At Girl Scouts we know that given the opportunity, every girl can become a leader with the courage to act on her values, develop the ability to make clear decisions, and acquire the self confidence to make a difference in the world around her.
Girl Scouts helps girls grow courageous and strong through girl-driven programs, reflecting the ever-changing needs and interests of girls.
Girl Scouts is for every girl and we are committed to serving girls who face sometimes overwhelming obstacles through programs such as Girl Scouts Beyond Bars, serving the daughters of women in prison, Girl Scouts Fostering A Future, serving girls who are in foster care, and Skills For Life, serving girls in low income housing communities, many of whom are new to this country.
Headquartered in Seattle, Washington, we currently serve over 26,000 girls in partnership with nearly 13,000 volunteers throughout seventee counties in western Washington. In addition to our headquarters, we operate field offices located in Aberdeen, Bremerton, Bellevue, DuPont, Longview, Marysville, and Renton, as well as six camp properties: Camp Lyle Mcleod and Camp St. Albans near Belfair, Camp Robbinswold on the Hood Canal, Camp Evergreen near Longview, Camp Klahanee near Hoquiam and Camp River Ranch, near Carnation.
