G.I.R.L. Resource Centers

Ever needed a set of Girl Scout and WAGGGS flags for a special ceremony but not sure where to borrow them? Or wanted to try some campfire cooking in a dutch oven but not sure about spending troop funds (or your own) on cast iron cookware?

While your own set of flags or campfire cooking gear can be quite useful if you will use them frequently, there are some items that to truly use your resources wisely it's better to borrow than to purchase with troop funds. That's why we updated our G.I.R.L. Resource Centers across the council with common items that troops can borrow to enrich their Girl Scout experience!

Please note, program resources may only be checked out:

  • For one week, unless confirmed by the program staff
  • By a Girl Scout volunteer, for Girl Scout use.
