Discover what makes Girl Scouts the world’s premier leadership development organization for girls! At our fun, free, and hands-on Discover Girl Scouts events, you and your girl are invited to begin a lifetime of adventure!

Discover Girl Scouts events are designed specifically for families like yours who are looking for an introduction to Girl Scouts. Your family will meet friendly Girl Scout team members who are ready to answer all your questions about programs, camp, and the Girl Scout Leadership Experience.

Plus, your girl can dive into fun activities that showcase each pillar of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, including STEM, Life Skills, Entrepreneurship, and the Outdoors.

At Girl Scouts, girls do BIG things that make a difference in their community and their world.
