Girl Scout Week
Celebrated each March, Girl Scout Week is the week that includes the Girl Scout Birthday of March 12. The week starts with Girl Scout Sunday and ends with Girl Scout Sabbath on Saturday.
These days give girls an opportunity to attend their place of worship and be recognized as a Girl Scout. If a place of worship is the group sponsor, girls may perform a service, such as greeting, ushering, or doing a flag ceremony. These days can also be a time when girls explore other faiths.
