Badges, Activities, & Beyond

Your Guide to a Year of Adventure!

The Program Events Guide is available now! It’s Girl Scouts of Western Ohio’s annual book of program events for girls and adults, but there’s so much more! Keep reading to find out how you can use this fantastic resource to plan your year full of exploration, discovery and fun adventures!

Program Events

We offer a wide variety of programming for girls of all levels! Some of our events are council sponsored and some are hosted by program partners, our experts in our communities. We have more than 200 program partners offering quality programming for girls council-wide!

No matter who’s hosting, we know girls are going to be building skills as Go-Getters, Innovators, Risk-Takers, and Leaders focusing on topics in STEM, Outdoors, Entrepreneurship, and Life Skills. Note that not all program events are listed in Activities, because many of our program partners handle their own registration.

Girls can come as an individual or with their troop. We welcome girls to take charge of their experience and register for the events they are excited about most! 

Please note: Leaders or other approved adults are required to attend events with their troop (unless otherwise specified) and are responsible for ensuring the safety of the girls.

Volunteer Learning Opportunities

Want to learn something new, need to become troop camp trained, or want to know the webinar schedule? Check out the volunteer learning opportunities near the back of the book! You can also find the handy dandy Volunteer Learning Progression chart and some VTK tips.

What Sets Us Apart

Use this spread, found at the beginning of the book, as a guide into the Girl Scout program. You’ll find an overview of the Girl Scout Leadership experience: what we do, how we do it, and why!

Maybe you’re brand new, maybe you’ve been a leader for a lifetime, or maybe you’re somewhere in the middle. No matter your experience level, this is a helpful tool to ensure your girl(s) enjoy a well-rounded, quality Girl Scout experience!
