GIRLS SCOUTS

G.I.R.L. (Go-Getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)©

Overview

Girl Scouts of Central Maryland was established in 1962 and serves 24,000 girls in 2,000 troops and groups in Baltimore City, Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Carroll, Harford and Howard counties with the help of nearly 9,000 dedicated and committed adult volunteers. Girl Scouts of the USA and Girl Scouts of Central Maryland value diversity and inclusiveness and do not discriminate or recruit on the basis of race, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, national origin, or physical or developmental disability.  Our goal is to create a safe place for all girls to explore, learn new skills, challenge themselves, make new friends and have fun!

Story

Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. 

The Girl Scouts of Central Maryland and Baltimore Alumnae Chapter have a long- standing relationship of servicing girls in the Park Heights community.   In 1981, Thelma Banks-Cox, past president of the Baltimore Alumnae Chapter was the first black person to head the Girl Scouts of Central Maryland board.  She remained until 1986 and established the Thelma Banks Cox Academic Achievement Award for Girl Scouts. The Baltimore Alumnae chapter began sponsoring Girl Scout troops immediately after moving into the Delta Community Center.  Initially we targeted Martin Luther King Elementary School.  As the troops grew girls came from other schools in the Park Heights area and beyond.  Troops for every grade level: Daisies, Brownies, Juniors, Cadets, Seniors and Ambassadors were established in the beginning and continue to exist today.  We are now serving the children of some of our original girl scouts.

Girl Scouting is a unique experience where girls ages 5-18 develop character and leadership while   having fun, building friendships, learning stills that will carry them throughout thei lives.  Girl Scouting helps girls develop their full individual potential; relate to others with increasing understanding, skill, and respect; develop values to guide their actions and provide the foundation for sound decision making; and contribute to the improvement of society through their abilities, leadership skills, and cooperation with others.

Troops meet bi-weekly on Monday at the Delta Center.
