Girl Scout Daisies
Girl Scouts in Grades K-1
Who are Daisies?
Daisies (grades K-1) are the youngest members of Girl Scouts. They are eager to explore the world around them and have fun along the way. The Daisy program is an introduction to the Girl Scout Leadership Experience.
Daisy Meetings and Patches
A typical Daisy meeting consists of games, songs, crafts and more, including attending council programs. Daisies can earn petal patches to wear on their uniform tunic. Each petal represents a part of the Girl Scout Law, like respect, honesty, helpfulness and caring. They earn the center for learning the Girl Scout Promise. Girls learn these concepts cooperatively, so they make new friends and try new things together.
As a Daisy, you might ...
- Go to the theatre or the circus
- Attend Council and community programs and meet other Daisies and older Girl Scouts
- Participate in the Girl Scout Cookie Sale, the world's premiere financial literacy program for girls
- Learn to travel in a group, on short trips in town
- Create arts and crafts projects
- Work together to accomplish goals
- Make decisions through discussion and voting
- Attend day camp
Girl Scout Journeys are age-level appropriate leadership programs that enable girls to plan and make decisions even at the Daisy level.
