Girl Scout Week 2021 Activities

Even though many of us are celebrating virtually, your troop can celebrate Girl Scout Week 2021.

One year ago, Girl Scout Week was celebrated in troops across the country just like it always was. Now, in March 2021, it is a bit different.

When is Girl Scout Week 2021?

Girl Scout Sunday (Christian)—Sunday, March 7, 2021
Girl Scout Jummah (Muslim)—Friday, March 12, 2021
Girl Scout Sabbath/Shabbat (Jewish) Friday/Saturday, March 12–13, 2021

Girl Scout Week is an Optional Activity

This year, Girl Scout Week 2021 takes place from March 7th through March 13th.

When a troop celebrates Girl Scout Week, most of the activities are individual. The exception to that is when a girl goes to her place of worship to celebrate to participate in the service. This year, those dates are:

Girl Scout Sunday (Christian)—Sunday, March 7, 2021
Girl Scout Jummah (Muslim)—Friday, March 12, 2021
Girl Scout Sabbath/Shabbat (Jewish) Friday/Saturday, March 12–13, 2021

While it is fun for your girls to celebrate Girl Scout Week, it is an optional activity and always has been. This is because this is an individual thing to do not, not a troop activity led by a leader. The girls in your troop need family support in order to accomplish the daily activity, especially when they are younger.

If a girl opts out of doing this, no need for you to stress. I had girls not participate and they did not get their Girl Scout Week patch from our Council. No lost sleep here.

How to Celebrate Girl Scout Week 2021

Every year around this time, I do research to find you the latest activities that the GSUSA and Councils across the country have put out. This year, there is nothing new, with the exception of the the Girl Scouts Overseas, who have put together a virtual program that you can pay for.

Girl Scout Week 2021 Resources and Activities

I have read through and edited older blog posts so that you have resources at your hand to give to your troop. Just a reminder...ignore the dates on the calendars. It is the list of activities that count.
