What is Girl Scout Week?

GS Week Wear it Share it Image

Each March, Girl Scouts around the globe get together to celebrate what it means to be a Girl Scout. The Week kicks off with Girl Scout Sunday and ends with the Girl Scout Sabbath on Saturday. In the middle? Girl Scouts’ Birthday, March 12!

While there’s no wrong way to celebrate Girl Scout Week, we plan a few special activities each year. Check in each day on our Facebook page to see what we have planned.
