Our membership is enriched by the diversity of our region. Girl Scouts is committed to bringing our leadership program to all girls, from every zip code--regardless of their economic status--to have the opportunity to explore the fun and adventure of Girl Scouts.
Girl Scout community-based camps are offered throughout the region during school spring and summer breaks. These camps provide girls, who are not Girl Scouts, with a safe and fun place to learn about our Girl Scout traditions and programs, while playing games, making crafts and singing songs. To learn more about our community-based camps email our membership department.
With support from the District of Columbia Schools, Girl Scout troops are expanding in some of the lowest performing schools in the District of Columbia. The Girl Scout model engages teachers, parents and the community to provide girls with a safe space to explore their interests and grow in confidence. Interested in forming a troop in the District of Columbia contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

Each year Girl Scout troops come together to compete in our DC Step Showcase. Troops showcase their talents, while building team skills and confidence. Stepping is deeply rooted in the African-American culture. Inspired by sororities and fraternities, stepping is a synchronized dance routine using steps, clapping, chants and song. Today, this American tradition is celebrated by all.

The workshops will include how tobudget, save for college and the importance of building credit. The goal is to help middle and high school girls understand the power of their financial future.
Girl Scouts and the Catholic Church share much in common. We strive to empower girls and encourage their growth and development as responsible members of society. Girl Scouts are encouraged to explore their faith through the My Promise, My Faith program, and earn their faith organization's emblems and recognitions.
Girl Scouts and the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ committee on Laity, Marriage, Family Life and Youth (LMFLY) have developed guidance for local Catholic dioceses when offering Girl Scouting to their communities. We are pleased that the guidance reaffirms the value of Girl Scouting in Catholic communities. Girl Scouts Nation’s Capital is working with the Archdiocese of Washington on Girl Scouting resource, and we are pleased to inform you that the Archdiocese of Arlington has created a memorandum of understanding for local parishes to use when establishing Girl Scout troops in their schools and churches. Contact your local Girl Scout office for more details.
