A report issued by the Girl Scout Research Institute, The New Normal? What Girls Say About Healthy Living showed that girls believe that being healthy has many components and dimensions. Girls are aware of what it takes to be healthy. However, they see being healthy as a holistic endeavor that reflects a clear connection between physical and emotional well being. Girl Scouting provides a place for girls to build leadership skills, discover their potential, have fun, and find that balance between physical and emotional health. Girl Scout troops are forming around the region.

In the report, girls talked about the things that topped their list of concerns. They included: getting along with friends, doing well in school, fitting in, getting along with family, how they look, peer pressure, and getting enough exercise. The Girl Scout program tackles all of these issues and more. In Girl Scouts, girls build self esteem by planning their own activities. Within the structure of the troop, girls share leadership duties and responsibility.

Activities in Girl Scouting include: the arts, sports, camping, hiking, biking, traveling, and community service. Girls learn valuable skills through everything they participate in, whether it is learning about teamwork through a community service project or troop activity, or exploring an interest. Girls have the opportunity to work toward more than 60 Try-Its, badges, Interest Projects, and patches related to issues in healthy living. Activities to earn those awards include discussions on handling peer pressure, healthy eating, fitness, and personal safety.

In fact, healthy living has always been a part of Girl Scouts. When Julliette Gordon Low founded the program in 1912, she wanted girls to get their bodies in working order, get outside of their homes, and understand basic nutrition. She wanted them to begin lives of community service. 95 years later, that dedication lives on as girls join the movement to build the skills to make them stronger adults and teenagers. While today’s Girl Scouts are still dedicated to community service, their activities have changed over the years. Girl Scouts still experience the outdoors through troop camping and other activities that build teamwork skills, develop responsibility, and build leadership skills. Girls still make crafts, but those crafts are often items donated to community organizations to serve people in need or they are ways for girls to express their creativity.

Today’s Girl Scouts explore their interests and the world around them. Girl Scouts offer programs in the arts, leadership development, financial literacy, and science. Through each program, girls develop skills build their courage, confidence, and character and give them the tools to make the world a better place.
