● Scouts, BSA - Generations of young people have participated in and benefited from Scouting, and the experience
of serving millions of participants over almost a century has enabled us to make Scouting one of the most exciting
and rewarding programs available to your family. Our program of leadership development along with our outdoor
program help instill values that will help your son or daughter make ethical and moral decisions over their lifetime.
For young men and women ages 10 to 17 years of age.
● Exploring - Exploring is a worksite-based program and based on a unique and dynamic relationship between youth
and the organizations in their communities. Exploring programs are based on five areas of emphasis: career
opportunities, life skills, citizenship, character education, and leadership experience. The result is a program of
activities that help young people mature and to prepare them to become responsible and caring adults.

Girl Scouts unleashes the G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ in every girl, preparing her for a lifetime of leadership—from taking a night-time hike under the stars to accepting a mission on the International Space Station; from lobbying the city council with her troop to holding a seat in Congress; from running her own cookie business today to tackling cybersecurity tomorrow. Our Girl Scout Leadership Experience is a one-of-a-kind leadership development program for girls, with proven results. It is based on time-tested methods and research-backed programming that help girls take the lead—in their own lives and in the world. Research shows that girls learn best in an all-girl, girl-led, and girl-friendly environment.
Girl Scouts is a place where she'll practice different skills, explore her potential, take on leadership positions—and even feel allowed to fail, dust herself off, get up, and try again. Girl Scouts is proven to help girls thrive in five key ways as they: develop a strong sense of self, seek challenges and learn from setbacks, display positive values, form and maintain healthy relationships, identify and solve problems in the community.
The inclusive, all-female environment of a Girl Scout troop creates a safe space where girls can try new things, develop a range of skills, take on leadership roles, and just be themselves. Girl Scouts of Southeastern New England owns five beautiful camp properties, carefully maintained by our property staff for the benefit of our girls, alumnae, adult volunteers and the community at large. Day camps are located in Glocester, West Kingston and Swansea, MA, or overnight Camp Hoffman in West Kingston awaits the adventurous girl in grade 2-12 who wants to sing and sleep under the stars! No matter which camp your girl attends, she'll spend the summer making new friends, swimming, kayaking, exploring nature, and experiencing outdoor adventures. We invite you to find out why we proudly put the "Girl" in Girl Scouts at gssne.org!
