What We Do (Pathways)
The girl experience through Pathways!
Through Girl Scout Pathways, girls have the freedom to choose among any of the Pathways to join Girl Scouting and may participate in multiple Pathways within a membership year. Girls are given the opportunity to explore their skills and interests and inspired to reach their personal best through a variety of fun and enriching leadership experiences. But more importantly, no matter where or how they participate, girls get the necessary guidance they need from adult volunteers and council staff to develop their leadership skills and understand how those skills can be used to make a difference in the world.
The six Girl Scout Pathways are the ways that girls participate in Girl Scouting. Girls can choose any one, all, or some of these Pathways within a single year; however, different Pathways may be geared specifically to different grade levels.
Girl Scouts of Nassau County Offers Five Pathways Experiences.
Girls participate in day or resident camps with a focus on the out-of-doors and/or environmental education.
Camping is a fun and great way to build new skills, participate in camp activities, get a sense of community, and develop a deep appreciation for nature. Whether you go to a day camp, weekend camping during the winter, or a week or longer at sleep away camp, Girl Scout Camp gives you an opportunity to grow, explore, and have fun-always under the guidance of caring, trained adult volunteers or camp counselors
Rather than just meeting in a Troop setting, Girl Scouts in Nassau County have the opportunity to participate in series. Girls participate in a series of programs with the same group of girls relating to a specific theme or purpose.
Girls can plan, earn money, prepare and participate in regional, national and international trips through GS Destinations.
Any girl from Kindergarten(K) through twelfth(12) grade, from any neighborhood and any background can become a Girl Scout at any time during the year. The most well known Girl Scouting experience is through Girl Scout Troops. Through Troops, Girl Scouts discover the fun, friendship, and power of girls together, and your daughter can be a part of it. The possibilities are endless!
