Girl Scouts at Home

We know that this is a challenging time for Girl Scouts—staying home from school away from friends is a significant change in their routine that can make them feel disconnected. At Girl Scouts, we are fortunate to be able to continue offering the same quality programming to girls, volunteers, and families virtually for at-home enrichment experiences. The unique and far-reaching Girl Scout sisterhood experience will help us stay connected during these unprecedented times.

Every day, we will add virtual badge activities, programs, and resources for girls and families to engage with from home. Many of these are available to the public—no Girl Scout membership necessary. Check back often!

Support for GSEMA's Girl Scouts at Home programming is provided by: BNY Mellon; P&G Gillette; Intel; People's United Bank

Make New Friends: For Girls Entering Kindergarten

Make New Friends is a four-part virtual series for non-member families and girls entering kindergarten in Fall, 2020. These online gatherings provide opportunities for girls to strengthen four competencies as they enter kindergarten. Girls will connect with the same friends each week, as well as with Girl Scout staff and volunteers who will lead them through fun and engaging activities to strengthen language and literacy, cognition, approaches to learning, and social and emotional learning. Register today to help her get ready for kindergarten! For additional sessions and more information, visit Girl Scouts of the USA's Ready, Set, Kindergarten! page.

Animal Dance Party

Imagine you’re a grasshopper or a ladybug. How do bugs like those see the world? Do little rocks seem big? Do blades of grass seem super tall? Now put on some music. How do you move or dance differently now that you’re a bug? 

We’ll learn about lots of animals and find fun new ways to dance together at this virtual party! These events are free and open to all local girls in  kindergarten through third grade and their families—the more the merrier!  Register.

Robot Building Party

Imagine you could build any kind of robot you wanted. Would it be a robot that could make your life more fun, easier, or both? What would it do and how would it work? 

At this virtual party, we’ll learn a lot about robots—and build one too! These events are free and open to all local girls in kindergarten through third grade and their families—the more the merrier!  Register.
