Girl Scout Week is March 6-12, 2016! This special week is a longstanding tradition dating back to the mid-1900s. A Girl Scout Handbook dated 1940 describes Girl Scout Week as a time when, "Girl Scouts make a special effort to tell the community what they're doing and why they ask for help to carry on their program."
