Girl Scouts at Home

Welcome to the Girl Scouts at Home catalog! While our Girl Scout community is apart due to social distancing, Girl Scouts is not cancelled. With technology and flexible experiences, we are prepared to navigate the realities of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Please take the Internet Safety Pledge prior to participating in Girl Scouts at Home activities.

Activities for Girl Scouts

These activities were designed and created by staff at Girl Scouts of Western Washington.

The Great Cascadia Zombie Survival Challenge:
COVID-19 Edition

Since 2016, Girl Scouts have learned to be prepared, not scared in the face of a natural disaster. The current COVID-19 pandemic is a natural disaster in its own right. That's why we've re-written our Great Cascadia Zombie Survival Challenge curriculum to be applicable to the challenges Girl Scouts and their families are currently facing. Girl Scouts will learn how to be prepared for COVID-19 and will hopefully alleviate some anxiety in the process. Order the accompanying center patch and rockers through our online store here.
