Girl Scouts Nation’s Capital believes in the power of every G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ to change the world. We offer every girl the opportunity to discover who she is, what she can do, and connect her with a powerful community of girls and mentors to make it happen. With unique programs designed by girls, for girls, Girl Scouts explore, learn, succeed and take action to make a difference in their community. The Girl Scout program focusses on four pillars: STEM, Outdoors, Entrepreneurial Skills and Lifeskills.
With support from dedicated adult volunteers, parents and staff, we deliver the best Girl Scout experience to 87,254 members: 60,469 girls and 26,785 adults in the Greater Washington Region, which includes the District of Columbia and in Maryland: Allegany, Washington, Frederick, Montgomery, Prince George's, Charles, Calvert and St. Mary's Counties; in Virginia: Page, Shenandoah, Warren, Frederick, Clarke, Fauquier, Loudoun, Fairfax, Arlington and Prince William Counties; and in West Virginia: Jefferson, Berkeley, Morgan, Hampshire, Mineral, Hardy and Grant Counties.
