The local organization, serving the island of Guam, is licensed by Girl Scouts of the USA, and
part of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts. Now celebrating 72 years on the
island, and 95 years nation-wide, Girl Scouting continues to help girls grow strong… mentally,
physically and spiritually.
Guam Girl Scouts are open to all girls, ages 5 – 17. There are currently more than 26 troops in
schools and villages across the island, with more being formed. Our membership is
approximately more than 500, with 60% “local” girls and 40% girls whose families live on
military bases. Altogether, as Guam Girl Scouts, the girls enjoy activities including
environmental care, sports, art, music, service projects, career exploration, technology events,
cultural diversity celebrations and summer camps.

girl members, to see that Girl Scouting is available for every girl, everywhere. In the best of
