Girl Scout Daisy: Grades K-1
New Experiences, New Friends!
Becoming a Girl Scout Daisy is a great way for a girl who is just starting school to make friends and gain confidence! In the troop pathway Daisies usually meet a couple times a month, in groups of 5 to 10 girls with two or more trained adult leaders in a nurturing, inclusive environment. They go on trips, learn about nature and science and explore the arts and their communities. Girl Scout Daisies can also earn Learning Petals and receive participation patches. Petals can be worn on official uniforms, but uniforms are not required in Girl Scouting. Daisies can also participate in other Girl Scout Pathways and do not have to be part of a troop.
Girls now have three series of National Leadership Journeys to choose from! It's Your World - Change It, It's Your Planet - Love It, and It's Your Story - Tell It! On every Leadership Journey, everything girls do—whether it's performing science experiments, creating art projects, cooking simple meals, or learning to protect the planet's water supply—is aimed at giving them the benefits of the Girl Scout "Keys to Leadership": Discover, Connect, Take Action.
