Girl Scouts Overseas

USA Girl Scouts Overseas serves girls living overseas and attending American or international schools. Girl Scouts of the USA Overseas is part of a worldwide family of 10 million girls and adults in 145 countries.In Girl Scouts, girls discover the fun, friendship, and power of girls together. Through a myriad of enriching experiences, such as extraordinary field trips, community service projects, cultural exchanges, and environmental stewardships, girls grow courageous and strong. Girl Scouting helps girls develop their full individual potential to relate to others with increasing understanding, skill, and respect, develop values to guide their actions and provide the foundation for sound decision-making.

If you’re 5 to 17 years old, you can be part of the largest organization for girls on the planet! At Girl Scouts, you might explore the solar system, venture on a nature hike, become a weather watcher, write and star in a play, enjoy a scavenger hunt, or take an amazing trip. And you’ll do it with other girls and caring adults who just might become your friends forever.

From the minute you share the Girl Scout Promise and Law words girls have been saying for almost 100 years you’ll Discover, Connect, and Take Action.

USA Girl Scouts Oversea is open to ISB and non-ISB students.

Girl Scouts Daisy, grades K-1 Girl Scouts Daisies are in grades K-1 and meet in a nurturing, inclusive environment. They go on trips, learn about nature and science, and explore the arts and their communities. Girl Scouts Daisies can also earn Learning Petals and receive participation patches. Girl Scouts Brownies, grades 2-3 Girl Scouts Brownies work together, earn Girl Scouts Brownie Awards, and explore their community. Friendship, fun, and age-appropriate activities begin at the Girl Scout Brownie meeting and move out to the community and wider world. Girl Scouts Junior, grades 4-5 Girl Scouts Juniors earn badges and discover what girl power is all about through new activities and by learning to take charge of their own plans. They gain self-confidence as they explore the world in partnership with their troop/group leaders. Girl Scouts Cadette, grades 6-12 Girl Scouts Cadettes, Seniors and Ambassadors participate in Girl Scouting in many ways. Under the guidance of a trained adult advisor, girls mix and match activities and resources to suit their needs while giving back to their communities. They connect with each other and build self-esteem and confidence in their skills as they work on a range of projects and gain life experiences.
The troop leaders will determine meeting times. They are usually scheduled from 3:35 onward so that girls who have other activities can participate. Troop leaders try to select a day and time when the most interested girls are available so please write your day and time preferences on your applications and/or interest sheet. Meetings are held at ISB, and in some cases, at leaders’ home. ISB Girl Scouts holds many exciting events throughout the school year for all levels. These include an ice cream social, campouts on the school grounds, a Mother-Daughter Sock Hop, an Aquarium sleepover in downtown Bangkok, 1 other overnight trip (for older girls G4 and above), a Father-Daughter dance, and many others!
