Girl Scouts

We are enrolling girls in existing troops and forming new Girl Scout troops at St. Bernard! Wherever your passions lie, you’ll find a place for them at Girl Scouts of Middle Tennessee. There’s no one “type” of Girl Scout. The only thing you should be is you. Whether you feel most yourself in the science lab, on the hiking trail, behind a camera, at center stage, or anywhere in between, Girl Scouts has activities that speak to your talents and skills. 

If you are interested in joining or simply learning more, contact one of the volunteers below.
*Two volunteers and at least 5 girls are needed to form a troop.
