Traditions give Girl Scouts a sense of history—and inspire them to be the best they can be while paving the future! Sharing traditions with millions of Girl Scouts—and the huge network of Girl Scout alumnae who came before them—helps remind girls that they belong to a big, powerful, and inclusive sisterhood. One of our favorite traditions is Girl Scout Week! Each Girl Scout week starts with Girl Scout Sunday and ends with Girl Scout Sabbath, and it always includes Girl Scouts’ birthday, March 12.
In 2021, our program team has created free and fun events to help celebrate what makes Girl Scouts unique!

During Girl Scout Week, many troops celebrate with their faith communities! Girls are recognized for their accomplishments in our program in their faith community. Find out more about religious awards in Girl Scouts and download social media graphics, content for congregation resources, and bulletin inserts for promoting the connection between your faith community and Girl Scouts.
If your troop is doing anything special for Girl Scout Week, email details and photos to Marcomm@GirlScoutsToday.org to be featured on social media.
