Program Activities

What do Girl Scouts do as a member of San Jacinto Council? A little bit of everything! Whether it’s with their Girl Scout troop, a special interest group or on their own, girls of every level have the opportunity to participate in programs where they’ll explore an interest, learn new skills and maybe spark an interest in a new hobby – or even a career path!

In this list, you will find an overview of every program GSSJC has to offer. Want to learn how to sail on Galveston Bay? Interested in helping build a rain garden? Excited to compete on a Robotics FIRST Lego League team? As a Girl Scout in San Jacinto Council, you can do all of these things and more.

When you’re ready to sign up for a program, you can find current activity listings by browsing our events calendar, visiting our registration site and in every issue of The Golden Link.
