Mission:

Girl scouting builds girls of courage, confidence and character who help make the world a better place. The girl scout leadership experience provides girls in kindergarten through twelfth grade with a variety of leadership opportunities. The program encourages increased skill-building and responsibility, and also promotes the development of strong leadership and decision-making skills. At september 30, 2013, gsri served 8,740 girls with the help of 2,600 trained adults.

Programs:

Membership development and programsmonthly programs are delivered through a variety of different "pathways": girls may become part of a troop of similarly-aged girls, participate as an individual, or participate in a "series" of programs with a single focus (e. G. Astronomy). Girls may opt to attend summer camp, or join girl scouts through one of our urban after-school troops or 6-week summer programs. Older girls, especially, participate through unique travel opportunities - domestic and international. Programs focus on science and technology, healthy living, financial literacy, outdoor education, arts, leadership and self-esteem, travel, career exploration and much more. Community service is a component of virtually every pathway. The girl scout bronze, silver and gold awards are granted to a small percentage of girls who have completed the rigorous requirements of the awards, which include a leadership and community outreach component.

camping servicesgirl scout camps provide opportunities for girls to enjoy the natural world in the hopes that they will develop a respect for and love of nature. Five council-owned camps lend themselves to exploration and discovery and opportunities for girls to experience life outdoors in a multitude of ways. Activities at our camps include sailing, canoeing, kayaking, swimming, archery, rock wall climbing and hiking. Camp hoffman also boasts a deluxe ropes challenge course. Accommodations run from primitive camping in platform tents to sleeping in lodges. To serve the girls in our jurisdiction we maintain the following properties: camp hoffman in west kingston, ri; camp cookie in chepachet, ri; camp rocky farm in newport, ri; camp promising acres in swansea, ma; and camp narrow river, located along the narrow (pettesquamscutt) river in north kingstown, ri. Girls can participate in summer programs day and overnight and troops go camping and participate in outdoor days year-round. It is our greatest hope that, through the enjoyment of these girl scout camps, girls will grow into adults who care deeply about the natural world.
