Girl Scout Journeys

Girl Scout Journeys are just one of the many ways you can make a difference in the world—from helping others get healthy and fit (and stay that way!), to saving the planet. Once you choose a Journey topic that interests you most, you’ll identify a problem, design a solution, and put a plan into action. Along the way, you’ll find inspiration, challenge yourself, earn awards to put on your uniform, and, of course, have a great time.

Journeys & Badges: What’s The Difference?

A Girl Scout Journey is an extended engagement with a topic that culminates in a Take Action project to make the world a better place. Journeys are created specifically for leadership development. Badges are shorter engagements with topics developed more for introducing girls to new experiences and developing specific skills.

It’s Your World—Change It!

Turnkey Journeys

Brownie Quest
Girls learn how to take care of themselves, their families, their Girl Scout sisters, and their communities in Brownie Quest. Together they read to younger kids, promote healthy eating, or choose a project that improves the lives of their neighbors.

Junior Agent of Change
As they explore their own talents and learn about women who have made the world better, Juniors following Agent of Change also discover the benefits of teamwork—whether it’s talking about energy use, helping a local food bank, or using their unique talents in other ways.

Cadette aMAZE
Developing healthy relationships, navigating cliques, and moving beyond stereotypes are major themes in aMAZE! The Twists and Turns of Getting Along. Cadettes team up on projects with younger girls, senior citizens, or classmates to share their new friendship-building skills.

 

It’s Your Planet—Love It!

Turnkey Journeys

Daisy Between Earth and Sky
Daisies learn about nature by visiting parks, talking to experts, and making origami butterflies. Then they take action to protect the Earth and help their communities by doing art projects, planting trees, or creating a garden

Brownie WOW
Visiting lakes, learning about water quality, and hearing from experts are on the agenda for Brownies in WOW! Wonders of Water. They put theory into practice by making informative posters, promoting recycling at school, and planting low-water gardens.

Junior Get Moving
As part of GET MOVING! Juniors go for nature walks, interview power-use experts, and conduct energy audits of local buildings. They take action by launching carpools, working to dim the lights on city buildings, and promoting energy savings at school. 

 

It’s Your Story—Tell It!

Turnkey Journeys

Daisy 5 Flowers, 4 Stories, 3 Cheers for Animals!
By learning how to take care of animals, Daisies also learn to take care of themselves. On the 5 Flowers, 4 Stories, 3 Cheers for Animals! Journey, girls may visit a farm or a zoo, then share what they’ve learned in a puppet show, on a mural, or in a story they write themselves.

Brownie In A World of Girls
Brownies discover different cultures around the world and see how storytelling can inspire us to help others. Then girls may team up to tell their own stories through theater, crafts, painting, or even by developing their own advertising.

Junior aMUSE
Exploring new roles and busting stereotypes are just two of the activities Juniors enjoy on the aMUSE Journey. Whether it’s role-playing, speaking to actors about their characters, or starting a “mix-it-up” day to meet new classmates, girls develop increased confidence and inspire others.

Senior Mission Sisterhood
The powerful benefits of strong, healthy relationships are explored on the Mission: Sisterhood! Journey. Seniors may role-play friendship scenarios, organize a “Girl Power” film club at school, or host a mixer where girls can meet, share stories, and make lifelong connections.
