No matter her interest, there is a pathway for every girl. Girls and adults may join at any time and all pathways are available to any girl, regardless of her previous Girl Scout experience or economic situation. We make cooperative learning a core part of every activity so that even individually, girls will have the opportunity to participate with other girls in whatever pathway(s) they choose.

SERIES:  The Series Pathway gives girls the opportunity to participate in a series of programs relating to a specific theme or purpose. This pathway is for girls who are really interested in a topic or activity. It offers enrichment activities for the troop pathway girls.

EVENTS: Girl Scouts Western Oklahoma offers several one-day events. Whatever your interests are, there is a Girl Scout event for you. Girls can customize their Girl Scout experience and attend as many or as few events as they like.

TROOP: Troops are formed by volunteers . . .you! A Girl Scout troop consists of at least two non-related adult volunteer troop leaders and at least five girls of the same age and grade level. Troops meet together regularly (you choose how often), usually for the duration of the school year. Troops provide an opportunity for girls to discover, connect, and take action through a variety of activities including events, troop trips, cookies, science, badge work, service, etc.

TRAVEL: Girl Scouts go places! Girls in grades 6 to 12 can take their Girl Scout experience to a whole new level as they become their own travel agent through a Travel Pathway. Girl Scouts sponsors regional, national, and international trips. Take an individual journey to a destination of your choice, travel as a troop or group, or join other Girl Scouts to explore the world!

CAMP: This is the most traditional and memorable way to become involved in Girl Scouting. Girl Scout camp provides a safe and fun environment where girls explore nature and enjoy outdoor activities. There are a variety of camp programs for girls ages 5 to 17. Participate in a day camp for several afternoons, enjoy an overnight minicamp, or register for a resident camp and stay for a week.
