For over 95 years, Girl Scouting has offered opportunities for girls all over the world to build character and skills while developing courage and confidence to make the world around them a better place. While many homeschool girls have participated as "Juliettes", some activities are more enjoyable with a troop. Visit Central Illinois Girl Scouts in order to find a troop that will meet your Girl Scouting needs.
