Girl Scout Memories

As Girl Scouting heads towards its 100th Birthday (March 12, 2012), the Archives of Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta is launching its own memory project. We encourage everyone to go and take a look at our group on Facebook, specifically created for this project, called Girl Scout Memories.

This is just one way that we are gathering Girl Scouts’ memories, both young and old, from all over the United States and the world. We started the discussion with these questions:

What do you remember most fondly about your Girl Scout experiences? Camping? Troop meetings with friends? A special event or trip? Best friends? Be sure to include dates and places so we can place you within our 100 years of Girl Scout Memories.

If you don’t feel comfortable sharing on Facebook, please feel free to contact the Archives to either email stories to us or to make arrangements to meet in person to learn about your Scouting experience. Think about the uniform you wore, the camps you went to and what you did there, the life-long friends you made, or the SWAPS that you still have. We have many former Girl Scouts come up to the Cookie Sale Booths in the Spring to share that they were part of Scouting with great smiles on their faces. We encourage all of you to make this memory project one of the best ones yet!
