Girl Scout Juniors (Grade 4-5)

Explorations, Fun, and Best Friends Forever

Being a Girl Scout is about having fun and making friends, but it's more than that. Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place.

Tired of the same old stuff? Girl Scout Juniors get to try new things!

What Juniors Learn

Girl Scout Juniors enjoy sports, outdoor fun, trips, drama and more. Girls get the opportunity to make new friends, your own decisions, work with other girls and learn through doing.

The Girl's Guide to Girl Scouting

Everyone knows that Girl Scouts have badges. But The Girl's Guide to Girl Scouting has more than just exciting, new badges for every age level. Each guide contains:

  • A colorful, easy-to-use binder specially designed for girls at each level. The binder comes chock full of essential information and badge activities—plus girls get to customize their own experience by choosing and adding in additional badge sets.
  • Legacy, Financial Literacy, and Cookie Business badge activities-or, for Girl Scout Daisies, petal and leaf activities.
  • A detailed diagram showing where girls place the badges, pins, or awards with pride on their vests or sashes.
  • Ideas to help girls tie their badges right into theirJourneys.
  • Vintage illustrations and quotes from Girl Scout history to help girls feel connected to the proud traditions of the past.
  • An awards log showing girls every award and badge available at their level, as well as the entire badge program at every level, so girls can see how their skills will grow in Girl Scouting.

Uniforms

Girl Scout Juniors can wear the Girl Scout Membership Pin, showing they belong to Girl Scouts of the USA, and the World Trefoil Pin, signifying their membership in a worldwide movement. Girls can wear the Girl Scout Junior vest or sash to display their Journey Awards, badges, participation patches and other insignia.

Troop Leaders

Girl Scout Juniors may belong to a troop guided by leaders, community volunteers, who are parents or other adults trained by the local Girl Scout council. Leaders partner with girls as they explore new opportunities, learn decision-making skills, and gain the confidence to be trailblazers in service to their communities. They are encouraged to recruit Troop Committee members (parents) who help with transportation, snacks, product sales, record keeping, telephone calls and where needed.
