GSCB Special Interest Groups
One of the most important parts of the Girl Scout program is to ensure activities are girl-led - meaning girls are the ones deciding what badges they want to earn, service projects to complete, and adventures to embark on. Not all troops can offer everything a girl might want; enter GSCB Special Interest Groups!
Special Interest Groups exist for Girl Scouts who want to go above and beyond their regular troop activities in specific areas like outdoor experiences and travel.
