  • Not anymore, but my oldest was a girlscout forever. She started at around 5 and didnt stop until she was around 13 or so? I liked it gave her something to do. She loved going and doing things with the other girls. I didnt like selling cookies much but it was alright. Now it is just not my thing or my youngest dd's thing so we dont do it. My youngest dd is 6 now and much more into physical sports. She does cheerleading, dance and gymnastics.

  • My older 2 girls did GS for a couple years. You have to be in kindergarten and 5 to be a Daisy scout. How good the troop is depends on the leader.

  • I've been a GirlScout leader for over 20 yrs. All of my girls have been in it since Kindergarten. A girl must be in Kindergarten to join. I think it is a very good organization. The girls learn life skills. They get to go on awesome trips. And they make lifelong friends. I would highly recommend it.
