Girl Scouts | Sports Comittee | YAMS
The Girl Scouts is an organization dedicated solely to girls where, in an accepting and nurturing environment, girls build character and skills for success in the real world. In partnership with committed adult volunteers, Girl Scouts cultivate their full individual potential. The qualities they develop in Girl Scouting – leadership, values, social conscience, and conviction about their own self-worth – serve them all their lives. The Girl Scouts have a membership of approximately 150 girls who are divided into four different groups depending on the girls’ ages. The Daisies are the youngest group and are all in kindergarten. The Brownies are from Grades One through Three, Juniors are from Grades Four through Six and the Cadets are Grades Seven and Eight. The leaders teach the girls arts and crafts, supervise trips, and assist them in service and social activities. There is a father-daughter dance in February and a mother-daughter dance in May, and a Scouts’ breakfast in March. The Scouts meet in the school every Friday afternoon from 2:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
