Girl Scout Week 2022

Girl Scout Week is coming up, but what is Girl Scout Week?

Girl Scout Week is celebrated each March, starting with Girl Scout Sunday and ending with Girl Scout Sabbath on a Saturday, and it always includes Girl Scouts' birthday, March 12 – so the dates move! This year Girl Scout Week is March 6th-March 12th! During Girl Scout Week there are two special days:

  • Girl Scouts’ birthday, March 12, commemorates the day in 1912 when Juliette Gordon Low officially registered the organization's first 18 members in Savannah, Georgia.
  • Girl Scouts Celebrate Faith events give Girl Scouts an opportunity to be recognized at their places of worship during Girl Scout Week, share their legacy of service to others, and deepen their connection to their faith and Girl Scouting. Celebration days include Girl Scout Sunday, Girl Scout Jummah, and Girl Scout Sabbath/Shabbat. This is a great time to earn your My Promise, My Faith Pin

This year Girl Scouts of Northeastern New York have a whole week of special activities for you! 

SWAPS Sunday! Celebrate classic Girl Scout traditions by making Girl Scout SWAPS! Learn how to make SWAPS in our All About SWAPS – Tips for Troop Leaders or our SWAPS Guide.

The next time you visit one of our Service Centers or Camp Properties be on the lookout for one of our SWAPS Boards where you take a SWAPS, leave a SWAPS! There are boards currently at Hidden Lake Camp in the Dining Hall, Camp Is-Sho-Da in the Troop House, and all three Service Centers! Boards will be coming to Camp Woodhaven and Lake Clear Camp in the spring! Don’t miss this SWAPortunity!
