(Chris DeLong, LODGE REPRESENTATIVE)
Girl Scouts of the USA is the largest organization for girls in the world and was charted by United States Congress in 1950. Girl Scouts empowers girls and helps teach values such as honesty, fairness, courage, compassion, character, sisterhood, confidence, and citizenship through activities including camping, community service, learning first aid, and earning badges by acquiring practical skills. The Girl Scout mission is to build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. Girls experience activities in science and technology, business economic literacy, outdoor and environment awareness, fun and friendships while at the same time foster development of leadership and self-esteem.
