Please see below for different scouting opportunities/information:




Girl Scouts

Were ready to welcome you! Girl Scouts have been part of the St. Ferdinand community for over 70 years and are here to help you explore exciting things like the life skills, the outdoors and camping, STEM adventures, leadership, service opportunities, and building your courage, confidence, and character to make the world a better place!

We serve girls in grades K12 from any school in the area. Girls may join at any time during the year and at any grade level. We meet on alternating Thursday evenings at the St. Ferdinand Convent (when in person) and also on Zoom. For 20212022, we will do both types of meetings so no one is left out (subject to changing advisories, of course).
