About Juniors

Girl Scouts Juniors are USA Grades 4 – 5                                                  (approximately ages 9 & 10 )

Juniors are explorers when they go camping for the first time. They’re CEOs when they market and sell cookies. They’re scientists when they perform energy audits and go on nature walks. And they’re product designers and writers when they earn their Innovation and Storytelling badges. Not to mention change-makers, big-idea thinkers, and future leaders. Superheroes, indeed!

As a Girl Scout Junior she might:

  • Share stories (and smiles) with new friends in her troop
  • Try new experiences and learn new skills as she earns badges
  • Explore the outdoors at camp and beyond
  • Choose an issue she cares about, then do something to make a difference as part of a Girl Scout Leadership Journey
  • Earn her Bronze Award, one of Girl Scouts’ highest awards

Troop/Group Leaders

Every Girl Scout Junior belongs to a troop or group guided by leaders who are taught by certified trainers. Leaders partner with girls as they explore new opportunities, learn decision-making skills, and gain the confidence to be trailblazers in service to their communities.

Uniforms and Books

Girl Scout Juniors can wear the Girl Scout Membership Pin, showing they belong to Girl Scouts of the USA, and the World Trefoil Pin, signifying their membership in a worldwide movement. Girls can purchase Girl Scout Junior uniforms with either a sash or vest to display their badges and other insignia. They can also buy the Junior Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting and Journey books.
