G.I.R.L. 2017

Go back to Getaways

Experience the power of a G.I.R.L.

About the Trip

In October 2017, Girl Scouts will bring more than 10,000 supporters, speakers, entertainers and exhibitors to Columbus, Ohio – to inspire girls to take the lead and build a better world.

G.I.R.L. 2017 will bring together every go-getter, innovator, risk-taker, and leader who cares about girls and their leadership potential. This event welcomes Girl Scouts, girls of all ages, parents, families, caregivers, and influencers.

This will be the largest girl-led event in the world, and there are opportunities for girls of all grade levels. Day Passes are available for all ages, and we are organizing a weekend program for Brownies & Juniors, and a weekend program for Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors.

Visit the website to learn all about the events, speakers, and travel to this event. Registration opens on March 14th!
