About Us

Mission Statement: Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.

Girl Scouts is the world’s preeminent organization dedicated solely to girls -- all girls -- where, in an accepting and nurturing environment, girls build character and skills for success in the real world. In partnership with dedicated adult volunteers, girls develop qualities that will serve them all their lives, like leadership, strong values, social conscience, and conviction about their own potential and self-worth.

The Girl Scouts of the Chesapeake Bay encompasses all of the Delmarva Peninsula which includes Delaware, the Eastern Shore of Maryland, and the Eastern Shore of Virginia. The first Troop on the Delmarva Peninsula was formed at Mount Zion Lutheran Church in Wilmington, Delaware in 1915. In 1962, Wilmington Area Girl Scout Council and Peninsula Girl Scout Council merged to form the Girl Scouts of the Chesapeake Bay.
