Girl Scouts of Western Washington offer Kent-area informational nights

Explore the world of Girl Scouts at any one of several Kent-area informational nights.

Girls, kindergarten through 12th grade, and their parents or guardians are invited to learn about scouting. Troop leaders of Girl Scouts will be available to answer questions about scouting, membership, activities and the joys of scout leadership.

For information on Girl Scouts, see the Girl Scouts of Western Washington website, www.girlscoutsww.org (click on "Join" and pay only $12 for membership for the 2012-13 year).

Adults interested in volunteering for Girl Scouts will learn about leadership opportunities and training.

Girl Scout troops are divided into six separate age groups beginning with Daisies, which are the youngest scouts who are in kindergarten and first grade. Next come Brownies in second and third grades, Juniors in fourth and fifth grades, Cadettes in sixth through eighth grades, Seniors in ninth and 10th, and finally, Ambassadors in 11th and 12th grades.

There are various pathways a girl can take in scouting. She can join a troop, go camping, travel, attend events or explore a series such as robotics.
