You Can't Stop Girl Scouts!

No one wants to “press pause” on Girl Scouts, and we’re here to help your girl continue to learn, build skills, and make new friends through virtual programming. Because no, you #CantStopGirlScouts. Be unstoppable. Be a Girl Scout.

GSWPA At-Home Activities for Girls

We've been so excited to see how you're continuing Girl Scouts while you’re at home. Send pictures and videos of your girls working on virtual activities to socialmedia@gswpa.org or on Facebook messenger. We’ll be sharing your pictures and videos on our social media channels, and you can, too! Use #CantStopGirlScouts.

Patch Programs
