    For Almost 10 Years

    I never really fit in very well though.  Most of the girls I came into contact with were obsessed with the fashion and makeup line of badges.  I was more for the outdoor/useful ones.  So, they had their sewing and fashion design badges, and I had my survival/sporty...

    Cookies!

    I was a girl scout, both brownie and junior.  I love camping and badges.  My mother was a troop leader for years and she loved it!  She stayed even when I left.  I loved selling cookies and still to this day think girl scout cookies are the best cookies around...

    I Liked It

    We had a lot of fun times. We had names for each other. I was a skirt scout because I thought the uniform was so flattering. And during 1965 and 1966, the years I was a skirt scout, I went to camp for two weeks each summer, and because I always liked drinking lots of water...

    I Loathed It.

    My mom put me in Girl Scouts against my will when I was 9 years old. We didn't do much except go to this girl's moms house for meetings and sell cookies to get shittastic prizes. We never went camping or did anything fun which was a big let down. I forced my mom to let me quit...

    This Is a Repeat Song This Is a Repeat Song

    Wanna Buy Girl Scout Cookies?

    I was a girl scout and loved it!  I had an amazing girl scout leader (she was a single mom) who was just awesome at giving us the best experience we could get.  I used to sell cookies to the frat houses on the college campus, and to the priests (the priests always...

    All In the Family

    I was a girl scout and went to camp two years in a row. I loved it and would have gone back but that was it. My daughter was a girl scout too and I was the co-troop leader. We had a blast... did things that were fun and exciting and she learned so much. It was fun and I...

    Scouting

    I was a Brownie back in the days when we wore little brown beanies and orange felt sashes. I don't remember much about my Brownie days other than making a lot of arts and crafts projects. Later, I became a Girl Scout. I enjoyed selling cookies. We went door to door to door to...

    I Still Am a Girl Scout....

    My mom got me into girl scouts in kindergarten, because she wanted me to make friends because I was a only child, it did the trick. I'm still friends with some of those girls today. But now I really don't care about the program as much. The program seems to be more focused on...

    Brownie First

    I was just thinking about Girl Scouts. I think back now and all the fun that I had. I was a Brownie first...do they even have them any more? Then I went on to become a Girl Scout....you know I think some of the things that I learned over 35 yrs ago still stick with me.

    Would You Like to Buy Some Cookies?

    I was a girl scout for 3 years! I don't know why I stayed in it for so long! I never enjoyed it and I saw no fun in the things we did! However, I did like the cookies when we had to sell them!

    Didn't Like The Girl Scouts

    I didn't like the Girl Scouts. I was both a Brownie & a Girl Scout & I didn't like either. I would have enjoyed it more if I hadn't been so afraid of all the people. I've always had severe social anxiety & even back then (3rd grade for Brownies, 4th & 5th for Girl Scouts), I was...

    Brownie and Junior

    Hated Selling the Cookies

    I started out in the Girl Scouts as a Brownie then moved on to Juniors, when I had to sell the cookies so we could go camping.  Every year we'd get our allotment of boxes to sell and I'd go through the neighborhood with my wagon with the cookies.  I didn't have trouble...

    Those were the BEST years of my life.

    If you have a young daughter, please ensure that she is a Girl Scout. From the ages of 7 to 11, I was a Girl Scout. The Troop was based at our school, so about 10 of my classmates and I all met after school in one of the classrooms, and one of their moms was the Troop Leader...
