Senior Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting

The Girl's Guide to Girl Scouting is a badge and handbook in one great binder for girls. It includes badges and handbook sections covering traditions and history, Cookie Badges, awards log, accessory pages, and more.

The Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting will work with national leadership journeys to add skill-building to the leadership skills girls learn through the three keys of Discover, Connect, and Take Action.

Journeys are the only program resources that cover all 15 outcomes. Badges build specific skills and are primarily aimed at the Discover “Girls develop a strong sense of self" outcome. National leadership journeys and The Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting make up the National Program Portfolio.

The Senior National Proficiency badges are filled with fun ways to learn new skills or dig deeper into topics girls are already interested in. Any badge skills that girls learned as a younger Girl Scout will be used now and every badge earned right now will prepare for the exciting challenges of a Girl Scout Ambassador!

If Seniors earn the Cross-Training badge, for example, they will know a wide variety of sports skills that might be put into play as an Ambassador Coach. And when girls know what to say as a Voice for Animals, they can speak out when at behind the scenes of Public Policy!

  • Sow What?

    Sow What?

    Seniors investigate the food network (no not cable TV - the real one that puts food on the table). As they ponder land use around the world (corn's a big issue!), girls get down to the science and roots of complex and global food issues.

  • Mission: Sisterhood!

    Mission: Sisterhood!

    When it comes to sisterhood, what girls start can spiral outward and change the world. Through Mission: Sisterhood! girls see the stories of sisterhood all around them and grow as leaders by widening their networks and broadening their world.

  • GIRLtopia


    Girl Scout Seniors know the world is not ideal. This journey is their chance to imagine a perfect world - for girls. They’re invited to create their vision as an art project in any medium they choose. Then take action to make their vision a reality.
