Religious Recognitions

All girls are invited to complete their My Promise, My Faith Recognition found in the Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting as well as their own faith’s specific recognitions. A girl’s faith community should be able to help her learn about the awards they offer. Girls can also:

Visit Pray Publications, a non-profit organization that works with many Christian faith communities to offer religious recognitions curriculum.

• Visit the National Catholic Committee for Girl Scouts of the USA and Campfire Girls for Catholic recognitions curriculum.

In many faith communities Girl Scouts work together to earn religious recognitions and plan a Scout Sunday/Sabbath service. The youth are recognized and may lead portions of the service, host fellowship, or other activities.
