Girl Scouts River Valleys Spirit Week was such a big hit last year, we’ve decided to make it an annual event!
Our 2019 Girl Scout Spirit Week is September 16–22 and is a time to show our Girl Scout pride, amplify the Girl Scout message, and invite new girls to join the Girl Scout movement. Girls, volunteers, and alumnae show their enthusiasm for Girl Scouts by wearing their uniforms, getting decked out in Girl Scout gear, and inviting their friends to join Girl Scouts. For troop leaders, volunteers, staff, and families, this means sharing stories about the impact of the program and taking lots of photos of our Girl Scouts—and ourselves—to share on social media and spread our Girl Scout love to everyone! Photo submission form will be available September 16.
Girl Scout Spirit Week is the best time to hold troop formation events and invite new girls and their families to troop meetings.
