We have created many unique experiences for our elite “older girls.” Programs and travel that become more adventurous, intriguing, focused and engaging, and opportunities you never imagined would present themselves. Visit our program calendar to see what’s in store for you next!

Older Girl Programs

Counselor-in-Training (CIT)

Take a Program Aide into the great outdoors and you’ve got a Counselor-in-Training! With so many camps and programs across the state, you will become one with nature and make gobs of friends…some of the eight-legged variety. If you love being outside and helping make things run smoothly, we want you!

CIT I

Begin your outdoor mentorship training with CIT I, which is for Girl Scout Seniors. Earn this award by participating in a leadership course offered during the summer, and work with younger girls during a camp session. Search our program calendar for upcoming CIT sessions.

CIT II

CIT II is for Girl Scout Ambassadors who have completed CIT I. Participants mentor younger girls over the course of at least one camp session while honing skills in a specific area, like horseback riding instruction, lifeguarding, arts, or outdoor camping. Complete the application form and get one step closer to becoming an amazing camp counselor!

If you qualify as a Counselor-in-Training II, please apply for your CIT II session by July 23, 2021.

Program Aide (PA)

Program Aide is a prestigious position. You will be a volunteer extraordinaire and have access to many opportunities. Council events, troop meetings and fun with Daisies and Brownies, who fondly look up to their older Sister Scouts. Prepare to sing, play, plan and rule the world (or maybe just a little corner of it).

Real Life Academy

Real Life Academy is a fun spin on the "Game of Life" that offers practical, life-skill based experiences. Explore your proposed career and lifestyle through workshops that focus on budgeting, personal brand development, and goal setting-with an underlying root in financial literacy.

You will independently save $250 or more through money-earning activities and have the opportunity to earn a $1,000 scholarship for Girl Scout travel or college. You will complete three in-person work study job shadows with a mentor working in your chosen field. This program is sponsored by Union Bank & Trust.
