Girl Scout Week 2022: Celebrating 110 Years of Girl Scouts

The Girl Scout Birthday on March 12th commemorates the day in 1912 when Juliette “Daisy” Gordon Low officially registered the organization’s first 18 members in Savannah, Georgia. Along with Daisy, these first Girl Scouts blazed trails and redefined what was possible for themselves and for girls everywhere.

In celebration of the Girl Scout birthday, we host Girl Scout Week each year as a week-long celebration of the foundation that Juliette laid for girls everywhere. This year we will celebrate the 110th Girl Scout Birthday throughout Girl Scout Week running from March 6-March 12th!
