What do Girl Scouts do?
The answer is almost anything a girl would like to do!
The Girl Scout program is girl-driven, reflecting the ever-changing needs and interests of participating girls. It provides girls ages 5-17 with a wide variety of opportunities and activities available in the Girl's Guide to Girl Scouting, Journey books and other program resources.
The program encourages increased skill-building and responsibility, and also promotes the development of strong leadership and decision-making skills. All program activities are age-appropriate and based on the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, as well as on the Girl Scout Promise and Law.

Every girl who registers as a Girl Scout can enjoy the many activities organized by Girl Scouts of Eastern South Carolina. Our Girl Scout council offers activities that meet the needs and interests of girls within their jurisdictions. Some program activities are shared by all Girl Scouts; others may only be available locally, require girls to apply, or be restricted by age.
No matter what age, girls learn the value and the fun of sharing experiences in an all-girl environment, with caring, trained adults to serve as mentors and models. All activities are designed with girls in mind to spark their interests, address their concerns, build their skills, and explore the world around them.
