requirements. No more complaining about homework!" - U. Winston

"The best part for me, as a homeschool mom, is that the badges are fun, organized activities that require little or no preparation. Badges are open-and-go, they are self-paced, they can be completed together or individually, and they are full of choices. The only hard part is deciding which badge to earn first!" - Southern Van Auken, from our blog: Girl Scouts Bridges Fun and Learning for Homeschooled Girls in Grades K-12
