If you are looking for a fun, unique activity for your daughter, look no further than Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore! They provide a positive setting for her to have amazing adventures and a safe place to create lifelong friendships. Girl Scouts isn’t just a moment in her life, it’s a movement dedicated to building girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place. From building strong
relationships and developing her sense-of-self to growing her confidence and leadership skills, Girl Scouts provides the framework for an unending range of opportunities to make a difference, learn new skills, make new friends, get outdoors, and explore the world.
Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore has a powerful mission: building girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. As moms, so many of us have wonderful memories of participating in Girl Scouts. As a daisy, brownie, and girl scout, we cherished the time spent with friends, taking trips, and working on activities. Little did we know, so much of what we learned in Girl Scouts forged a path for success and helped develop skill-sets to run our own businesses and grow our careers.
Fun, friendship and new adventures are what Girl Scouts is all about. Girls make new friends, challenge themselves, write their own stories, and take action to change the world for the better. The Girl Scout Leadership experience is girl-led, following their own lead no matter the age. They learn by doing with hands on activities, which helps them to feel empowered to shape their own experience. It also offers cooperative learning with a tight-knit group of girls, Girl Scouts learn and grow together while cheering each other on.
Activities in the Girl Scout Leadership Experience focus on four key areas:
- Science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM)
- Life Skills
Girls Scout of the Jersey Shore offers a tremendous amount of special events outside of their program, and is also home to two summer camps in Monmouth and Ocean Counties.
