Cadettes


Creating girl power!

(Grades 6-8)

Girl Scout Cadettes in sixth, seventh, or eighth grade broaden and deepen the Girl Scout experience. As a Cadette, you’re under the supervision of trained adult supervisors and have the freedom to mix and match activities and resources to solve problems and give back to your community.

You’ll participate in and share real-life experiences –even life-changing ones! You’ll deepen your understanding of yourself, your team and your community. You’ll also have the opportunity to be a great leader as you work towards your Silver Award, the highest honor a Cadette can earn! Learn more about upcoming events and programs for Girl Scout Cadettes.

Journeys

Journeys for Cadettes involve new challenges that lead to awards and meaningful experiences that then lead to higher self-awareness and interaction with others.

  • aMaze is a lot like real life — a journey of sudden twists, turns and surprises! Along the way, you’ll take steps toward being a better communicator and building interpersonal skills.
  • Breathe brings all of your senses into full focus and takes you on a journey that shows you how to  be fully alive among friends and family – or on your own!
  • MEdia helps you explore the world of media to deepen your experiences, cultivate new relationships and influence others!

 

Uniforms & Badges

As a Cadette, you will proudly display your troop number, awards and patches on your tan vest or sash. The Girl’s Guide To Girl Scouting includes a detailed diagram showing where to place badges on vests or sashes.

Awards

The highest award for a Cadette is the Girl Scout Silver Award. This award is an important marker of determination, character and leadership. You may work toward the Silver Award as a small group or individually.

As you complete Journeys, the Silver Award guidelines can take you through the various steps required to earn this honor.

 

Projects & Trips

Cadettes are ready for bigger responsibilities. You’ll be able to take part in meaningful service projects and take advantage of opportunities to give back to your community.

While working toward the Silver Award, Cadettes often discover a special passion for a particular area of service, which becomes a focus of their Girl Scout experience.

 

Travel & Destinations

As Girl Scouts bridge to Cadettes, opportunities for travel open up. These range from exploring local neighborhoods to overnight camping to national and even international travel.

  • The Travel Pathway will offer you a chance for leadership opportunities and cross-cultural understanding through nationally sponsored trips and troop travel.
  • Girl Scout Destinations span five categories including international, outdoors, science, people and getaways.

Camping is another opportunity that will help you build life skills, make your own decisions and grow with fellow Girl Scouts in healthy outdoor settings.
