Frontier Girls as an Alternative to Girl Scouts

Girl Scouts have been a part of American life for more than a hundred years. Most women today have wonderful memories of earning badges, going camping, singing Christmas carols, and learning a variety of useful skills within their scout troop.

According to the Girl Scout website, “Juliette “Daisy” Gordon Low assembled 18 girls from Savannah, Georgia, on March 12, 1912, for a local Girl Scout meeting. She believed that all girls should be given the opportunity to develop physically, mentally, and spiritually. With the goal of bringing girls out of isolated home environments and into community service and the open air. Girl Scouts hiked, played basketball, went on camping trips, learned how to tell time by the stars, and studied first aid.”

Over the years the Girl Scouts have consistently changed their program in an attempt to keep up with the times and keep girls involved. Unfortunately, the newest program to evolve, Journeys, is no longer a good fit for many families seeking the traditional Girl Scout experience. For families searching for an alternative to Girl Scouts, we created Frontier Girls.

Frontier Girls is a scout like program curriculum for girls ages 3 – adult that we offer as an alternative to the Girl Scout program. We focus on character building, life skills, community service and a love of learning.  We are  a strong supporter of our military personnel and veterans as well as their families.  Frontier Girls dedicates an entire section of its program to teaching the girls good character traits such as honesty, responsibility, kindness, and joy.  Frontier Girls goes beyond merely participating in community service; we empower girls to organize their own initiatives, fostering leadership and a sense of responsibility.

Frontier Girls offers an impressive array of over 1200 individual badges, making it one of the most versatile scouting programs available. In the age of the Internet, where information is readily accessible, Frontier Girls takes advantage of this by providing badges on almost any subject a girl wishes to explore. Whether it’s home skills, outdoor skills, or cutting-edge science and technology, Frontier Girls ensures that there’s a badge for every interest.

Frontier Girls troops are very flexible for busy families today. Our program is designed to work with multiple ages in a single troop, all working on the same badge at the same time, but at differing skill levels. Some troops are large with a wide age range, while others are small and may consist of a single age group. Some troops meet every week, some just once a month. 

While Girl Scouts still has a lot to offer the girls of today, each family is different and should research the various scouting style options that are available to them. Frontier Girls is just one.  Before making a decision for your family, you may also wish to look into:
