Cadettes (grades 6-8)

GS CADETTES gradelevel


Girl Scouts helps girls discover their talents and strengths, connect with others, and take action in their communities. Trained, carring adult volunteers provide opportunities for girls to practice decision-making skills, develop healthy and positive self-esteem, and pursue interests in a supportive nurturing all-girl environment. Girls and adults plan together, as partners, to decide what activities they will do.

Girl Scout Cadettes (grades 6-8) earn badges, hike and camp, participate in the cookie program, and much more. They have tons of fun and make new friends that will last a lifetime! A Girl Scout Cadette's leadership journey begins with her choice of Girl Scouting's three journey series: It's Your World - Change It!, It's Your Planet - Love It! and It's Your Story - Tell It!

Air is everywhere in this journey for Girl Scout Cadettes. As the girls explore the air all around them, they'll learn a lot of air-clearing strategies, including how to turn down the volume! That means they'll be improving their personal air space - and finding the breathing room so necessary to be leaders who make the most of their special flair! Girl Scout Cadettes will also meet scientists, engineers, writers, and artists - all of them working for Earth's air!
