Behind every Girl Scout and volunteer is a team of local staff ready to help them earn that next badge, embark on a camping adventure, or organize an impactful service project. That’s what a Girl Scout council is. We are here to maintain camp properties, provide local Girl Scouts skill-building workshops and resources to achieve whatever they can dream up.
Girl Scouts of Greater Mississippi (GSGMS) is the top leadership development organization for girls in kindergarten through 12th grade
In partnership with its committed adult volunteers, GSGMS serves more than 10,000 members in 45 counties in south and central Mississippi, helping them to become strong, confident young women. Through GSGMS’s outdoor adventure and camp opportunities, science and technology programs, health and fitness initiatives and environmental awareness activities, girls develop qualities and skills that will serve them throughout their lives
We believe that in order to be a leader within your community, you have to truly become a part of that community. Girl Scouts offers girls the unique opportunity to identify and support issues that are important to them, form partnerships with other people, businesses and organizations and create sustainable projects that change the world around them. Girls not only develop leadership skills, but cultivate lifelong friendships and earn meaningful awards. Through Girl Scout programs, girls learn the importance of responsibility, goal setting, teamwork and the thrill of accomplishment.
Imagine what an entire generation of girls will do, given the confidence, the skills, and the experience they need to lead!
