In Girl Scouts, girls discover the fun, friendship, and power of girls together. Through a myriad of enriching experiences, such as extraordinary field trips, sports skill-building clinics, community service projects, cultural exchanges, and environmental stewardships, girls grow courageous and strong. Girl Scouting helps girls develop their full individual potential; relate to others with increasing understanding, skill, and respect; develop values to guide their actions and provide the foundation for sound decision-making; and contribute to the improvement of society through their abilities, leadership skills, and cooperation with others.
At Saint Bridget School we offer both scouting programs. The boy scouting program at Saint Bridget School begins with cub scouts in 1st grade and the Girl Scouting program begins in Kindergarten. We have our own troops that meet after school once a month and participate in a variety of both in-school and out-of-school activities.
