Girl Scout Sunday and Faith-Based Resources
Girl Scout Week is traditionally celebrated each March, and Girl Scouts Celebrate Faith events give Girl Scouts an opportunity to be recognized at their places of worship during Girl Scout Week, share their legacy of service to others and deepen their connection to their faith and Girl Scouting. Celebration days include Girl Scout Sunday, Girl Scout Jummah and Girl Scout Sabbath.

You can find materials for Girl Scout Sunday and Girl Scouts Celebrate Faith, including bulletin copy, PowerPoint slides and more, on our website here

Along with celebrations during Girl Scout Week, GSUSA is also hosting a virtual event, Girls of Faith: Celebrating Together, on March 11, 12 and 14. This multi-day event is geared toward Girl Scouts in grades 4-12 and will be a unique experience for girls to earn their My Promise, My Faith pin. To register, please click here.
