When a girl says, “I can’t wait to…” you know she’s psyched about what she’s about to say. Whether it’s a field trip, a game or a movie, that wide-eyed anticipation is one of the best parts of childhood. At Girl Scouts, girls are always counting down to the next adventure they’ll go on together. Maybe it’s artistic. Maybe it’s an experiment. Maybe it’s getting outside or helping the community. With Girl Scouts, girls make a bunch of new friends and have a ton of new experiences.
From September 30 to October 6 is a new national movement by Girl Scouting – the National “I can’t wait to join Girl Scouts” Week. Check out a local Girl Scout open house event that is open to all interested girls in K-12 grades and their parents/caretakers:

“Throughout the many years I have been in Girl Scouting many people have influenced me positively and the entire experience in and of itself has influenced me positively. My mother has stood by me as a leader and a role model throughout my Girl Scouting experience, and I would like to thank her for that. Girl Scouting has left me with so many memories…” ~ Erin Widener, Salem Girl Scout
