Girl Scouts of America

Girl Scouts troops have been active at Ardmore UMC for more than 60

years. We are part of the Carolinas Peaks to Piedmont Girl Scout Council

and Service Unit 141. The Girl Scout mission is to build courage,

confidence and character in girls to make the world a better place.

We have Daisy (Kindergarten/1st Grade), Brownie (2 nd /3 rd Grades), Junior

(4 th /5 th Grades), Cadette (6 th /7 th /8 th Grades), Senior (9 th /10 th Grades) and

Ambassador (11 th /12 th Grades) troops at Ardmore, each planning their

own activities. The girls participate in troop and service unit activities and

events, having fun and earning badges/patches for their work on these

activities. The girls enjoy a variety of activities including discussing

contemporary issues and careers, camping/hiking, traveling to

Savannah,GA and Girl Scout World Centers, doing service projects for the

church and community, exploring science and technology with STEAM

activities, sewing and making crafts, learning life skills and creating

activities of interest to them. Our girls sell cookies, candy, nuts and

magazines to earn money for the troop and to earn scholarship money

for camp, as well as individual prizes. Juniors work together to earn the

Bronze Award, Cadettes earn the Silver Award and the

Seniors/Ambassadors earn the Gold Award, all of which involve their

leadership skills and hard work.
